So, the last time I illustrated the Russians’ love of leopard-print clothing, this blog doubled its daily site views record — and that new benchmark hasn’t been breached since. Should we make a valiant attempt to set a new one? I even threw in some other animal prints, to mix it up a bit! This post has not one but TWO leopard-print jumpsuits; mixed animals in one outfit AND one garment; matching leopard top and bottom; two kitten motifs in one outfit, zebra-print top accessorized with striped bag with an actual zebra picture; leopard mixed with bright colors and other prints in the same garment; bedazzled leopard; leopard culottes, skirts, pants, tops, dresses and accessories; head-to-toe tiger print; leopard garments mixed with garments in other, clashing prints; and several people sporting animal prints, including leopard, in a single shot. Have we reached Peak Leopard? Not in Russia.
