MuchMusic VJ Sarah Taylor is vegan, but not like Pamela Anderson
Last night, Tryst night club reeked of Axe body spray, imported beers were $7 and the hors d’oeuvres (fruit plates and crudités platters) were vegan. Ah, yes, another film festival party that had nothing to do with movies. This one was Toronto’s first-ever bash for PETA and was hosted by MuchMusic VJ Sarah Taylor.
A fashion show featured Canadian designers like Joeffer Caoc and cruelty-free clothing, including some takes on the lettuce bikinis PETA supporters often wear. Models looked they had stepped straight out of Maxim, enormous breasts and blond hair included.
We caught up with Taylor, who immediately asked us if we were wearing leather shoes. “Are you wearing fur?” she continued. We joked about having 12 mink coats at home but she didn’t seem amused. “I’m vegan. This is a cause I really believe in,” said Taylor. “I’m all about cruelty-free products.” When we asked if she was hoping to be Toronto’s Pamela Anderson (a huge supporter of PETA), she replied, “Looking down at my chest, I’d say no.”
