For Spring 2011, we fell in love with the adorable pup that walked the Mulberry show. Then, we saw Givenchy's Fall 2011 collection featuring wild cat motifs. We're completely on board, but the challenge is to find a way that exhibits our animal-loving spirit, albeit in a chic manner. These totally fierce and very gorgeous animal-inspired accessories from Jenny Bird, Verameat, and Ashley Pittman are our answer. Click to see.

Freja Beha Erichsen alone would have made for a stunning story, but add It-model-of-the-moment Arizona Muse, put Karl Lagerfeld behind the lens, and you have one killer story. It's a gender-bender at that, with Freja looking just as dapper in men's clothes. Click through to see the gorgeous pics.
This week we asked you for a guest editorial, featuring Spring's standout prints. We provided the inspiration, and you provided some fabulous ways to wear the look.

A gorgeous, soft floral-printed frock and a pair of amazing platforms make the standout statement we were hoping for. Congrats imobsessedwith!

Why We Covet: You know that if you wear these, at least ten women, and probably a few men, are going to stop you on the street and ask you where you got these fabulous shoes. They're meant to be checked out. They're meant to get attention. They're meant to make you six feet tall because they have whopping 6-inch wedge heels, but you won't die of discomfort because of the 2.5-inch platform. Beyond that, we love that the leopard is trimmed in bright, sunny yellow and the little knot across the toes.
