Natalie Portman Smells Of Vegan And Dior Fur

by | 23rd, December 2010

NATALIE Portman, star of Black Swan and an all round babe, is the new face of Miss Dior perfume. Nice work. Only, Portman is a vegetarian activist. And she does not use animal products, like fur and leather:

I’m often interrogated about being vegetarian (e.g., “What if you find out that carrots feel pain, too? Then what’ll you eat?”).

She tells InStyle magazine:

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… They remade all my shoes so I can wear Dior shoes without taking lives.

She said: “It was definitely a war inside my head for a long time and finally, I was like, we can actually do something very positive with this, especially given the kind of company Dior is, which is truly elegant.”

You won’t find many diehard fashionistas argue with that. But it must have been quite a feat to convince John Galliano to remake everything with vegan-approved materials, considering what he sent down his runway this year. Let’s just say it’s not the type of company a true vegan would associate with. Especially when the activist in question  has compared eating meat to rape .

But don’t take my word for it. Consider Style.com’s  narrative of Dior’s Fall 2010 Ready-to-Wear collection :

After Karlie Kloss had swept on, swirling a brown leather highwayman’s cape over a ruffled pink chiffon dress and brown thigh boots, the narrative was
