Dress of the week - Zebra print by Nina Ricci 1962

Today instead of fashion from the 1930s, a look from a little later on - the 1960s.  This dress by Nina Ricci featured in Vogue, September 1962.

It's so breakfast at Tiffany's, don't you think?

Fifty years later, zebra stripes are again hitting the catwalk, with Robert Cavelli's 60s inspired African and animal print fall collection in 2012.  Here's one of the evening dresses from the collection, a zebra-printed jersey dress. Jennifer Hudson wore one at a 4th of July concert last year.

Micheal Kors also used zebra print in his Spring 2012 collection.

This year  Giambattista Valli's Spring 2013 Couture collection featured a zebra print dress with a tulle black skirt draping from the peplum-like detail.  That's actress Zhang Ziyi onthe red carpet on the right.

What do you think - would you wear a zebra print dress? If I could get that Cavelli dress in my size, I's think seriously about it!
