Shania Twain is a musical legend and she knows it. Like most icons, some of the images they have worn over the years have made history and have stood the test of time. For Twain, one of her most iconic looks was the full leopard print from the 1998 music video “That Don’t Impress Me Much”. Knowing this all too well, the country singer recreated the look at the 2022 People’s Choice Awards on Tuesday night.
In the new look, which took a much s*xier approach, Twain, who performed and won a People’s Icon award at the event, wore a bespoke Rodarte gown with the iconic leopard print hood, sheer sleeves and a matching waist panel that showed off her abs and paired with a black velvet skirt.
In addition to her wild look, Twain also changed her hairstyle and dyed it bubblegum pink. So much fun!
talking to El Earlier this year, Twain shared what the look (and leopard print in general) meant to her. “Some people say ‘white is my neutral’ or ‘black is my neutral’. For me, leopard print is neutral,” she told the publication. “When I first started filming music videos early in my career, I gravitated toward all the leopard print options on the stand while laying. I just felt like it was a win-win neutral color that I could wear with anything“.
She continued, “You can dress him, you can dress him. This is the main print because you can put leopard on velvet, chiffon, sheer or silk. Anything. He’s hyper flexible.”
Regarding the music video’s look, Twain said that the look was a “collaborative process” between her and fashion designer Mark Bauer in 1998. According to Twain, the look came about when they were inspired by the fabric in Bauer’s showroom.
“It was stretchy velvet,” she said of what made the fabric stand out, “I fell in love with the way it moved.” She continued, “When you run, dance, jump and change quickly, your outfit there is be durable. I never want to feel limited when I perform. So, it all starts with comfort. It’s always like that with me. Whatever I wear on stage should be comfortable.”
She recalls: “So I said to Mark, ‘Let’s take the belly — oh, and I like the flared leg.’ She added, “I knew we were going to shoot in the desert, so I needed to feel comfortable. 12 hours standing. That meant platforms and layers so I could take my jacket off to cool off.”
From 1998 to the present, it’s safe to say that Twain still knows how to wear leopard print. We will be looking forward to her own print for many years to come!
