If you're a cat person, look away now. The Collars & Coats Gala Ball in aid of the Battersea Dogs and Cats home is fast approaching: Thursday 8th November is when the best-dressed dogs of London (plus fashionable owners) will be out in their finery, but if you simply can't wait until then you're in luck, because ELLE has an insider preview of two of the night's models.
Allow us to introduce you. Please imagine the soothing tones of a honey-voiced showbiz presenter while you read the following…
Four year old Frankie the beagle is modelling a Jenny Packham creation. Apparently, Dita Von Teese has something very similar in her own wardrobe, by the same designer.
Meanwhile Cree the Rottweiler-cross puppy has on a Matthew Williamson creation. Matthew told us, ‘My muse was my American cocker spaniel, Coco… she is very chic.’
More designer dog-wear from a huge list of designers will be auctioned off to raise funds for this worthy cause at the event next month.
