Glamour Dogs -- An enchanting Afghan, a captivating Chihuahua, a pretentious poodle, a magnificent mastiff and a charming French bulldog -- these are just a few of this season's gorgeous glamour dogs. Catherine Ledner brilliantly captures these doggie doyenes in all their glamorous glory as they strut their stuff on the catwalk, recline on sumptuous furniture, and pose on the latest of floor and wall fashions, and proves that, in the words of Bill Blass, "style is a matter of instinct."
Catherine Ledner has had a lifelong love of animals. Her work has appeared in numerous publications including "Travel + Leisure," "Dwell," and the "New York Times Magazine."
