Get Vegan with Demi
Huge sale next week on Stella McCartney shoes in N.Y. and L.A.

Friday, June 25, 2004

Stella McCartney—a longtime vegan and animal rights activist—made a strong point not to use animal products in her chic clothes so popular with the Hollywood set. She even went so far as to make her shoe collection, that includes vinyl stilettos ($350 retail), free of any animal products (no leather!). Cameron Diaz, Natalie Portman and Demi Moore all have a pair of the sexy summer shoes and now they’re going to be marked down 60% at both her Los Angeles and New York boutiques. We’re certain those Hollywood types who want in on the trend will flock to the store to cash in on the discount. So even if it’s just to people watch or to dress with a good cause in mind, check out Stella’s shoe sale—it’s definitely going to be a social meeting point.



Los Angeles:

8823 Beverly Blvd., West of Robertson

310-272-7051

June 29th- 30th

New York:

And, of course, I am nowhere near her stores. I'm half a state up from the LA one. :: sigh :: I love the look of her shoes.

I have seen them in person and even tried on a pair at Language. I found them to be a bit uncomfortable. Maybe it was just me. They would be good for anyone with an objection to leather who can wear such pointy, high-heeled shoes. Otherwise, there are many other nice shoes to be had for less money.

I have seen some Stella McCartney shoes, and they had leather soles.

I thought they were made entirely of man-made materials.

I think they are all man-made, from what I've heard.

She is a vegetarian, so I doubt she'd have shoes with leather soles...

when she was at Chloe, she wouldn't make things with leather there, either, although Phoebe Philo has brought it back.

I like the style of her shoes, but I too, have heard that they're uncomfortable, which is a shame, as I adored the pumps that were such a hit a season ago...she seems to think they're comfortable, though - she wears them herself to events all the time.

I adore her clothes, though - a lot from the Spring 2004 RTW collection, along with this dress from the Fall 2004 RTW collection. She also wore an amazing dusky purple coloured gown to the Metropolitan Gala thing in NY recently that I adore and I wish I could own...

her shoes are uncomfy for me, and I don't think they have good quality.

Nope, she doesn't use leather. Period.

Not at all.

i tried on a pair at saks the other day...they looked good on the shelf...but the way they were cut...the front dug into my foot...i had them on for less than 5 min and when i took them off...there was a deep red mark on both my feet...

i guess that's why they were still there...completely impossible and not cute to see your foot squishing out of a shoe...
