What did you do last night? Oh really, yeah that sounds cool. Me? Oh, I just partied hard with some amazing fur-free friends from the HSUS for their fourth annual Cruel Vs. Cool Ceremony – an event celebrating compassionate fashion and general fur-free awesomeness.
Wearing my proud NO FUR pin, I navigated through the crowd of beautiful people and munched on some delicious vegan hors d’oeuvers while listening to the DJ talents of super-model extraordinaire, Agyness Deyn. Dear Agyness, will you marry me?
Because gawking is creepy, I took a break from staring at Ms. Deyn and chatted it up with New York City’s very own discerning brute, Joshua Katcher and vegan shoe designer to the stars – Elizabeth Olsen. Olsen is the next big thing in vegan shoes and you’re gonna be hearing a lot more about her on Ecorazzi very soon.
Chatting all things vegan can make a boy thirsty, so I headed to the bar where I ran into the talented crew from SuperVegan.com and promised, promised, promised to attend one of their Vegan Drinks events before the year was over! We also gave love to some of our friends from the Farm Sanctuary and dished about their SUPER EXCITING winter event coming up in just a few weeks (more on that later today). Before the evening was over we made sure to say hello to America’s Next Top Activist, Nigel Barker, who’s screening of A Sealed Fate we’ll be attending next week! You guys have to check that out! Finally, I made a quick call to Chloe Jo, the General of Girlie Girl Army ,and gossiped about the whole Maggie Gyllenhaal fur controversy. Oh, jeez!
I’m don’t mean to be cheesy here (because we all know cheese ain’t vegan), but I gotta a little vaclempt being around so many compassionate people who had all come together for something truly important – a commitment to fur-free fashion.
If you still think fur is cool, check out the HSUS’s fur-free website and learn why wearing fur is never, ever, ever, ever, ever okay! Happy winter, everyone!
