Designers have been thinking way out of the box this Milan Fashion Week. At Moschino, Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, and Kaia Gerber did their best Jackie O impressions in over-the-top bouffant bob wigs and glamorous ’60s-inspired evening wear. Meanwhile, over on the Gucci runway, models had all-seeing third eyes attached to their foreheads and, in a very normal and not at all creepy twist, some carried exact replicas of their own heads instead of handbags. Italian fashion brand Tod’s also took an unconventional approach this season, arming an army of supermodels with live puppies instead of severed heads.

Gigi Hadid was one of the lucky models who carried a French bulldog down the runway; she paired the pooch with a multilayered look comprised of two cozy shearling coats, baggy leather pants, suede boots, and a large leather tote. (As Marie Claire notes, Hadid has considerable experience toting around a Frenchie, as she’s often been spotted carrying boyfriend Zayn Malik’s pup around New York.) The other models lucky enough to double as pet sitters at Friday’s show were equally bundled up, pairing tiny chihuahuas and docile Cavalier King Charles Spaniels with their own suede-, leather-, and knitwear-filled ensembles.
