Yesterday marked one of the major events on the canine social calendar: Animal Fair Media's 9th Annual Paws for Style fashion show, at Arena in New York. Per usual, dogs and celebrities paraded in luxe threads for the benefit of less-coddled animals, via the ASPCA. Dogs, plus Lauren Conrad, Richard Belzer, Ramona Singer, Nikki Blonsky and Robert Verdi, after the jump.

This dog draws sartorial inspiration from WonderDog, clearly influenced by The Costume Institute's retrospective of superheroes.

Nikki Blonsky's date seems to be channeling the ghost of Jacob Marley.

A knotted silk scarf is always in good taste. One hopes, Hermes.

This dog, with Miss Teen USA Hilary Cruz, is - how shall I put this? - demode.

Richard Belzer's dog phones it in.

Cornelia Guest should be ashamed - swathed in jewels while her dog goes nude.

In the case of Maria Kanellis's dog, I believe the nudity is more a case of rank exhibitionism.
