In the waning moments of last year, we witnessed a report by the NY Times about the new slang sayings that erupted in 2007. Among them was:
A person who eats no meat, uses no animal-derived goods and prefers not to have sex with non-vegans.
Only a few moments into the new year and we're already aware that eco-sensitivity is going to leap out at us with the frequency of bad 3-D movies in the 80s (Jaws 3-D, anyone?).
In case we thought that Natalie Portman's avowed vegetarianism was merely an attempt to get around kashrut issues when dining out, Miss P takes her devotion to live animals one step further by having created a line of $200 vegan shoes.
According to the online report, "The Natalie Portman Collection arrives February 2008 online and at the NYC boutique located at 382 West Broadway. The shoes are available for pre-order on January 15. 5% of all vegan shoe profits will be going to charity."
Now you can pamper your inner Amidala without harming any animals, and still walk a mile in Natalie's shoes. I don't know if she's a vegansexual...that's personal, and you'll have to ask her yourself.
