Putting animals on a fashion runway has its risks. Creatures can escape their handlers, get stage fright—and even pause to relieve themselves.
All of the above happened when Moncler Gamme Rouge staged an arctic odyssey to remember in Paris, casting five different Husky breeds to accompany models dressed in Nanook of the North furs. No matter: It was a charming, transporting show, and the dogs were arresting with their piercing eyes and full coats. One who got off the leash disappeared under the benches; another skulked along the fringes of the set, giving those in the front row a petting opportunity.
