As a dedicated and outspoken vegan for more than 20 years, Pamela Anderson isn't one to sacrifice style or sexiness for her beliefs. And, she doesn't have to.

She wore vegan black stilettos to our interview right after she came on Megyn Kelly TODAY. They're made by MINK shoes.

"It's my friend. She wanted to make vegan shoes. She started making 10 or 20 pairs of shoes for her friends. Now, she's so popular. She can make any shoe you want vegan," said Anderson. "I have a lot of vegan products and you'd never know the difference. It's better to be a naughty vegan and embrace that."

She's not alone. Plenty of celebs, including Mena Suvari and Natalie Portman, refuse to wear leather, and still manage to look chic and on-trend. In fact, if you've thought that vegan shoes — footwear made without animal ingredients or byproducts — were frumpy leave those opinions at your front door.
