Just in case you haven’t heard, everyone’s current favorite Jennifer (Lawrence) is covering Vogue’s September issue. While clicking through the shots (here), I paused at the above and thought this might be the most perfect Fall image we will see (forget what I said about the Saint Laurent-clad Amanda Seyfried). While that wool Louis Vuitton coat is in a league of it’s own, and the juxtaposition of the silk shorts with the otherwise Jackie-O polished look is spot on…it’s really the dog that completes the image. Upon reading, I learned the photographed pup’s name is WINSTON (!!!).
Perhaps it’s largely due to Vogue.com’s “Cat Week” spin on Shark Week last Monday, or perhaps it’s because I know I can’t keep a dog in my shoebox Manhattan apartment, but for the first time ever, I’ve found myself wanting a cat.
If I’m being totally honest, maybe it’s because I think it will be a really great accessory and really compliment the aesthetic of my apartment. Maybe I think it will photograph really, really well. Regardless, animals kind of complete us, right? HAVE YOU SEEN 101 DALMATIANS? Whatever. Until then, I have my Winston.
Here’s some favorite cat and dog images from Vogue and other places to further my point.
Lindsey Wixson, August 2013, Vogue Brazil.
Coco Rocha, Vogue, 2006.
Cara Delevinge, Vogue Japan, September 2013.
Jane Fonda, Vogue, 1959.
Vogue Paris, date unknown.
Audrey Hepburn, date unknown.
My uber-talented friend Brooke at a corner store in Brooklyn this weekend.
Finally… me and Winston this weekend on the rooftop bar of The Standard in Manhattan. We’re not *QUITE* like Jennifer Lawrence and her Winston. Maybe next time I’ll wear a giant wool coat and silk shorts.
