Quantcast Vegetarian StarElizabeth Olsen

Chace Crawford

“My father was a farmer. He taught me a lot. He was a good business man, ran a great farm. He refused to plant GMO seeds (genetically modified). But the neighboring farmer did, and his seeds blew into our farm. Dad sued and lost his farm after an expensive lawsuit with the biggest GMO manufacturing company. They were crooks.”

Chace Crawford‘s character Cole, in the film Peace, Love and Misunderstanding. Cole is a butcher dating a vegetarian who is disgusted that he “dismembers animals for a living.” Cole thinks he can make up for the loss of his father’s farm by butchering local meat and supporting local farmers, a move that softens even his vegetarian girlfriend’s heart (Elizabeth Olsen).

Sometimes truth is more of a pain to organic farmers than fiction. Planting crops beside a conventional farm that uses GMOS can and does cause contamination, risking the organic farmer’s certification and livelihood.

Several vegetarian/vegan fashion designers are featured in a chron.com article on cruelty-free fashion, including Leanne Hilgart of vegan outerwear company Vaute Couture, Inder Bedi of Matt & Nat handbags and Elizabeth Olsen of Olsen Haus Vegan Shoe.

“Fashion isn’t my background, but I’m interested in fulfilling a need,” Hilgart said. “I didn’t really know if people would respond, so I crossed my fingers. A lot of people ordered their winter coats in June.”

“All the pretty, warm coats weren’t vegan, so I was always cold. I thought I was the only person who wanted one.”

Elizabeth Olsen started Olsen Haus in 2008 and her shoes range from $150-$265.

“There was such a big gap in the market for stylish vegan shoes and, once I went vegan, what was I going to wear?” she said. “I needed to do this. It’s not granola fashion, and I’m not a hippie. I made what I like and what’s on trend.”

The September Issue Los Angeles Special Screening

If you could pick any one celebrity to dress vegan, who would it be?

Obviously those fur wearing hags of Hollywood top the list.

Vegnews.com recently spoke to three vegan fashion designers, Inder Bedi of Matt & Nat, Elizabeth Olsen of OlsenHaus, and Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart of Vaute Couture on who they’d like to play dress up with.

Leanne of Vaute Couture answered:

“I adore Ginnifer Goodwin, and she has just reserved her own Vaute coat! This made my month. Next, I would flip to dress Ellen [DeGeneres]. To steal the immortal words of Sting, “Every little thing she does is magic.” For non-vegan celebrity, Audrey Hepburn is my all-time favorite.”

Inder would like to take his fashion stab at Natalie Portman and Madonna.

Emily Deschanel and Cameron Diaz are favorites for Olsen.

If you want to copy Ginnifer’s style, you can choose your very own Vaute coat online at vautecouture.com.

Elizabeth Olsen’s Olsen Haus Shoes Make Vegan Stylish

Written by Vegetarian Star on Friday, June 19th, 2009 in Fashion.


Vegan shoe designer Elizabeth Olsen has her own slideshow going on at New York Magazine.

The pics feature several of Elizabeth’s designs like the Balance in Black and Red; Ultra Suede on the left and Brazil in Citron; Ultra Suede on the right.

Elizabeth’s been a vegetarian for 19 years and a vegan for the past 2 years.

“I wanted to be the example of stylishness being synonymous with being aware of where your item came from, what it’s made of, and its impact on the earth, animals, and people,” she said, of her decision to launch her collection.

And just cause they’re vegan, doesn’t mean they have to be plain or ugly.

“Why should something, because it is vegan or earth-friendly, always be in neutral colors, or a loose relaxed fit?”
