Celebrity Vegan Fashion

Last Updated: April 14, 2024

Miley Cyrus & Stella McCartney

At the 2018 Met Gala, Cyrus chose to wear Stella McCartney, one of the pioneers in vegan and sustainable fashion. In an interview with Vogue, Cyrus called for the fashion industry to make the change, as fabulous fashion doesn't have to mean torture.

The garment was a halter top with a plunging neckline, which showed off her tattoos and sideboob, making for a more risque look on the red carpet compared to some of the other wardrobe selections at the Met Gala. Miley's dress also boasted a train not too long or too short, but long enough to make a statement and require some assistance as she walked around. To embrace the theme of "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination," Miley wore Sydney Evan custom hoops with a large cross, a pyramid spike cross charm, small cross studs, and a pave chain link ring and necklace.

Miley also posted a bunch of photos of herself in the dress to her Instagram, all black-and-white snapshots. The ensemble apparently had a crown as well, but it looks like she left it at home. She shared some of the behind-the-scenes videos of the photoshoot to her Instagram Story, which included her taking a bite of a large cross.

“I’m here so excited to be a part of this because I think this moment can be about so many different things, and for me, I want to bring a message which is veganism and that there doesn’t have to be torture in fabulous fashion,” Cyrus said.

“You can be stylish and sustainable all at the same time,” McCartney added.

Alicia Silverstone Prefers Second-Hand

Silverstone has been a vegan activist for years, from her beauty products to her diet. But the actor isn't slacking when it comes to sustainability either. In an interview with Vogue, Silverstone explained the guidelines she uses when she buys clothes, which includes purchasing used items and items made out of eco-friendly material.

Her various efforts to raise awareness about veganism have continued to give Alicia considerable press over the years, including the title of the world’s sexiest vegetarian by PETA in 2004. Then, in 2009 Silverstone teamed up with Neal D. Barnard, M.D. to release her first book, The Kind Diet: A Simple Guide to Feeling Great, Losing Weight, and Saving the Planet, an easy read chock full of personal insights about her decision to go meat-free.

Silverstone continues to address vegan lifestyle and culture issues on her blog, The Kind Life. Plus, she rocks some pretty hot vegan outfits at the star-studded events she attends (which, as one would guess, are often animal rights-related).

“I have some guidelines when it comes to clothes, or anything really,” Silverstone said. “First, I try to find it used so I’m not creating more waste. If I can’t find it used, I’ll make sure it’s made with an eco-material. If I can’t find it in either of those categories, I’ll buy something regular. But I rarely have to do that.”

Anne Hathaway’s Contributions

Anne first embraced a vegan lifestyle following her role as Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises. In preparation for the film, she followed an "almost-vegan" diet. "In Anne's case, she's a veggie, near vegan, so we started with that dietary platform," her nutrition coach at the time, Jackie Keller, told Huffington Post.

In 2017, Hathaway announced that she would be wearing only eco-friendly clothes for the press tour for her film, Colossal. Hathaway's stylist, Penny Lovell, revealed the news on Instagram. "All of her choices for this tour are sustainable and will be either vintage pieces or archival runway looks," Lovell wrote.

Among Hathaway's press-tour clothes were a 2016 Armani Privé gown and a $20 dress she bought at a flea market. Though it's unclear if she continued the practice for other press tours, the decision sent a big message to the fashion industry.
