TAKE 5: LEOPARD PRINT ICONS

Leopard print a staple in your wardrobe? Us too! But this trend goes way back. From ’50s pin-ups to ’90s music vids, we’re paying homage to the perennial print with our ultimate leopard-loving icons.

1. ELIZABETH TAYLOR

Leopard print first became a ‘thing’ in the 50s, when Dior debuted his printed ‘Jungle’ dress on the catwalk. Cue Elizabeth Taylor rocking leopard spots with everything, even on the beach in this killer one-piece.

2. DEBBIE HARRY

Leopard print gets punk! The Blondie frontwoman was a fierce advocate of wild prints – think skin-tight leotards with her signature red lips and rebel attitude.

3. SHANIA TWAIN

We’re guessing you watched this on repeat when it came out in 1998. Leopard coat, crop top, trousers, platforms AND matching travel case too much? Not for Shania Twain…

4. MEL B

Scary Spice was fiercer than any leopard in the wild – catsuits, bralets and those platform buffalos made her leopard looks iconic.

5. ALEXA CHUNG

Today’s leopard queen? It’s got to be Alexa. Whether it’s mannish tailored coats, lace-up brogues or a Topshop mini – she nails it every time.
