Posing on the red carpet is an art, and most of the rich and fabulous have already mastered select “looks” that they know accentuate their best features.
Because these stances are done hundreds of times per year, its tough to teach old dogs new tricks. Or to put it another way, you can’t teach socialites how to react to having old dogs shoved at them as props. (Because let’s be honest, there’s very few ways to look elegant when holding someone else’s baby or pet on the red carpet.)
That’s why it’s always fun to check out how the glitterati handle events like this weekend’s Humane Society of New York party, hosted by law firm Smith Vallerie LLP (last seen suing Governor Cuomo for trying to initiate a Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative). Watch as the beautiful people try to grin and bear it while holding a shedding animal as far away as possible to their Versace dress.
