Turns out Rock of Love stars aren't the only ones bedecking their pooches in designer bling. T magazine reports that designers Carolina Herrera, Joseph Altuzarra, Maria Cornejo, Jenni Kayne, and Dana Lorenz are also showing their puppy love by creating everything from macaroon-like treats to pearl necklaces (collars?), raincoats, and mini-Polos. Because if anyone understands how to create for the discerning pup, its these folks. Take Lorenz' long-haired dachshund, Blitz: "He likes classic items from Barbour Dog and Orvis, and he loves getting outfitted at the Ralph Lauren mansion on Madison. But he hates frills." See all the the stitches for these designer's bitcheshere. [T Magazine]
