Instagram's Favorite Pup Is The Star Of Karen Walker's New Lookbook

To see and recognize that bold, golden arrow on the side of a pair of sunglasses means you’re part of the Karen Walker club. Her specs have long been cult products, and the only thing that might inspire a bigger wave of fanaticism than the sunglasses themselves are the clever lookbooks she puts forth each season. From tiny tots to the Advanced Style ladies to Kenyan artisans to Karen herself, the lookbooks feature the kind of person you want to be behind those sunglasses: full of spirit, on the brink of laughter, and with really good taste to boot. It’s no wonder that Walker has built up an impressive celebrity clientele, including the likes of Rihanna, Alexa Chung, Gwen Stefani, and Solange. Her most recent famous face might be the most text-a-friend-about-it-worthy one yet: Toast, the dog. 

Toast is a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel with over 149k Instagram followers. That trademark lolling tongue came about after the pup lost her teeth as a result of improper care — she was happily recused from a puppy mill by now owners, publicist Katie Sturino and comedian Josh Ostrovsky, a.k.a. The Fat Jew. Says Walker about the collaboration, “We always love it when celebrities wear our glasses, but it wasn’t until we first saw this season’s star that we thought there was a celebrity who could actually capture the essence of our brand in a campaign.” Responded Toast, "."

The collection features reinventions of Karen Walker classics, but also five new styles including a few fresh, new two-tone frames (don’t worry, those arm arrows are still there). The summer ’15 range will be available in stores starting this February.
