There is a fallacy that if animal print = sexy, then more animal print = really sexy! In my opinion, however, imitating a large jungle cat, a zebra, or a giraffe is more than a little overdone. A bit of leopard–sexy. So much leopard that Masai warriors give chase–not sexy.
Let’s look at some celebrity examples.
Let’s start with Paz de la Heurta. This actress dresses koo koo krazy at the best of times. She has a nutty fashion sense. Here she takes it a step further with two different size animal prints. But the shape isn’t bad, and it kind of goes with her hair, despite the overwhelming pattern.
Oh, AnnaLynne McCord. Another fashion disaster in the best of times. She is dual fugging–both too short, too tight, and animal print. I don’t think the dress could get much tinier.
Eva Mendes is obviously mad for animal print. MAD, I say! She’s a repeat offender.
Even the trendsetter Victoria Beckham is guilty. And also guilty of dual fug. And really scary hair.
Nail in the coffin: Paris Hilton. PARIS HILTON. WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU WEARING, PARIS HILTON?!?
There are no words.
If you’re going to go with the animal print, choose just a subtle bit–not head-to-toe. A sexy shoe, like this one from Pelle Moda Issa would work nicely.
