World's Most Beautiful Vegan Women
Is it all the tofu or the lack of saturated fat? Is it the peace of mind knowing that they're making ethical choices? Or is it just plain genetics? Whatever their secret, there's no doubt that these vegan celebrity women are some of the most beautiful women on the planet.
There's so many beautiful vegan celebrities, it was hard to narrow it down to these few. Check back frequently as I'll update with even more beautiful vegan women.Continue to 2 of 22 below.

Oh Ellen, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways...Ellen has never been one to take any flack from anyone when it comes to her appearance, her sexuality, her commitment to human rights, or her vegan diet. Kudos to you, Ellen Page, for showing Hollywood what it's like to be a normal human being complete with strengths, flaws and opinions and not just a walking mannequin.
Ellen brings diversity and (and beauty!) to any room she walks into. Plus, doesn't she seem like she'd be super fun at parties? I bet she makes some awesome vegan cookies.Continue to 3 of 22 below.

Ariana Grande had to be included on this list of the world's most beautiful vegan women just to make sure I included some younger celebrities amongst this list of ladies. It took me a while to find a photo of her wearing even this much clothing, as she seems to prefer flaunting it all. But you've got to admit - she is absolutely adorable. At 21, she looks much younger than her age, and, thanks to her healthy vegan diet, she'll still be looking good for decades to come.
Though she says she was raised on meat and cheese, she's very outspoken about being vegan, and told one interviewer: "“I love animals more than I love most people, not kidding. But I am a firm believer in eating a full plant-based, whole food diet that can expand your life length and make you an all-round happier person.” Agreed, Ariana, agreed.Continue to 4 of 22 below.

Laura Prepon is a beautiful woman any way you look at her and no matter what hair color she's rocking at the moment. She's classically beautiful, yet has very unique features. She's slender without looking like a coat rack, as so many celebrity women do, and she presents herself as an intelligent, confident, and bold woman who lives life to the fullest.
Laura seems like the type of woman who you could get into serious adventures with yet still bring home to meet your mom. The type of woman who'd make a comforting vegetarian casserole for dinner and then serve it with martinis. And she just oozes sensuality. She definitely deserves a spot on the list of the world's most beautiful vegan celebrities.
According to an interview she gave recently to Women's Running magazine, one of Laura's favorite snacks is homemade guacamole on top of a rice cake.Continue to 5 of 22 below.

Jenna Dewan Tatum
It's no surprise that the wife of one of Hollywood's hottest men and someone who has been called the Sexiest Man Alive (Channing Tatum) is absolutely gorgeous herself, but Jenna Dewan Tatum is not just beautiful, she is breathtakingly stunning - and a dedicated and vocal vegan who's not afraid to stand up for what she believes in, lending her support to several vegan charities.
"After going vegan", she says, "I felt so much better. My skin cleared up, I had a ton more energy and I just felt clearer in the head."Continue to 6 of 22 below.

Country music may not be filled with vegans the same way Hollywood is, but there's no doubt about it: Carrie Underwood is one beautiful vegan.
Carrie Underwood is a fan of tracking what she eats, and on any given day, her first entry is usually a vegan tofu scramble - her favorite breakfast. Dinner is often a vegetable stir-fry, and Carrie's a fan of dark vegan chocolate, as well. With so many delicious vegan chocolate options these days, who can blame her?Continue to 7 of 22 below.

As the only redhead on the list, Jessica Chastain has big shoes to fill. I love how she just oozes sensual classic Hollywood in this photo. The dress, the hair, the smile - it's all flawless. She's sexy without even trying, and showing less skin than many other celebrities do. She draws attention to herself just with her own natural beauty. And we love all of it, especially because she's vegan.
Jessica recently shared one of her recipes with another one of my favorite vegan celebrities, Ellen Degeneres. Here's Jessica's vegan chia seed pudding.Continue to 8 of 22 below.

Of mixed heritage, Christian Serratos is even more beautiful than this photo captures. Though she may not be the biggest vegan celebrity, she's been working in Hollywood since a very young age. You might recognize her from The Walking Dead, the Twilight movies, or, depending on your age, from a Nickelodeon show a few years back.
In a recent interview with Vegetarian Times magazine, Christian shared her favorite quick and easy homemade vegan salad dressing recipe: "You can make your own salad dressing by mixing together some extra virgin olive oil with vinegar and a little Sriracha hot chile sauce and a dash of pepper. It’s the best!"Continue to 9 of 22 below.

Tracy Chapman may not be who you think of when you think of beautiful vegan celebrities, but with those super chubby cheeks and electric smile, I think she's gorgeous, on top of being an insightful and poetic artist. She just radiates energy, confidence, mystery and intelligence. And that's super sexy.Continue to 10 of 22 below.

