Portman Created Vegan Shoe Line Because Target Just Wasn't Cutting It

natalie_portman.jpgThe Times has a great interview with Natalie Portman; incidentally conducted while shopping for ingredients for vegan cupcakes at a Whole Foods. Anyways, as expected, Portman goes into the ‘why’s behind her new shoe line and the inspiration for the idea. Here’s a highlight:

“Basically, I did it out of a lack of choice. Stella McCartney does great shoes, but they’re expensive and very fashiony. I wanted a mary-jane shoe without leather. I’ve been getting stuff from Target, which is de facto vegan because it’s so cheap. But I did need some shoes that weren’t made of canvas or plastic.”

While we wouldn’t call $250 shoes an inexpensive option, I guess compared to Stella McCartney’s prices they’re a steal. I also found it interesting that all profits from the shoes will go towards the Nature Conservancy. Nice touch.

Oddly, the author says Portman is wearing a “jade cashmere sweater” during the interview. She may be mistaken, but we’re pretty sure cashmere goats might object to a vegan wearing their coats.
