As we mentioned back on Christmas Day, the beautiful Natalie Portman has helped create a new vegan shoe line. Yesterday, the actress kicked off the launch with a party at Te Casan in New York City. Ironically, while Portman follows a vegan lifestyle when it comes to fashion sense (no products made from animals), she’s admitted that she’s not quite there on the food side of things. Which makes this quote from the shoe site all the more puzzling:
“As a vegan, it’s been challenging finding designer shoes made of alternative materials. This collection offers a great selection without compromising quality or style.”
What do you think? Is Natalie a full-fledged vegan now or living by the fashion definition?
Portman’s shoes will be available online at TeCasan.com and at the NYC boutique located at 382 West Broadway. 5% of shoe profits from her line will go towards charity. Jump over to JustJared for all the photos.
