Taking us deep into the world of the dog fashion scene and doggie beauty pageants, Amy Lombard’s dog photo series is both fascinating and absurd.
 
As a dog owner, I find this beautifying of dogs to be unfair but as this ‘Doggies & Tiaras’ dog photo series show, there are those who love to pamper their pooches to perfection.

Showing us the odd culture of people and their pets, Lombard’s series document the first annual ‘NYC Doggies & Tiaras’ Pageant.

"There, at the first annual NYC Doggies & Tiaras Pageant, cake-faced humans flaunted their long-suffering dogs in three categories: activewear, talent, and glamour," says the New York Magazine’s The Cut editorial. 

So if you’re into glamorous doggie divas, make sure you make it next year.
