The Kar-Jenner family frequently makes headlines for one reason or other. They frequently receive criticism for a variety of things, such as using Photoshop or trying to establish incredibly bizarre style statements. With that being said, Kylie Jenner was recently criticized for donning a ‘disturbing’ lion-head dress at Paris Fashion Week.
The makeup mogul went to the Schiaparelli show on Monday while dressed in a strapless black velvet gown with a life-sized and life-like lion head attached to it. This outfit was from the latest collection, which hadn’t even made it to the runway yet. Jenner took to her Instagram to show off that dress but unfortunately, fans didn’t really like the style.
Jenner wrote in the caption,
“BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. thank you @danielroseberry and @schiaparelli for such a special morning. wow i loved wearing this faux art creation constructed by hand using manmade materials. beautiful beautiful 🦁🦁”
Jenner’s supporters, however, weren’t fans of the furry front-row fashion piece. “But why. Why why why even imitate this. I’m thankful it’s faux but the imagery is still disturbing,” one user wrote, while another commented, “Why are you wearing animal’s head on your dress? Faux or not… it doesn’t make sense to me?”
While a third user wrote,
“Guess more Americans will be flocking to Africa now to get the latest wildlife accessories. Promoting hunting. As a South African, This is wrong on so many levels, The king of our jungle is not a fashion statement, like WTF.”
Some people called Jenner’s outfit, “horrifying,” “ridiculous,” and “one of [her] worst fashion mistakes of all time.” However, not everybody thought the appearance was inappropriate. One Instagrammer commented, “Y’all act like your kids ain’t carrying stuffed animals around. Wouldn’t it also be considered ‘promoting animal hunting.’”
Russian model Irina Shayk walked the Schiaparelli runway in a nearly identical variation of the wildlife-inspired look. According to the show notes, Daniel Roseberry, the house’s creative director, is said to have drawn inspiration from Dante’s “Inferno” this season.
