Dirty Looks 

A quick look at Atlanta's fashion sense

Not content being humans, we shroud ourselves in the pelts of sexier beasts lower on the food chain. But being animal is more than a look. It's a lifestyle that suggests you may have the heart of a lion, hooves hidden under your shoes or even retractable claws.

Cee-Lo couldn't coordinate better than this gentleman. Note that his beer can matches his wristband, for chrissake. That slick lady made that fancy abstract-zebra-print dress herself, a stark contrast to your hackneyed thrift store wear. You ain't got no thimble.

Crouching Tiger is explaining to her friend why even white girls look hot in kimono-cut silk shirts. The conversation probably went like this: "For one, you look dainty. But it also looks like you know karate and can kill a man by touching the tip of your pinky to his pupil."

Mid-bachelorette party, these ladies were riding something called the "Fur Bus," presumably on the road to Estrogen Street. Not since Sylvester Stallone's cowboy wear in Rhinestone has the sheen of sequins rivaled a supernova, until now. Thought behind the statement: Men are easily duped by shiny objects.

Some animal prints are inexplicable, such as this mock cheetah/ocelot/Dalmatian pelt. She's pondering the pattern of her shirt while holding her ear to keep her thoughts from falling out into her purse.
