Sexy, timeless, and just a little bit dangerous, leopard print has been popular in the fashion world since the turn of the 20th century. This fall, Trashy Diva is excited to bring back one of our favorite flirty prints, now in lightweight rayon crepe de chine! Join us as we take a look back at our favorite leopard lovin’ ladies of the past century.
BETTIE PAGE (1940s-50s)
America’s favorite wartime pinup rocked leopard print regularly, both on various skimpy swimsuits and luxe lingerie pieces. When paired with her famous jet black mane, the look catapulted her to long lasting international fame. Meow!
JANE GREER (1940s-50s)
The “woman with the Mona Lisa smile” was known for her impeccable style and classic good looks. Jane stuns in a sleeved leopard gown similar in looks to our new Bianca Dress!
JAYNE MANSFIELD (1950s-60s)
The Playmate, actress, and Hollywood sex symbol ravishes in an hourglass leopard gown for an event.
RITA HAYWORTH (1940s-60s)
The well-known actress and #1 pinup girl during World War II had a flair for ultra feminine fashion and donned leopard in the most classic ways! Rita looks extra chic here in a leopard blouse and black pants. Get the look yourself with ourAnnie Blouse and black Lounge Pants!
NINA LEEN (1940s-70s)
Nina Leen was a Russian-born American photographer and a constant contributor to Life. She became known for her photographs of animals, which were often published in book form. Here, one of her human subjects dons a leopard top similar in looks to the oh-so-versatile Hottie Top!
ELIZABETH TAYLOR (1940s-2000s)
Undoubtedly one of the most famous women in Hollywood, icon Elizabeth Taylor could wear anything well, especially leopard! Here she amps up a simple swimsuit with the vivacious print.
MONICA VITTI (1950s-70s)
The stunning Italian actress perfectly captures Sicilian sex appeal in a bold leopard-on-leopard ensemble.
DEBBIE HARRY (1980s)
Debbie Harry’s rock ’n’ roll attitude paired perfectly with provocative leopard print, which Blondie’s head diva donned on a regular basis. Leopard print seemed appropriate for the vibe of the ‘80s, which ushered in a rebellious era in music and fashion.
YASMEEN GHAURI (1990s)
‘90s supermodel Yasmeen Ghauri was known for her voluptuous curves and signature wiggle on the runway. This beauty looked phenomenal in a curve-hugging leopard Azzedine Alaia frock similar to the Lena Halter Sarong Dress!
