Shuggie wears pearl necklace, £2,190, and pearl belt (worn as necklace), £800, both by Chanel, 26 Old Bond Street, London W1, 020-7493 5040; sapphire and yellow gold bracelets, from a selection, by Ritz Fine Jewellery, 150 Piccadilly, London W1, 020-7493


Here, man’s best friends show us how to wear a girl’s best friend, as a clutch of furry supermodels – a pug, a Boston Terrier, a couple of bulldogs and a right pair of poodles – are frocked-up in a selection of high-impact, high octane jewellery and accessories from the likes of Lanvin, Louboutin and Kenzo.

As the year draws to a close, here are our suggestions for pedigree party dressing at the height of the festive season, ensuring you look top dog, rather than a dog’s dinner. Just don’t mention the cat’s pyjamas.

Not sure we could get any more puns in there – so enjoy this cavalcade of canine couture eleganza. Woof woof!
