Fashion » Natalie's Night
If half as many people go to see The Other Boleyn Girl as attended the launch of her new vegan footwear line for Te Casan, Natalie Portman is poised to be a box-office champ. Despite a near-blizzard Tuesday night, throngs headed to the company’s massive flagship in SoHo to nibble vegetarian snacks, sip Champs and view the collection of ultra-ladylike, leather-free sandals, pumps and ballet flats. Each bearing a moniker beginning with the letter P (as in Petra, Pixie, Pia), the shoes are constructed from satin, fabric and assorted pseudo-animal skins. Of course, Portman is the world’s best walking, talking advertisement for her new endeavor. Clad in a little Derek Lam frock, she looked adorable as she milled among the crowd. On her feet? Fire engine-red, faux-patent “Pippa” Mary Janes.
