James Middleton’s Red Carpet Date Stole the Show at the ‘GQ’ Awards (Spoiler Alert: He Brought His Dog)

Picture this: You’ve just been invited to attend the GQ Men of the Year Awards in London. You get to bring a plus-one. Who do you invite to tag along? Your significant other, mom or BFF are all great options. But if you’re James Middleton, there's only one option: You bring your dog.

We’re not kidding. The 32-year-old stepped onto the red carpet Tuesday accompanied by his furry companion Ella.

And although the brother of Kate and Pippa Middleton looked incredibly handsome in his burgundy velvet jacket and black bowtie, it was clearly his cocker spaniel who stole the show.

Now that’s what we call making an entrance.

Later in the evening, Middleton shared a slideshow of snaps from the event. (Peep Ella rocking a UK's Pets as Therapy charity tartan kilt).

"I think I should win the award for the best date for the GQ men of the year awards," he captioned the post. We totally agree.

James, if you’re reading this, next time can you also bring your other pups Inca, Luna, Zulu and Mabel along?
