Beyond Skin And PETA Partner To Create Vegan Oscar Shoe
Olga Kurylenko is set to wear an eco-fashion gown to the Academy Awards this Sunday designed by Red Carpet Green Dress contest winner and French fashion design student, Alice Elia, but that won’t be the only earth-friendly duds on the gorgeous actress and model. The “Vampire Academy” star will be strutting down the famous red carpet in a pair of vegan shoes by Beyond Skin, an ethical U.K. based footwear and fashion label.
PETA is partnering with Beyond Skin to develop a vegan, limited edition, red carpet shoe and this honorable meeting of the vegan minds will be debuted when Kurylenko hits the red carpet in her cruelty-free fashion on March 2nd. The stylish footwear will be a faux suede and metallic trimmed evening shoe made from Dinamica, a material constructed out of 100% recycled bottle caps. It will be made available to the public on March 3rd, with 10% of proceeds going to Cameron’s eco Muse School in CA.
Beyond Skin was recently given a a nod for Most Stylish Women’s Flat Shoes at the second annual PETA-Approved Vegan Fashion Awards, and their ethical designs have been worn by famous pro plant-based stars like Natalie Portman and Anne Hathaway. With cruelty-free lifestyles gaining momentum, we are sure to see more earth and animal friendly fashions on the market that look good, feel great and hurt no one.
