From a cartoon by Fish depicting 'the moneyed wife' trailing a husband and three lap-dogs in 1916, to David Bailey's photograph of designer Marc Jacobs and Alfred, his English bull terrier, in 2006, Judith Watt presents a superbly illustrated history of dogs in Vogue magazine as they accompanied, and sometimes upstaged, the fashion models and socialites. In one 1980s fashion spread the dogs actually took over the modelling - Paloma Picasso's British brindle bulldog wore the silk taffeta by Christian Lacroix.
