Let’s face it, cats are pretty cool.

They hold a special place in the animal kingdom, not to mention in the hearts of cat lovers everywhere. This is probably the most plausible explanation we’ve posited so far as to why cats are such a favorite in fashion, not to mention a symbol of female empowerment and women’s rights movements.

What’s not to like about cats? These creatures basically embody sleekness. They’re also highly intelligent and make good companions, which is why they’re a favorite among pet owners.

Maybe that’s why it’s so intriguing when Madonna slips into a Gucci suit emblazoned with gleaming gold tigers. As she shows, cat motifs make for chic decorations, whether you’re going for a fierce look or more of an adorable, friendly vibe.
