Jane Keltner de Valle in Carven
Photo prints started showing up last summer, when Fashion News Director for Teen Vogue Jane Keltner de Valle wore a Carven shift printed with a black-and-white photo to the Boom Boom Room. The bold graphic livens up an otherwise simple frock, and her sophisticated choice of necklace and chic ponytail made for a cosmopolitan cocktail look.
Maggie Gyllenhall in Dries Van Noten
Whether you like the draping fit or not, the vivid photographic print of the Dries Van Noten Spring/Summer 2012 sack dress that Maggie Gyllenhall donned at a Hysteria photocall was on-trend.
Amanda Seyfried in Prabal Gurung

Leighton Meester in Carven
Celebs can’t get enough of Carven’s photo prints; Leighton Meester drifted away in the designer’s dreamy cloud print maxi dress with ruffle details at the waist for Fashion’s Night Out. Her tousled waves complemented the dress’ boho vibe.
Katy Perry in Moschino Cheap & Chic
Katy Perry loves statement pieces, and a picture is worth a thousand words. She was out and about in London wearing a Moschino Cheap & Chic dress emblazoned with a photo of a phone booth peeking out from under her trench.
Poppy Delevigne in Christopher Kane
Never one to miss out on a trend, model Poppy Delevigne showed off her street style during London Fashion Week in one of Christopher Kane’s ferocious animal-print pieces, bringing a new meaning to fierce fashion.
Nicole Scherzinger in Photo Print Leggings
The print also works for pants—X Factor USA judge and former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger showed off her legs in these graphic photo print leggings, paired with a grey tank, black velour blazer and strappy grey sandals.
