The "Paws for Style" pet fashion show last night was an Animal Fair–sponsored benefit for the Humane Society of New York. But it also, inadvertently, turned into a great showcase for Bachelor alum Prince Lorenzo Borghese's line of bath and body products for pets, Royal Treatment. "I bathed him in white-chocolate puppy shampoo," Borghese told us proudly of his mutt, James Bond, as the pair arrived to model together. The red carpet was outdoors, in the rain, without a tent, and celebs, their pets, and the party reporters who love them were getting thoroughly soaked. But James — sopping-wet James — smelled lovely. Cheyenne Jackson, before the rain forced him inside, confided that he and his pooch, Zora, are surprisingly close. "When I come home from the gym," the actor said, "I always give her a little bit of my protein shake out of my mouth." Richard Belzer loves his dog, too, but not quite that much. "I kiss his stomach every night before he goes to bed," the sunglassed actor admitted. But he draws the line at sharing food. —Bennett Marcus
