‘I can’t believe you would stoop this low’
Kylie Jenner had tongues wagging when she appeared at Paris Fashion Week over the weekend. But she might not have liked what people had to say about her outfit, which saw her appearing at the Schiaparelli show wearing a strapless, fitted black velvet gown featuring a replica life-sized lion’s head across her torso.
“The only thing this is glorifying is the killing of these animals, even if this is fake,” one person wrote in an Instagram post. “The lion, cheetah and the wolf seem like they are literally meant to look as if they were killed and used for clothing. How is this celebrating the glory of the natural world. Make it make sense.”

“Sorry but it’s a no for me. Whether it’s fake or not, it promotes animal cruelty,” another wrote, while an additional comment read, “Celebrate the glory of the natural world???? Doesn’t make any sense. This is so wrong. You are promoting animal violence and supporting trophy hunting and poaching.”
One critic dismissed the dress as “one of your worst fashion mistakes of all time.”
“A big no no,” a fifth person chided. “Very disturbing and could promote animal abuse indirectly.”
Many of Jenner’s followers criticized her personally for modelling the lifelike design.
“I can’t believe you would stoop this low. It’s tacky and disgusting,” one detractor fired off, with another accused her of making “a terrible fashion mistake.”
“Kylie’s look celebrates lions’ beauty and may be a statement against trophy hunting, in which lion families are torn apart to satisfy human egotism,” the organization’s president Ingrid Newkirk said.
The latest news comes after Jenner finally revealed her son’s name over the weekend, just before his first birthday.
Jenner and Travis Scott named their little boy Aire, Jenner revealed.
After a fan account asked, “Do you think it’s pronounced air or airey?” Jenner responded, “AIR” alongside a red heart emoji.
