We’re seeing a trend – celebrities wearing leopard-printed bags, from totes to crossbody purses, top handles, and even luggage.

We have previously seen both Kate Bosworth and Jessica Simpson toting leopard print bags. Alexa Chung and Elle MacPherson are also fans:

We love Elle McPherson’s bag and whole look. It’s so effortlessly stylish. What do you think?

But I guess I was wrong. It looks like the end of our ferocious friend will NOT be anytime soon because celebrities are still quite in love with it.

Well, what do you think? Does seeing these celebrities with printed purses re-ignite your interest in animal-patterned bags? Because I think that’s what it is doing to me.

Kourtney’s bag makes us want the Christian Louboutin Sweet Charity shoulder bag in leopard print. It retails for a whopping $1,995:
