To be honest, I haven't really cared about the outcome of a beauty pageant since watching Olive compete in the "Little Miss Sunshine" contest. But after learning that Miss New York USA Davina Reeves is vegan, that's all changed. After suffering from health problems, lethargy, and skin flare-ups, Davina decided to try a vegan diet.
Her yearlong trial is now a lifetime commitment: "I just can't go for it and not have the new knowledge affect me. The effects are far beyond my body—it's the environment, my carbon footprint, and treatment of animals," she says.
Sexy and smart: a winning combination. I know what I'll be doing on May 16, when Davina vies for the Miss USA crown. Save the date!
