Canine couture is now on display at the AKC’s Museum of the Dog in New York after more then two dozen dogs donned Met Gala-inspired fashions and walked the red carpet for the second annual Pet Gala.

Fashion designer Anthony Rubio’s second annual fundraiser at the museum featured dogs donning duds inspired by the Met Gala looks sported by celebrities including Gigi HadidZendaya, Lil Nas X, Ed SheeranShakiraGayle King and more.

For The Pet Gala, I have to figure out how to translate garments worn by humans onto our four-legged stars. Humans can suffer for their fashion, but dogs will not. Their comfort and safety is my top priority. It’s a challenge I’m always up for. I thrive under the pressure,” Rubio said on the museum’s website.

He said the purpose of the event is simple.

“I do this to make everybody happy, because this world right now, in the state that we’re in, there’s too many bad things happening,” Rubio told The Hollywood Reporter. “Everything’s negative, there’s clouds over everybody’s heads. Everybody’s angry. So I do this to elevate happiness and to bring some light into the world.”
