Miss USA 1995 was the 44th Miss USA pageant, held at South Padre Island Convention Centre on South Padre Island, Texas culminating in the final competition and crowning on February 10, 1995.

At the conclusion of the final competition, Chelsi Smith of Texas was crowned by outgoing titleholder Lu Parker of South Carolina.[1] Smith became the seventh Texan titleholder, the first Miss Texas USA and Miss USA to win the Congeniality award and also the only Miss USA from Texas to win the Miss Universe title. She also became the 4th winner to be crowned as Miss USA in her home state.

After Smith won the 1995 Miss Universe pageant, first runner-up Shanna Moakler took over the Miss USA title. Moakler was the first former Miss Teen USA delegate to hold the Miss USA title. Moakler would later become an actress, reality star and a director of two Miss USA state pageants in Nevada and Utah.[citation needed]

The pageant was held on South Padre Island, Texas for the second time.[2] It was hosted by Bob Goen for the second consecutive year, and Daisy Fuentes offered commentary during the broadcast.[3] Barry Manilow provided entertainment.[citation needed]
