Vegan Anne Hathaway’s footwear at the Les Miserables premiere was the talk of Tinseltown this week. The 2013 Golden Globe nominee asked Tom Ford to design the custom leather-free boots that made her daring look.

Vegan Carrie Underwood is in extreme demand, too. She just scooped up Female Artist of the Year honors at the American Country Awards, and she’s always a favorite when it comes to animal issues. In her recent interview with Self magazine, Carrie said, “My veganism is based on a concern about where my food is coming from.
