Shot at Giraffe Manor in Kenya, Alana Zimmer (who you may recognize from America’s Next Top Model) takes the cover of the United Kingdom’s March 2014 Harper’s Bazaar. Photographed by Liz Collins and styled by Leith Clark, this “Prints Charming” shoot really expresses just that! The gorgeous giraffe that makes it’s way into many of the shots isn’t the only exotic print you see in this shoot. This season’s bold trend is tastefully displayed with a seemingly infinite list of designers creations (Etro, Fendi, Hermes, Valentino, Donna Karen, Celine to name a few). Bright colors are also making a statement. Pops of pinks, reds, and yellows feature throughout the shoot. No wallflowers here!
The best way to rock an animal print is by toning the look down with a solid color. You can do this with your shoe choice or with a hat to balance your entire look out.
