One bright spot in a week horribly short of them: it’s a good time to be a dog. On Wednesday, Bloomberg reported that New York City shelters were running out of dogs (and cats!), so pressing was the city’s desire to make furry friends while quarantining.
But the bond between man and beast predated the pandemic, and will outlive it, too. So when we realized that self-isolating celebrities would lead to a dearth of #BigFitoftheDay-grade paparazzi photos, we decided to alter our plans. As you might have seen on GQ’s Instagram this week, the #BigFitoftheDay is going archival, and taking on a weekly theme. This week’s? You guessed it: famous folks looking great while walking the dog.
See below for our picks this week—and stay tuned for a new theme for the #BigFitoftheDay starting Monday.
The Weeknd and Pup, 2018
In 2020, The Weeknd has a brand-new album set to hit #1 on the Billboard chart. He’s got a sweet afro, and a nice little mustache. And he’s got a big role in Uncut Gems under his belt. But on this day in 2018, he had a nice fade, an all-black uniform, and a capable companion by his side. It’s good to be the Weeknd right now—but it wasn’t bad two years ago, either.
Barack Obama and Bo, 2012
The year 2012 was a really, really long time ago, wasn’t it? Here’s to a nicer time.
Mariah Carey and Jack, 1999
The dog! The hair! The jeans with the waistband…somehow removed! The boombox! This was the perfect late-summer day in New York City. And by golly, we’re gonna get back there, soon. Us, Mariah, and Jack.
Justin Theroux and Kuma, 2019
A good reminder: if socially-distanced walks are what’s getting you out of the house, you can do better than ratty sweats and Uggs. (Though, by all means, feel free to wear ratty sweats and Uggs. There’s nothing better.) If you’re feeling spicy, go the Theroux route and start dressing up. A blazer and Chelsea boots to walk the dog. A tuxedo to watch Tiger King. A turtleneck to cook a pot of beans. You can do it!
Jack Nicholson, 2002
Whenever things feel dark, think of Jack Nicholson on the set of Anger Management in 2002, wearing a printed shirt and white Velcro shoes, hanging out with a kid (a relative?) in an Allen Iverson-branded jersey and a sweet little pooch. They all hope you have a nice weekend.
