Love Me Some Leopard

Michael Kors RTW Fall 2009
Open up any fashion or design magazine lately and you'll see leopard print is all the rage.  My question is, was leopard print ever out?  I don't think there is another print more well adjusted to luxurious living and from the pictures you'll find below, it's been style maker's favorite for decades.

I told my husband before we married that he must be willing to have at least one room of our home with wall-to-wall leopard print carpet. I still remind him of this about every 6 months and his reply: "Whatever you want, dear."  He knows how to keep a girl happy!

My absolute favorite, Christina Hendricks for London Fog 2010
One word of warning, a little leopard goes a long way, so use with restraint or you could look like this:

 OK, I just threw up a little in my mouth.  I can't leave you with such an atrocious image, so I'll leave you with dreams of Michael Kors...

  1. So I guess this is why Gretchen won Runway this year? Makes me feel good that I have one pair of leopard print peep-toe heels that I don't use in excess! Makes me want you to come to my house and help me out!!!
