Abercrombie Features Canine Stars On The Rise (And Scantily Clad Human Stars Too!)

Ahhhhh, Abercrombie & Fitch. Loud music, the stench of cologne, hairless employees who make you question how committed you are to your relationship. It’s the stuff young adult dreams are made of.

Nowadays however, I’m much more intrigued by the short and hairless models in Abercrombie’s latest campaign.  A&F’s Stars on the Rise is an annual back-to-school campaign shot by famed photographer Bruce Weber, the alumni of which include now-household-names like Jennifer Lawrence, Heidi Klum, Kellan Lutz, Channing Tatum, Emma Roberts, Nikki Reed, Michelle Trachtenberg and Penn Badgley.

This time around, in addition to up-and-comers Jacob Artist (Glee), Emayatzy Corinealdi (Middle of Nowhere), Scott Eastwood (Texas Chainsaw 3D), Johnny Ferro (Children of God), James Frecheville (Adore), Taylor Handley (Chasing Mavericks), Ashley Hinshaw (Chronicle), Alex Kaluzhsky (The Taking of Pelham 123), Alexander Ludwig (Vikings), Lily Rabe (American Horror Story), and Halston Sage (Grown Ups 2) the clever folks at A&F included Hollywood’s biggest CANINE stars as well. Which pooches made the cut? Click through the slideshow to find out.
