Earning a woof of approval! Maria Menounos threw her dog Baby a Sweet 16 birthday party on Sunday, July 10, while wearing the most summery A-line skirt. The E! host, 38, modeled the hot-pink, floral-print Rose Crista Skirt from Kate Spade New York’s Madison Ave. Collection ($548, katespade.com). (It also comes in a black-and-white rose print.) Menounos teamed the ultra-femme piece with a sleeveless white crop top, metallic sandals, Fitbit Alta and a wide-brimmed black hat.
Even sweeter than her daytime ensemble? The cause behind the puppy bash. Menounos hosted the event to help raise awareness for Wags & Walks, a dog rescue in Los Angeles that saves family-friendly pups from kill shelters.

“Baby’s sweet sixteen party was so much fun!” the EveryGirl’s Guide author wrote, captioning a photo of herself and her fiancé, Keven Undergaro, with their three dogs and a big birthday cake. “Dog lovers and their pups everywhere — my heaven! And @wagsandwalks got homes for the rescue pups!! Success!! 🐩🐶🎂❤️”
Three weeks earlier, Menounos, who accepted a proposal from Undergaro in March after 18 years together, celebrated Baby’s official 16th birthday by posting a pic of her on her very first birthday. The fur mom wrote, “After almost losing her recently I’m so grateful we get to celebrate her today! And in a few weeks I’m throwing her the most epic sweet sixteen-bc why not?! She was my first baby-I dreamed of having a dog my whole life-dreams come true! 🎂❤️”
In addition to the many posts Menounos shares about her own furry brood, the occasional wrestler also updates fans with news about pets available through Wags & Walks, from a boxer/pit mix named Sweet Pea to a scruffy Jack Russell terrier named Zane.
