  • Brooklyn Decker Works Her Curves in a Leopard Print Dress

    I’ll Have What She’s Having: A chic and sexy take on a classic animal print

    Think of this as a mid season replacement. Not quite spring yet and a bit tired of winter, the leopard body con dress hits just the right spot.

    Brooklyn Decker worked the fall version (we have the runway show photos, right here) of a right-below-the-knee leopard print Dolce & Gabbana dress at the "Just Go With It" premiere and there’s a spring version for you to consider over at Saks.com.

    A touch of the wild side to show off your animal instincts is a classic that is also right on trend.

    Styling ideas…

    If you want to subdue the fierceness, try pairing leopard with a camel coat or jacket and turn the dress into something more work appropriate.

    Tzuj it up with some black lace, as this dress was shown on the Dolce & Gabbana runway with a black lace bra peeping out.

    Or, make the dress pop even more by adding brilliant colored suede pumps in emerald, red, or rich purple like Brooklyn did.

    We know that leopard worn the wrong way can look terribly tacky.

    But, what really makes this dress look elegant rather than a va-va-voom throwaway from Peggy Bundy‘s closet is that the dress is form-fitting but not too tight and the more elegant and refined longer length that counter balances the bold print.

    A softly styled ponytail, simple makeup, and barely there jewelry keep everything looking chic and in check,

    We pulled some leopard print dresses for you to think about:
