Fashion Loves Animals was a huge success! Let’s look at pictures! »
I attended Farm Sanctuary’s Fashion Loves Animals event this past weekend, they were honoring one of my favorite people: Leanne of Vaute Couture! As we arrived, I was quickly given a shot of asparagus soup (pictured above) made by new celebrity chef Jay Astafa! I was completely stoked since I had missed his popup dinner. I was also stoked because the soup was delicious!
Here’s Jay prepping behind the scenes.
Now, on to the Vaute fashion show!
Yes, lovely outfit. More importantly: OMG what a cute dog! And all the pups were up for adoption. No but really, the clothes were lovely. And I love these shoes by Love is Mighty. They’re made of old candy wrappers!
Notice the Brave GentleMan kicks.
I love this dress. There were new versions of this dress I’d seen at Vaute’s fashion week show—now it comes in lots of pretty floral patters! Leanne said they are at the Vaute Couture store now. Yay!
Beautiful picture of the back of this dress by me.
This puppy stole the show of course. Because PUPPY!
Beautiful picture of the end of the show by me. There’s Leanne with models in tow.
Here’s a behind the scenes shot from Max Gordon Photography (all the pics not taken by me were supplied by Vaute’s lovely PR person Meredith and are by Max Gordon or Farm Sanctuary). Also check out the sweater, I love it. I need it.
And here we have the stars of the show—and really the stars of any show they attend for that matter!: Leanne, Gene Baur, Discerning Brute Joshua.
And in closing, here’s a lovely Vine video I took:
OMG I had so much fun! Thanks, Farm Sanctuary!
Fashion Loves Animals Gala is almost here! »

OMG if there are goats there I will die and go to heaven and leave all my worldly riches to goats.
YES! Another Hella Vegan Eats pop-up! God is good.
