Kristen Stewart, Kim Kardashian And 53 More Celebrities In Animal Print (PHOTOS)

The old adage is "A leopard can't change its spots," and it's never been more appropriate. The animal print trend has been in style for so long now that it's less of a trend, and more of a rule. There was a brief moment in the '80s where the pattern was considered déclassé, but that time has definitely passed.

We're not biased when it comes to the patterns: Bengal tiger stripes had a brief stint on the fashion scene last year, as have black and white Dalmation spots. But in this case, the king of the style jungle is definitely the leopard; it rules supreme.

Celebrities love animal print, especially the first family of reality TV, the Kardashians. It's rare that we see the girls out without at least one animal print item or accessory.

Take a cue from the fabulous fam and only wear one piece of animal print at a time--the rest of your look should be simple and neutral. Whatever you do, avoid pulling a Snooki: The "Jersey Shore" star layers animal prints of various shapes and colors, and the result is cartoonish.

Here, 55 stars in animal print, plus a few shoppable options.
