A cat on the catwalk!


Haute couture heads definitely turned last week when a playful, gray-and-white cat suddenly sauntered onto the catwalk at the Vakko ESMOD International fashion show in Istanbul. In a viral video, posted on Instagram, the feline fashionista lazily rolls around, licks itself and occasionally swipes a paw at the models as they sashay by. “Everybody was in shock,” fashion designer Goksen Hakki Ali, whose clothes were being shown, said in an interview. Show organizers believe the cat wandered in from outdoors – Istanbul is known for its stray cats – but it seemed right at home on the runway.
