Fashion Week is a well-known meeting place of celebrities, socialites, industry notables, sports personalities, and business execs making for the most random photo-ops ever. But no show brings 'em out like last Thursday's New Yorkie Runway Celebrity Doggie Fashion Show. D-list celebrities and pooches for days? Amazing.
Miss USA 2011 Alyssa Campanella hosted five time NBA Champion Ron Harper, Real Housewife of New York Sonja Morgan, and Real World/Road Rules Challenge: Fresh Meat (2006) Kenny Santucci. There were also the best of the canine world including Ella Wilpon, Angel On A Leash's HALO 2012 Therapy Dog Of The Year winner, celebrity dog walker Ruth Taylor, internationally recognized pop on wheels Beefy the Skateboarding Dog. This might have been the best thing to happen to us ever but it may be a rough sign for NYFW overall.
