Doggies on Catwalk works its gay flair for charity

Who doesn't love a cute doggie? Pair them with high fashion, celebrity models and some gay flair and you've got the 6th Annual Doggies on the Catwalk.

The event from polyester averse fashion queen E. Vincent Martinez unfolded at the swanky W Buckhead on Friday. There was plenty of gay Atlanta star power, including bigger and better Richie Arpino (top photo right) and Mitchell Anderson. Other Atlanta celebs, including WSB's Justin Farmer and Jovita Moore (top photo left), 11 Alive's Karyn Greer, and gay-loving auctioneer Holly Fifer, also worked the runway with their pups.

For the first time, Doggies benefited the 1873 Society Club, which supports the Atlanta Humane Society. In past years, it's raised funds for the gay-run Pets Are Loving Support.
