If there's anything fashion princess Dylan Lauren loves more than candy, it's animals. Last weekend, in an effort to raise awareness for adoption, Dylan's Candy Bar hosted a chic dog rescue event in Union Square, filled with adorable pups looking for homes as well as some very stylish A-listers. Dylan herself was joined by Lindsay Ellingson, Hailey Clauson, and the Instagram-famous pooch, @toastmeetsworld, in hosting the fundraiser in support of Dylan's Candy BarN, an animal-saving initiative. Jason Biggs, Ashley Smith, and Katie Sturino also turned up to get down with the dogs. We spoke to Dylan beforehand to learn all about it.
