These Nostalgic Red Carpet Moments Remind Us of Carol Baskin's Tiger King Wardrobe
Two things that have been on my mind since finishing Netflix’s Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness. Along with not being able to stop saying “Hey, all you cool cats and kittens,” I haven’t been able to get Carole Baskin’s closet out of my head. If you need a refresher, she showed off her wardrobe on the true-crime docuseries and it only consists of what she likes to call “cat prints.” Even the animal advocate’s luggage came in these wild prints! Talk about being committed to a trend.
After seeing her multiple animal-print ensembles throughout the show, I couldn’t help but feel like her entire wardrobe felt like it was right out of the early ’00s. It reminded me of seeing celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Lindsay Lohan walking the red carpet back in the day wearing cheetah- and leopard-print outfits designed by Roberto Cavalli. (He was notorious for using these wild prints in a lot of his designs!) While it seems like many have found a newfound love of these prints on Instagram after watching the show, I thought it would be fun to look back at some of these red carpet looks. Read on to see some of my favorites.
