The celebrity and style icon pet owners whose style we envy
By Stefanie Gibson
Dog walking is an activity, that for most of us, is best achieved in some comfortable clothes. Needless to say, it’s not always our best look. Unlike us mere mortals, for celebs, hanging with their pooches (and one kitty) gives them a chance to ramp up the fab factor. These ten stars never miss an opportunity to leave their mark on the fashion world and we never miss an opportunity to see what they’re wearing, and, more importantly, who they’re walking with.

Each year, Kate Bosworth turns out insanely chic red carpet looks, and this year’s Met Gala was no exception. But even when she’s in her more relaxed no makeup mode at home with her two pups, she effortlessly makes simple separates look glam. They say happiness is the best cosmetic, and judging by the way Happy (yes that’s the name of one of her dogs) makes her glow, we tend to agree!
