The Duchess of Windsor wearing Mainbocher and accompanied by a greyhound by Cecil Beaton American Vogue, June 1937
In 1930, Vogue proclaimed, "The next best thing to having the world at your feet is to have a dog at your heels." Now, author Judith Watt sifts through the Vogue archives of the last century and discovers how dogs reflect and complement women's changing lives as their place in the world evolves. Her book Dogs in Vogue: A Century of Canine Chic comes out next week. The photos are fantastic but the story they tell is even better: The reasons may change, but for women, dogs have always been in vogue.
