Estonian-born model Karmen Pedaru sports a tiger-inspired mane for the Numero February 2010 issue. The 20-year-old brunette shows off khaki structured jackets paired with barely-there underwear and plenty of leg. Animal prints and tribal patterns are shown in short minis, high-waisted skirts and button-downs. Pedaru also sports wrists full of thick chunky bangles. It's all about the accessories, ladies!
Implications - Today's modern women is more independent and successful than at any other point in modern history, and the result is that consumers are increasingly eager to see advertisements and art that celebrates this triumphant fact. Collections like this highlight society's increasing acceptance of fierce and unfettered feminine figures and this is one trend that any company marketing towards this demographic should take into account.
