I’ll go out on a limb here and say that when word broke that Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi had gone vegan, Ecorazzi was perhaps one of the very first news sources to cover it. Therefore, we hope we’re the first to tell you about Portia de Rossi’s brand new vegan shoe line! Yep, you heard right!

Recently at the Winter TCA’s Portia expressed interest in starting her own line of vegan footwear. What the Natalie Portman is going on?

Portia and Ellen have been animal-lovers for many years, but just recently came out of the vegan closet. However, according to Contact Music, the duo had decided to go vegan on their very first date. Portia reveals:

“When Ellen and I first got together I was wearing fur and Ellen was wearing very expensive Italian calfskin leather. She was giving me a hard time about wearing the fur and I said, ‘Why is a fox any more important than a cow?’ …We took that idea and went all the way with it. We are doing what we can.”

Here at the Razz we’re always excited to hear about famous folks getting involved and making positive change… and of course we love ourselves some hot veggie celebs! Stay tuned for more news of Portia’s vegan shoe line! We’re pretty sure this is going to be AWESOME!

    Sounds exciting! We also need more vegan purses and hand bags, please!

    I hope it’s more reasonably priced and not a limited production designer line like Natalie Portman’s shoes! Then perhaps I’d have a chance of being able to buy!! :)

    I’m glad they both made the connection quickly. And as Jamie said, I sincerely hope it’s more accessible than Natalie Portman’s line in availability and cost.

    Yes! More vegan shoes! And please make them affordable. We’re getting a lot of great shoes on the vegan market, but very few are affordable – under $100.

    This is exciting news!
    I hope they are affordable and gorgeous.
