#GoodNews: There Was Pet A Gala This Week
And it was all kinds of fabulous!
Art Girls Jungle 10 May 2020

The first Monday of May has been and gone this year, and all of us fashionistas shed a silent tear as we were unable to take part in our annual red carpet stalking as the A-list arrived to climb the steps of New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art for the annual Met Gala. For the uninitiated, every year (sans coronavirus) a fabulous fashion gala takes place on the first Monday of May at the Costume Institute at the Met. For obvious reasons, fashion’s biggest night out didn’t happen this year so, to cheer us up, James Corden threw his own unique version of the event (which you can watch on YouTube), which put pets at centre stage of the party. The Late Late Show’s Pet Gala saw pets dress up in this year’s theme of About Time, with pet-owners across the globe sending in some pretty fabulous videos of their animals parading down the red carpet in their respective homes.

Joined by celebrity stylist (and E! Red carpet host) Brad Goreski, Corden introduced us to bunnies in tiaras, guinea pigs in tutus and dogs in pearls. With each pet inspired by fashions of the past and future, the globe’s most fashionable animals donned wigs, petticoats and even arrived in their own cars, inspiring all of us to give our pooches (and any other animals) a little makeover.

As Corden said (and we agree), each pet looked paws-atively stunning. With highlights including the arrival of Brutus in a ballgown type number, and Phillip Arthur Norrington in a tux, we were completely blown away. Secretly, we’re all hoping that the Pet-Gala will become an annual event. I mean, why should humans have all the fun?!
