Vogue Pairs Famous Fashion Quotes With Photos of Dogs in The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

Westminster Afgan Hound - Coco Chanel
“I don’t do fashion. I am fashion.” — Coco Chanel

The editors at Vogue quite brilliantly took advantage of the fact that Fashion Week and The Westminster Kennel Club Championships 138th Annual Dog Show were happening simultaneously in New York City and did a photo shoot with twenty of the participating dogs. The photos were then paired with famous fashion quotes that best fit the dog. The results are both beautiful and humorous at the same time.

Vogue sent photographer Philippe Jarrigeon behind the scenes earlier this week to meet just a handful of the 3,000 dogs who have traveled to New York City from all over the country—from Red, the Rhodesian ridgeback from Dover, Pennsylvania, to Jeannie, a handsome shar-pei from Greenville, South Carolina—to flaunt their style. Like our favorite supermodels, these dogs have personality, charisma, and they know how to work it in front of a camera. Click below to see who caught our eye. As Coco Chanel once said, “Fashion is ephemeral, but style is eternal.”

Westminster French Bulldogs - Yves San Laurent
“Fashions fade, style is eternal.” — Yves Saint Laurent

Westminster Puli -Yohji Yamamoto
“Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy—but mysterious … But above all, black says this: ‘I don’t bother you—don’t bother me'”. — Yohji Yamamoto
