Miley Cyrus' Vegan Leather Outfit Labeled 'Forward-Looking' By 'Vogue'

The fashion bible - which has been blasted for advertising fur in the past - dedicated a whole piece to the singer's wardrobe

Miley Cyrus is in London and giving us all a masterclass in how to wear vegan leather.

She's over here promoting her new single with Mark Ronson and so impressive has her cruelty-free dressing been that even fashion bible Vogue has been commending the songstress' vegan fashion efforts.

Yesterday, she posed for photos with fans outside the BBC studio wearing vintage faux fur Vivienne Westwords and vegan leather cowboy boots by Casadei.

But this isn't the first time on her London tour that she’s made a point of wearing animal-free alternatives to animal textiles.

The day before, she rocked Stella McCartney thigh high boots with a Chanel miniskirt (pictured above).

Vogue reported: "With vegan versions of fur, leather, and wool all in the mix in her wardrobe, Cyrus proves that skipping the authentic materials doesn't mean sacrificing style.

"With more and more brands giving up exotic skins and banishing harmful practices in favor of alternatives Miley's forward-looking outfits are more than a celebrity style moment. They're a peek at how we’ll all be dressing in the near future."

Vegan in Vogue

It's interesting that Vogue has devoted a whole piece to Cyrus' vegan choices when the mag was lambasted earlier in the year for having a full page ad for the British Fur Trade, with the tagline: "Fur now and forever."

Editorial departments often have little say over the commercial agreements made to bring in revenue - and no doubt, many Vogue readers really do believe in wearing fur and leather.

But it's great that they are highlighting that it is possible to be ethical and chic because that's how we encourage brands lower down the food chain to start developing cruelty-free alternatives too.

Not all of us can afford Stella, but if Topshop and & Other Stories knew that more of us wanted affordable versions of non-animal leather and suede, maybe they'd make more of an effort to look into it.
