At last night's annual ASPCA Bergh Ball at the Plaza, Dylan Lauren explained that her family pets will play important roles in her upcoming wedding to hedge funder Paul Arrouet. "My flower girl and ring bearer are our family pets," she said. "They’re dressed in Ralph Lauren couture ... One dog is a man, so he’ll be in black tie, and the female, Bikini dog — her name’s Bikini, she won’t be wearing a bikini — will be in a very beautiful sort of neckpiece. Very elegant!"

Nearby, Isaac Mizrahi bemoaned his recent lack of inspiration for dog clothing. "I used to [make clothes for my dogs] all the time. I haven’t in a while because I haven’t been visited by any kind of canine muses," he said. He owns two dogs, a beagle mix and a collie mix, the latter of whom is apparently multilingual. "He’s incredibly smart. He speaks all kind of languages. You can talk to him in any language and he understands you. It’s crazy. You can talk to him in like, Szechuan dialect, and he knows exactly what you’re talking about." Really? "Yeah. It’s crazy. I don’t know how he got so multilingual."
