We all know how much Olivia Palermo loves Bensoni, but it was Jennifer Love Hewitt who was the first to wear this purple animal print dress from the designers Spring 2010 collection.

The actress/author wore the dress back in March when she signed copies of her new book, “The Day I Shot Cupid”, at Barnes and Noble at Huntington Beach, California.

She kept her look very minimal by only adding black cut-out wedges.

Olivia wore her Bensoni dress to Elie Saab’s Fall 2010 Couture presentation.

Known for her impeccable style and keen eye for accessorizing, Olivia paired her dress with a contrasting animal print belt, nude t-bar heels and a silver clutch.

Olivia wins easily for me because her accessories make the look.

I recently purchased a Topshop leopard print belt in an attempt to recreate the clashing prints.  I hope I pull it off as well as Olivia.
