Rihanna knows how to combine animal prints for a wild look

Animal printin its numerous forms – is this season's favorite motif and  Rihanna  has already fallen under its spell. At the presentation of her biography – titled Rihanna – at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the singer donned an asymmetric leopard print mini dress with knee-high snakeskin print boots – both by  Saint Laurent. 

The asymmetric fitted midi dress emphasized her figure to the max, and the combination of animal prints was a winner. It was an outfit that has inspired us to bring out our "wild" side too....
