NEW YORK, June 23 (UPI) -- Lady Gaga's dog stars in a new Coach campaign.

The 29-year-old singer shared an ad featuring her one-year-old French bulldog, Asia Kinney, on Instagram. Photographer Steven Meisel shot portraits of Asia and other famous pets for the handbag company's "Coach Pups" campaign.

"I am so proud to announce that @missasiakinney is the face and star of COACH this season!" Lady Gaga wrote. "I'm so proud of Miss Asia. She's a natural in front of the camera. I really love getting to watch my best friend be a star," she added in a statement.

"We wanted to create playful images that make you smile," creative director Stuart Vevers said. "We were inspired by some images from the Coach archive, which featured Eddie -- the dog that starred in the TV series Fraiser -- to create something joyful, with humor and character."

Asia modeled the Edie and Rucksack bags in the ads, which will debut in print and online in July. The famous pup was born in February 2014, and has her own account on Instagram. Lady Gaga often posts pictures of her dog on the photo sharing site.
