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!
