Mena Suvari: “To feel my absolute best I also needed to veganize my closet”
“I’ve been vegan for almost 10 months now and I went completely cruelty-free in my life even with my beauty products and my whole wardrobe. I feel really good making the personal changes that I did and I’ve always loved fashion, so I wanted to make it a point, for whatever it’s worth, and show people that you can have fun with sustainable fashion and that it’s possible.”
“In continuation of becoming Vegan, I soon realized that in order for me to feel my absolute best I also needed to veganize my closet and replace animal items with cruelty-free materials!”
“I recall the moment I walked into Little Pine with my overpriced, designer handbag (which was a massive leather tote) and feeling like an a**hole. I knew then that I would donate of it all! All my handbags, my shoes, my leather pants and start anew. As is practice with all things I decide to change, I quickly get to work! I went home and literally put all non-vegan clothing items in bags to “clean house.””
Suvari, who will star in new sitcom American Woman, goes on to list some of her favorite vegan and cruelty-free fashion brands (both local and international), stating:
“I have always loved fashion and I think it’s so important to show how you truly can have it all by “doing good” and giving back. I look forward to continuing my journey of finding more and more designers and special pieces to add to my closet.”

Vegan actress Kate Mara is also in the process of veganizing her closet, namely “trying to get rid of and not buy leather products anymore.” Her sister Rooney, who is also a vegan actress, has launched the Hiraeth Collective, a vegan clothing and shoe line made in Los Angeles.
