The late Alexander McQueen famously left his three beloved dogs the extremely generous (though probably under-appreciated) postmortem gift of £50,000. And while it’s safe to say that not all designers would go so far as to supply their pets with a year’s salary, it’s clear that their animal friends hold a dear place in their hearts. Earlier today, Roberto Cavalli tweeted a picture of his newest feathered addition– a pet bird, not a fluffy coat. Jason Wu’s cats have inspired his designs. Victoria Beckham’s bulldog made headlines for her fancy manicures, and Tom Ford’s pooches landed the roles of a lifetime (in dog years, of course) in an Oscar nominated film.
Take a look at some of fashion’s most privileged pooches, pussies, and parrots– If only some of that Bush’s Baked Beans magic would rub off on some of these petties!
