Models and Booking agents at leading UK modelling employment agency Models Direct have been unable suppress their delight when viewing images of all the super-cute pet models that have been popping up everywhere recently.
It seems that using pet models as the ultimate cute accessory has become a huge new trend for 2012 and we can’t help wondering whether this new approach has been inspired by dog actor Uggie, who featured in hit film The Artist last year.
Back in February we reported on Uggie’s incredible success in the film in our article Producers Of ‘The Artist’ Delighted To Have Booked Pet Actor Uggie after the extraordinarily popular pooch picked up ‘Best Dog in a Theatrical Film’ at the ‘Golden Collar’ awards. In fact, many of us here at Models Direct think he was the best thing about the production.
Since then we’ve brought you news of home designer Kirsten Korhani’s decision to include micro piglet pet models on the catwalk (Kirsten Korhani’s Piglet Pet Models Steal The Show At Toronto Fashion Week) and today we notice Paper Magazine’s new fashion editorial ‘Dog Days’ featuring an assortment of cute pups being held by models who are wearing some very special pieces by the likes of Jean Paul Gaultier, Prada and Stella McCartney.
Photographer Emily Shur has created something really special with this photo-shoot and she told Fashionista that the pet model stars were booked through various sources in order to find the most adorable pups around: “About half of the dogs are friends’ dogs, dogs I know personally. The other half were either referred to me by friends or responded to an email I sent out looking for small to medium sized dogs for the shoot. I tried to get a good variety of breeds, colors, etc.”
Tim Walker also photographed Kate Moss with some dog models for this month’s issue of Vogue and we can’t decide what we love more between them and the incredible shoes Moss was wearing.
