Designers such as Valentino, Dior, Givenchy and others took inspiration from the animal kingdom during last week's Haute Couture Spring 2011 shows. From Givenchy's bison-inspired headdresses to Christian Dior's corvid-mimicking gowns and masks, there was no shortage of wild designs on the catwalk.

Avian, aquatic, reptilian and wild animal fashions gave a glimpse of "spring fever," with some of the most stunning of these animal-inspired fashions including Valentino's interpretation of the jellyfish and Dior's elegant ostrich dress.

Implications - The best part about haute couture week in Paris is that it serves as a celebration of art at its most bare, minimalist form: handcrafting products, high quality fabrics, and top notch materials. With the Spring 2011 couture season just coming to a close, the animal kingdom reigns supreme in the fashion world yet again.
