Kathy Freston, Fashionista

Freston moves beyond being known for her wellness books.

The same woman who wowed Oprah into giving veganism a go is now wowing the fashion elite. Kathy Freston, author of Quantum Wellness: A Practical and Spiritual Guide to Health and Happiness, has just been added to Vanity Fair’s 2009 International Best-Dressed List. The gorgeous, lithe blonde joins the ranks of fashion heavy-hitters such as Anne Hathaway, Brad Pitt, Barack and Michelle Obama, Renée Zellweger, and First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. In the Vanity Fair feature, Freston notes Stella McCartney, another chic vegan, as her favorite shoe designer, and describes her personal style as “cruelty-free.“ Freston proves that there is nothing more stunning than the combination of smarts and style.
