Inspired by Isaac Mizrahi's Poodles, We Launch Our Competition for Scene-Stealing Furry Friends
Hot on the heels (or, paws) of last week's annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, Isaac Mizrahi sent a parade of dyed-to-match poodles down the runway for his fall 2011 presentation. Sporting pouf 'dos to top off a series of pastel tea dresses, models clutched what might be this season's It accessory: pups made over with lavender, bubblegum pink and tangerine coats. Mizrahi was inspired by a childhood memory of his mother's apricot poodle Pom Pom, who sported pink toenails and a rhinestone collar. "When I was a kid, French poodles were the fanciest things imaginable,"
says the designer. Today we present images shot backstage at the show, which wrapped up NYC Fashion Week in a colorful bow.
Can your beloved pet out-glam these canines? NOWNESS invites you to upload a photo of your
furry friend looking its finest—be it Siamese kitten, Irish wolfhound or Shetland pony—and

your pet's name and breed; you will receive notification when the
image is live on the site. Submissions and voting is open from today
