Lions, tigers and bears, oh my! Welcome to our second look at Zoo Miami for Miami: Through the Lens of Street Fashion. Different from our bird watching heroine last week, our subject here is clothed in an Alice & Olivia floor skimming dress that features a painterly pattern of blossoming flowers. Just like her dress, Zoo Miami is a colorful place filled with life in every corner. Our subject, at first is poised quietly next to the animals that have come to symbolize Miami in so many ways: pink flamingos. Next, we see her wild side unleash around the lion exhibit. She ambles around a tree playfully as if ready to leap on to it. Later, she is spotted scurrying across the exhibit and tinkering with a coin viewer to get a bettter glimpse at her feline friends. She, like so many of the animals at the zoo is peaceful and yet knows how to bask in the beauty of life.
