What’s Right Meow: Meet Our InStyle Editor’s Fashionable Cat, Randy

This week we’re introducing the world to InStyle Senior Style Editor Ali Pew’s dapper cat, Randy: a blue-eyed Ragdoll with a cool, mellow personality.

Named after baseball Hall of Famer Randy Johnson, the four-legged fur ball has been with Pew for the past five years and was adopted from a breeder in Utah by Pew’s husband, footwear designer Oliver Clark.

Sure, he’s clearly adorable, but he’s more than just a pretty face: he’s also a professional model. Yes, that’s right–Randy, the model cat. In 2012, he posed for fashion label United Bamboo for consideration of their annual cat calendar and sported a cute all-black ensemble for the occasion (above). The frock featured a statement bow on the back as well as sheer lace accents near the hemline and on the sleeves.

“After the shoot, my husband and I were interviewed about Randy and it felt very Best in Show. We were like stage parents,” Pew says. “Now we take pictures of him all the time. He’s used to having bright lights in his face!”

Randy also modeled for the “Animal Attraction” fashion feature in the April 2012 issue of Dazed and Confused (above). Behind the scenes, he was a pro working the camera due to a characteristic common among Ragdoll cats of being relaxed even in unfamiliar settings. As a result, the photo shoot was a breeze for the feline who could strike practically any pose. While he did look lovely alongside haute cat-ure clothing, he usually just enjoys being in his fur and natural element.

And worldly as he is, he’s ready for any trips that may come up thanks to a pawesome fake license (below) made by Clark, who draws design inspiration from his pet muse.

Can you say cuteness overload? We can’t wait to see what his next campaign entails.

What’s Inspiring BCBG’s Lubov Azria? Add The Whitney To Your Must-See List

Chandeliers constructed out of monochromatic goblets and a portrait of Kermit the Frog were just a few of the things that completely dazzled us at last night’s opening for the Whitney Museum 2014 Biennial. And there to help guide us through it was BCBG Max Azria‘s Chief Creative Officer Lubov Azria, who added some of her own texture and color to the scene with a midi-dress from her pre-fall collection and a bold red lip.

“Art and Fashion are one entity, they are deeply tied to self-expression,” she told us of BCBG’s decision to sponsor this year’s exhibition. “The Biennial is very much like fashion week for the Whitney, but what I love most is that this place never plays it safe.” Among the 103 artists who left an impression? “Terry Adkins—he created these beautiful metal discs that protrude from the wall.” So go ahead, wander through each strikingly distinct nook and find your statement piece now through May 25!
