However, my love of leopard print came long before the Kardashians made it acceptable as a day-to-day print. It came from Madonna, who in an early 90s interview on Nickelodeon, cited “leopard print” as her favorite color.

Wear your leopard print bravely forever. It will, unlike giraffe and zebra print, never be out of style.
