Fashion - A wild touch

Literal connotations of being wild, it is no surprise that leopard print - we repeat, print; never evil fur - is a favorite with Hollywood sexpots such as Eva Mendes and Jennifer Lopez.

It’s not just for the ladies who ladle on the va-va-voom - celebrities not typically known for their pouts, such as Maggie Gyllenhaal and Alexa Chung, enjoy their spots, too. Closer to home, the anti-bombshell actress Rui En once told us that her biggest shopping weakness was ,anything leopard print.

In the world of recent  fashion, animal print is practically a staple - right up there with a black wardrobe and a vaguely judgmental visage - and it's in the attention once again in a major way this season.
At Dolce & Gabbana, '50s primness and unadulterated sex came together in a leopard-print, body-skimming dress with a pencil silhouette and ended just over the knees.

At Hermes, a leather blazer was thrown over a belted, high-necked, leopard-print dress to create an of-the-moment take on its Victorian-inspired fall looks.Creating an surprising and very directional look for fall, Dries Van Noten united leopard print with another major fall trend: Military. Mixing an animal-print scarf with olive trousers, or a leopard-print vest with a knee-length olive skirt, the designer showed that animal print can look just as formidable in the urban jungle.
