Cristobal Balenciaga Used to Dress Up His Cat

A cat wearing pre-fall 2011 Balenciaga. And you thought a celebrity would get to it first? HA.

New York's Queen Sofía Spanish Institute is hosting an exhibit of Cristobal Balenciaga's work, curated by Vogue's Hamish Bowles, an "avid Balenciaga collector." He explained at an event introducing the exhibit last night: "At age 6, Balenciaga cut his first coat. For his cat. The cat kept moving and he got frustrated. Which is, perhaps, why he always thought about movability and comfort in his designs later on." [Style.com]
