At any other event, it would be rude to call a bride mousy. But not at designer Ada Nieves’s fashion show, where a team of rodent models showed off her froufrou creations for rat enthusiasts.
A demure rat named Lily (above) donned a couture wedding dress, while others wore frilly concoctions tailor-made for their tiny frames.
“The rats look very cute and seem to like wearing them,” Nieves told the Daily Mail. “Rats are very popular these days and the owners love to dress them up.”
We hope she’s working on a Duchess Catherine knock-off!
