So, Girls star Adam Driver is draping a sheep over his shoulders in the September issue of Vogue... in case you need another reason to pick up a copy. In theory, sure, it’s kind of weird to open the premiere issue of a fashion magazine to find Hannah Horvath’s peculiar maybe-boyfriend (if the Girls season 3 promo indicates anything…) photographed by Annie Lebovitz in Ireland in his ever-shirtless state, holding an animal, with Daria Werbowy casually lounging off to the side… BUT, he looks good. Props, Grace Coddington.
While we ogled Mr. Driver in all his virile glory, we had a thought: Are celebrities holding animals one of those editorial tropes that seem to go unnoticed until someone makes a dedicated Tumblr (much like women laughing alone while eating salad) and the whole thing takes off across the web? The answer, we think, is yes. We rounded up the best of the best. And really, what’s not to like about beautiful people holding beautiful animals?
