At Schiaparelli's Paris Fashion Week Show, reality TV star and entrepreneur, Kylie Jenner arrived with a fake lion's head on her black column Schiaparelli gown. That was this year's first top-trending fashion moment, even though Doja Cat in 30,000 red crystals is also a strong contender.

The interesting thing about Kylie’s dress is she got the dress even before it debuted on the runway, talk about having clout and influence. Plus, her star sign Leo is symbolized by a lion.

It was not a real lion’s head, but we thought animal lovers might raise their eyebrows. This wasn't the case: PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) has applauded Kylie’s Faux Lion head dress, PETA president Ingrid Newkirk told TMZ ... "Kylie's look celebrates lions' beauty and maybe a statement against trophy hunting, in which lion families are torn apart to satisfy human egotism."

Schiaparelli’s collection was made by Daniel Roseberry, and he titled the collection, ‘Inferno’. The collection was based on poem collection called ‘Divine Comedy’ written by Dante Alighieri in the 14th century.


The poem talks about the soul's journey through hell. In the book, Dante saw human vices dressed as animals. The leopard represents lust, the lion represents pride, and the she-wolf represents greed. Irina Shayk cosplayed the lion, Shalom Harlow the leopard, and Naomi Campbell the she-wolf.

'Inferno' is the title first part of 'Divine Comedy' series and Doja's red outfit was called Doja's inferno.

However, a lot can be said about Schiaparelli's attention to detail in making couture; their impeccable tailoring, the interesting silhouettes and shapes made Schiaparelli's fashion show one of most popular at Paris Fashion Week.
