Kylie Jenner faced backlash for her dress which she wore on Schiaparelli’s couture runway in Paris. Her strapless black velvet gown became more attractive by the life-sized head of the lion.

Kylie Jenner showed up with a killer look and she sat in the front row on Schiaparelli’s picture runway.

On Monday, she attended the fashion show wearing a brand-new creation from Schiaparelli’s couture. Well, being a Leo, Kylie chose her dress featuring a black strapless velvet gown along with the head of a lion.

The head looked real and people commented on this matter. Similarly, Jenner faced backlash before also for wearing dresses made from animal fur. Likewise, this time she clearly announced to everyone via Instagram that the head of the lion was totally fake.

Kylie wrote that the dress designer designed the dress by hand and it took a lot of hard work. So, she stated,

“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 ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฆ.”

Daniel Roseberry who is the creative director of Schiaparelli’s couture took inspiration from poet Dante Alighieri about the looks on the fashion show. He focused on their animals’ symbols i.e. leopard(lust), the lion(pride), and the she-wolf(avarice). In this, Kylie Jenner matched Leo’s energy.

In addition to that, the black wolf’s head-designed dress was worn by the model, Naomi Campbell. The leopard-designed dress was worn by the model Irina Shayk.

The officialย Instagram account of Schiaparelli wrote about the matter making it clear that no animals were harmed in making the dresses. According to them,

“The leopard, the lion, and the she-wolfโ€”representing lust, pride, and avarice in Danteโ€™s iconic allegory โ€” in hand-sculpted foam, resin, wool, and silk faux fur, hand painted to look as life-like as possible. NO ANIMALS WERE HARMED IN MAKING THIS LOOK.”

However, PETA president, Ingrid Newkirk praised the look by saying the dresses were fabulously innovative and “may be a statement against trophy hunting, in which lion families are torn apart to satisfy human egotism.”

Further Explanation

The official Instagram account of Peta posted a video of Kylie Jenner, Naomi, and Irina walking during a fashion show. In the video, it is written,

“These Schiaparelli looks have everyone talking about the horrors of trophy hunting, which murders wild animals & tears families apart. We’re also asking folks to consider the real animals who did suffer & die for this runway show, sheep and silkworms!”

Moreover, people were really concerned about the animals and they were against the dresses which show in the comment section. Talking about this, one user commented,

“I have only one question, why with all the creativity that the human mind can create, choose dead animal heads (replicas)? I understand the effort put into building every single element but seeing the images I have a strong pain and displeasure for the message you are sending. Am I the only one?”

Not only this, but another user also wrote,

“The whole concept of this is repulsive. Regardless of whether the animal heads are real or replicas, they promote trophy hunting. Furthermore, in order to create these animal heads you used wool and silk, which harms animals. This is disgusting, violent, and non-progressive. Try again.”

Meanwhile, the third one stated,

“real or not, it still promotes animal cruelty. carrying a decapitated head like an accessory in a fashion event is not what a mentally normal person would do.”

On the other hand, people are so fast on making memes about Kylie Jenner’s looks. Twitter is full of memes after the pictures of the fashion week went out. Below are some of the memes, check them out!
