It had to happen. So it has.
You know how all those expensive gowns worn to the Oscars get ripped off for mainstream prom and party dress markets? Now Oscar fashion has gone to the dogs. Yes, you can now dress your precious puppy in a mock couture gown like the ones worn by Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz and Jennifer Lopez to the 2007 Academy Awards.
Little Lily, an LA-based pet clothing company, offers: the Jennifer – a puppy-sized imitation of her Grecian-inspired Oscar gown by Marchesa and the Nicole, a bright red one-shouldered number that looks like Nic’s Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquiere silk crepe gown (with a big bow sure to annoy your dog the same way it annoyed fashion critics). There’s also the Penelope, a faux Atelier Versace empire waist satin gown and the Reese, a canine copy of her purple Olivier Theyskens for Nina Ricci gown. For boy dogs, there ‘s the Leo, like DiCaprio’s Armani tuxedo. I’m serious.
Little Lily is taking orders from retailers now for delivery in April. For the complete Red Carpet Collection, check out the authorized retailer Funny.Fur’s blog at laladoggy.com. Or go to this site to see the complete collection.
Read more about the company’s creators/designers Lara Alameddine and Daniel Dubiecki in Entrepreneur magazine. According to People, Lopez has already gotten a mutt Marchesa for her Chihuahua. What’s next? An Oscar statue squeaky toy? Please train your dog to keep her acceptance speech short and sweet.
