Kylie Jenner is going through backlash for her controversial lion’s head dress she not too long ago wore throughout Paris Vogue Week. The black velvet robe encompasses a life-size head of a lion.
The designer says on their Instagram web page that it’s “hand sculpted foam, wool and silk fake fur, and hand painted to look as life-like as potential, celebrating the glory of the pure world.”
They additional emphasize: “NO ANIMALS WERE HARMED IN MAKING THIS LOOK.”
Inventive director Daniel Roseberry says that he appeared to Dante’s Inferno and the 9 circles of hell for inspiration for the gathering. He cites it as a metaphor for the doubt and inventive torment artists endure.
Regardless of not harming any animals to make the costume, loads of followers nonetheless took challenge with the perceived messaging.
“The one factor that is glorifying is the killing of those animals, even when that is pretend,” one person wrote on social media. “The lion, cheetah and the wolf seem to be they’re actually meant to look as in the event that they have been killed and used for clothes. How is that this celebrating the glory of the pure world. Make it make sense.”
One other added: “Sorry but it surely’s a no for me. Whether or not it’s pretend or not, it promotes animal cruelty. Have fun the glory of the pure world???? Doesn’t make any sense. That is so fallacious. You might be selling animal violence and supporting trophy looking and poaching.”
Along with Jenner, Naomi Campbell modeled a black fake fur coat with a wolf’s head on it in the same fashion.
