Model and goodwill ambassador for the World Health Organization Liya Kebede is pictured here showing off some fancy eco, fair trade and vegan fashion! The dress is Kebede’s own design and handmade by local women in her native country of Ethiopia. The shoes, of course, are from Olsen Haus — one of our very, very favorite green and cruelty-free lines. A big ‘Yay’ to Vogue for highlighting fashion with a conscious!

      Mandi, Mandi, you just made my day with “malnourished Brazilians dressed in dead animals” I’m laughin my head off!

      Unfortunately, this seems to be just a greenwashing campaign.
      If they are to sustain their commitment to green fashion, then for cryin out loud, Vogue should stop promoting more of those unethically produced fashion items that probably incurs a ton of carbon footprint from production, to shipping to parading in catwalks…