Kimberley Elise may not be the biggest name on this list, but she's been steadily working in Hollywood for years. She had a small role on Grey's Anatomy (alongside fellow vegan celebrity Sandra Oh) and has been in plenty of films and TV shows. So even though she may not be the biggest vegan celebrity, I do think she's among the most beautiful. She's looks much younger than her actual age - that baby-like face really works for her. I love that she usually wears her hair out naturally.
That smile, that glowing skin, that aura - must be because she's vegan.Continue to 11 of 22 below.

Zendaya is just 18, but since she's been vegetarian since the age of 9, she's clearly going to be vegetarian for life, and probably only to get more beautiful as she grows up more.
If you haven't heard of Zendaya, chances are you were born in the 80s or earlier. Zendaya is a Disney child star who has recently successfully entered the world of pop music. And, as a lovely young vegan woman, I wish her much success!Continue to 12 of 22 below.

I may be biased, because as a brunette myself I love beautiful brunette women, but I do think actress Olivia Wilde is a complete stunner. Her make-up is a bit over the top in this photo, but even when she's completely make-up free, I think she's naturally one of the most beautiful women on the planet.
Olivia has given multiple interviews about her vegan diet. Here's one quote: "It’s a way of life and makes me as a person feel really good and physically look better."Continue to 13 of 22 below.

Portia de Rossi
I'll admit she takes a bad photo from time to time, but Portia de Rossi is such an incredibly beautiful woman, and she's been very open about her veganism, which she delved into alongside her spouse Ellen Degenerous (who is another one of my favorite vegan celebrities). Ellen and Portia had a fully vegan wedding, catered by vegan celebrity chef and cookbook author Tal Ronnen. Portia was beautiful as a younger woman and she's still beautiful now.
Portia has said she went vegan literally overnight after moving to a farm in California and seeing how the other animals, especially the baby cows, interacted with a sick horse she took in. It was her "aha" moment, and that night she and Ellen decided to go vegan together and while they took their time and did lots of research about how to have a healthy vegan diet, they haven't looked back since.Continue to 14 of 22 below.

At over 60 and a vegetarian since a child, Christie Brinkley is a great example of what life-long healthy living can do. Well, life-long healthy living and good genetics combined, at least. Growing up in the 80s and 90s, Christie Brinkley was the "it" girl of my childhood years. Now, she's still gorgeous, and while she's probably had a little help from the plastic surgeon's scalpel, or at least some good botox, she's kept whatever work she's had done subtle enough that it looks natural.
As the oldest woman on this list of the most beautiful vegan celebrities at 61 years old, I'm fairly confident that Christie Brinkley will still merit a spot on the list of the world's most beautiful vegan women a decade from now.Continue to 15 of 22 below.

India Arie made waves with her beauty, her voice, her style and her presence in her younger years, and I think she's still beautiful enough to be included in a list of the world's most beautiful vegans. She's still not afraid to take fashion risks, and has her own unique style - and pulls it off flawlessly. Just look at that dress. I kind of want her to be my personal shopper.
India Arie shows the world what it's like to have a unique personality and sense of style while still being 100% classy.Continue to 16 of 22 below.

Ah, Sandra Oh. Every Grey's Anatomy fan has a special place in their heart for Sandra Oh's character on the show, Dr. Christina Yang. She's certainly a beautiful woman, and while she's well known as a frequenter of vegan restaurants in the LA area, Sandra Oh has never actually come out as a vegan, so we're left to wonder if she just loves enjoying healthy vegan meals, or if she's dedicated to eating vegan full time.Continue to 17 of 22 below.

Sure, her career has been dogged with controversy, but there's no doubt she's a beautiful woman. Vanessa Williams is just as beautiful now as she was in 1983 when she was the first African-American woman to be crowned Miss America.Continue to 18 of 22 below.

What's not to love about Rooney Mara? She's one tough chick - and she's vegan. I love her personal style as well: It's simple, plain and classic, yet still striking. She's so beautiful that she doesn't need anything fancy to stand out, so she keeps her make up minimal. Rooney is perhaps best well known for portrayal of Lisbeth in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Rooney follows a gluten-free vegan diet and tries to eat mostly fruits and vegetables, avoiding processed food.Continue to 19 of 22 below.

She hasn't been in the public eye too much since her Cosby Show years, but Lisa Bonet, perhaps better known as Denise Huxtable Kendall and Lenny Kravitz's ex-wife, is one beautiful woman and one beautiful vegan.
She's said to be very health-conscious and a fan of yoga, dabbling in the raw food diet.Continue to 20 of 22 below.

Chinese actress Gao Yuanyuan isn't a huge celebrity in the United States, but she is extraordinarily popular in China. At 36, she's been starring in Chinese films for nearly two decades, though to be fair, she may actually be vegetarian rather than vegan.Continue to 21 of 22 below.

At well over 50, Michelle Pfeiffer seems to be nearly ageless. She thinks it's because of her vegan diet, and who am I to disagree?
She says she tried out eating vegan for two months and watched her cholesterol plummet from previously unhealthy levels. After seeing such great results so quickly, she decided to stick with it, and hopes it helps her avoid chronic illness and add years to her life.Continue to 22 of 22 below.
