From the Barn to ‘Vogue’: Farm Animals Are All the Rage

We'll never forget one of our favorite Vogue spreads some years back that was peppered with lots of fluffy cats. They were elegant, impeccably groomed Vogue cats, of course, and their haute couture posing at once redefined "cute" and "fabulous." It's nice to see the magazines are still keen on mammals, and pretty amazing (in a good way) that in 2008 they're so keen on the barnyard-dwelling variety. On the left Burberry designer Christopher Bailey re-creates one of British Esquire's iconic covers with a furry pig in the June issue. In the middle Nicole Kidman wrangles cows in the July issue of American Vogue. And on the right Agyness Deyn plays piano for a pink piglet in the August British Vogue. What a Babe.
