"Vegan options are now on every menu and in every grocery store, and you can't turn on the radio or TV these days without spotting a vegan superstar," she says. "We've come so far in 20 years, and that's thanks in large part to PETA's 'beautiful vegan celebrities,' who have inspired millions of people to leave animals off their plates." Past Most Beautiful Vegan titleholders have included actor Benedict Cumberbatch, soccer star Alex Morgan and actress Maggie Q.
