Just as there are no hard and fast rules anymore about white shoes and Memorial Day, animal prints like leopard are not just for fall. Paired with white jeans on Bryanboy at Altuzarra, a leopard print coat looks fresh for spring.
A fun moment outside the Etro show in Milan: Chiara Totire takes off from the show in a pastel multicolored fur on a Vespa.
Loved this cute look on Helena Bordon at the Rochas show in Paris. She mixed a leopard print coat with a rock tee, shredded jeans and ladylike heels and bag. Pale jeans that are gently shredded at the front are a good bet for spring 2014.

Loved this black and white look on Cosmo’s Shiona Turini (who is also the world’s most fashionable Bermudian). Black and white prints meet a black and white tweed skirt plus black and white shoes.
Vogue Brazil‘s Christina Pitanguy is quite the glamazon presence on the fashion week scene. At the Tory Burch show in New York, she wore a fur-trimmed black leather jacket with a textured leather black mini and lace-up black boots. Sexy and chic.

It may snow again in New York today. We can’t take any more winter! Therefore I’m going to try to focus on the cheerful colors worn by Indre Rockefeller at the Derek Lam show, where she mixed a cherry red coat with a pink top with sequin flowers. There has got to be spring around here somewhere.
Fringe provided the dramatic accent for many of the guests at Paris fashion week, like this woman at the Dries Van Noten show, who accessorized a pink top with a fur fringe scarf and black hat.
