As fellow models strutted their stuff at New York Fashion Week, the 33-year-old blonde used the pavements of Brighton as a runway, walking several dogs to promote a new campaign which named the seaside town as the most dog-friendly place in the UK.

‘At one point I had seven dogs! They're my bestest, bestest friends,’ she said in a recent interview with Digital Spy.
‘I love and adore my dogs. I know how horrible it is when you have to go out and you've got to leave the dogs in the car or at home.
‘It's a lovely idea so that people can spend time with their dogs… the campaign was such a huge success that we're looking to find the most dog-friendly town, village or city.'
