A selection of adorable photographs show 800 chihuahuas strutting their stuff on the red carpet at a hilarious doggie beauty pageant.
The pint-sized pooches, from all over the UK, donned fancy 'designer' outfits as they competed for top spot as Britain's Most Beautiful Chihuahua.
And it was Twiglet, wearing a full-body pink pom-pom, who stole the show to be crowned 'Miss Chihuahua Town'.
Meanwhile, Chiweenie Beanie - a chihuahua-dachshund cross - won the top prize in the fancy dress category for her party hat, multi-coloured wig and sunglasses combination.
More than 800 people and dogs attended the weekend's chihuahua-only event in Yardley Gobion, Northants, which was organised by Kerry Brooks, who runs events for all breeds, under her 'DogTown' brand.

Other activities at the event included a cheese run challenge, where the dogs sprint as fast as they can down a lane, eating pieces of cheese lined up along the route.
