Miss Asia Kinney has snagged her first modeling gig and is being featured in a new campaign for Coach. Lady Gaga’s French bulldog (who has taken Gaga’s fiance Taylor Kinney’s last name) shows off a purple leather Coach handbag while wearing a beautiful collar and being held by an unidentified woman.
The adorable dog is taking part in Coach’s Coach Pups campaign, which will feature the Edie and Rucksack bags from the Fall 2015 collection. Instead of paying Miss Asia the usual sum for such a job, Coach will be making a donation to the Chicago French Bulldog Rescue on behalf of Miss Asia. The campaign was shot by fashion photographer Steven Meisel.
I am so proud of Miss Asia! Gaga said in a statement. She’s a natural in front of the camera. I really love getting to watch my best friend be a star.
I’ve never had so much fun on a shoot, said Coach’s creative director, Stuart Vevers. The combination of Mr. Meisel and the pups was an extraordinary, surreal, special moment. We wanted to create playful images that make you smile.
This isn’t Miss Asia’s first gig as an international model. She first appeared on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar with her famous mom last year.
