Natalie Portman’s Special Dior Treatment

Published by PETA.

I have but two great loves in life: animals and shoes. But there’s nothing I hate more than when the latter causes the former suffering. So I was over the moon—and slightly jealous—when I heard that mayjah fashion house Dior had made special vegan shoes for the new face of its Miss Dior Cherie campaign, Natalie Portman.

Portman, a vegan shoe designer herself and a girl after my own heart, has been known to rock Stella McCartney on many a red carpet. (BTW, did you hear that I’m giving away a Stella McCartney bag on PETA’s Facebook page?) But for her media appearances promoting Black Swan (my new favorite movie), she’s been switching it up between McCartney accessories and her veganized Dior shoes.

“One of the things that’s been so nice is that Dior made all of the shoes for me with no animals and no leather or anything, because I don’t wear any leather,” Portman told “They remade all my shoes so I can wear Dior shoes without taking lives.” Ya, that’s pretty nice.
