Karen LeFrak will be celebrating the publication of her new children’s book, Best in Show, at Ralph Lauren’s gorgeous new limestone mansion, 888 Madison, home to the Glamour of Women and Home Collection, on Monday, March 7, from 6-8pm. The book features beautiful illustrations by Andrew Day enhancing the wonderful tale (no pun intended) about showing and breeding champion poodles! Karen breeds and shows champion poodles, including two-time Westminster Non-Sporting Group winner Ch Ale Kai Mikimoto on Fifth, better known as Miki. Karen is donating her proceeds from the sales of Best in Show to the American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation and Take the Lead. With a touch of spring in the air, we picked a paler palette and found these neutral knit dresses from Ralph Lauren. If you find yourself questioning what size to order, we find that when buying knits it is best to order one size up and have the dresses taken in, rather than have a clingy dress. We polished off our look with leather accessories and a crocodile bag to carry your pooch in style complete with a doggy trench-coat to match! We promise you that you and your four-legged friend will win best in show with this look.
