Gisele has one. Stephanie Seymour does too. Even Eva Herzigova is in on the act. No, we're not talking bad boyfriends, big bank accounts or pneumatic appendages, but dogs. They're this season's must-have accessory and any supermodel worth her salt has to have one. As long as it's small, fits inside a Louis Vuitton pet carrier and looks as good as Inca (above with mistress, Jodie Kidd) on the runway. Cute.

'This season's accessory is next season's Oxfam - or SPCA, in this case.' Kimberly Lim, student, 19.

'I guess they get lonely and need a friend. It must be bitchy backstage.' Emily Lilias, animal lover, 27.

'That girl looks hungry enough to eat hers. I don't know which one I feel sorrier for.' Stephen Bidie, IT technician, 27.
