Some of you may have already heard that Natalie Portman's new line of shoes is going to come out on January 15th. All her designs are animal-friendly, meaning they are cruelty-free and are produced in humane conditions. Even though I'm not quite as tenacious as Ms. Portman, I greatly admire the fact that she's put forth the effort to make this difference.
Elle.com has new pictures of the shoes and details on where to purchase. Each pair will set you back about $200. No one said it was cheap to be cruelty-free, unfortunately. Style-wise, I sort of feel like all of the shoes look a bit dated. I mean, they don't look necessarily out-of-fashion, but the preview pictures remind me of something I could have seen at a Nine West in 1998. I do rather like the shiny Mary Jane heels, though.
Psst... Honestly, I think most of the drive to buy is caused by the Natalie Portman name.
