Anne Hathaway made bigger headlines for what she didn’t wear on the Les Miserables red carpet in New York City that what she did, so we weren’t surprised that her bondage-style gladiator heels warranted only a secondary mention. But the Oscar-nominated actress’s wardrobe malfunction buried another lede: Hathaway’s recent conversion to veganism, and the fact she had designer Tom Ford custom-make said shoes in faux-leather.

CRUELTY-FREE KICKS

But it wasn’t just her red-carpet footwear that eschewed animal products. For her role in the period drama, which opens in theaters tomorrow, Hathaway insisted on shoes that were just as cruelty-free.

For her role in Les Miserables, Hathaway made sure her character’s shoes were animal-free.

“She’s vegan, so we couldn’t use any animal materials on the shoes for her character Fantine,” costume designer Paco Delgado told Footwear News last Monday. “We had to find very specific shoemakers to create lace-up boots and ankle boots. We also did flats that were much more sophisticated.”

Another piece of shoe trivia? “We were shooting the actors singing in real time, so [we were] very careful with the materials we used to be as noiseless as possible,” Delgado added. “We used soft materials and insoles to stop the noise.”

One Response to “Anne Hathaway Wore Custom-Made Vegan Shoes for “Les Miserables” Role”

    Nice article, but I have to agree with Elaine A. about the “vegan pregnancy” bit, you’re pregnant and a vegan, fine, vegan pregnancy sounds like you’re having a vegan not a baby. And this “we are pregnant” thing also drives me crazy, you’re pregnant, he’s not. Other than that, good luck and hope all goes well.
