A true "It" Girl has an array of accessories: designer shades, Louboutins, a Chanel bag (or 20) and, of course, a sprinkling of diamonds, just to name a few.
But if diamonds are a girl's best friend, tail-wagging pups are a very close runner-up. As the "It" Girl grabs her coffee, jets through the airport or enjoys a stroll during some rare downtime, you'll often see a leash in the hand that is not holding the very expensive handbag in the other.
Last year, Ashley Olsen adopted an adorable French Bulldog, which just so happens to be one of my favorite breeds. (Those irresistible faces get me squealing every time.) She has been spotted toting her furry friend around ever since, including yesterday as she stepped out of her NYC hotel.
Following is an ode to some of my other favorite "It" Girls and their lovable doggies.
