Paris Fashion Week.. Surprises spark controversy on social media | Miscellaneous | DW Arab window on the lives of celebrities and funny events | DW

American entrepreneur and reality TV star Kylie Jenner caused a stir when she appeared as a guest at the Paris Fashion Week show in a dress that featured an incredibly close-up lion’s head.

The dress designed by Daniel Rosebery for the famous Schiaparelli fashion house under the title “Leo Couture”, with which the lion’s head also appeared on the runway of Paris Fashion Week. Made of foam, wool and silk faux fur, the lion head has been handcrafted to look as lifelike as possible.

Promote the hunting of wild animals?

Due to the striking resemblance between the real lion and the head featured during the fashion show and to avoid creating fabrications, Schiaparelli added the following disclaimer to its Instagram post: “No animals were harmed in the making of this look.”

However, a number of animal lovers were disturbed by what they saw. “The whole thing is disgusting,” wrote one Instagram user. “Regardless of whether the animal heads are real or replicas, they encourage the hunting of wild animals, which is disgusting, violent and non-progressive.”

Ingrid Newkirk, head of animal rights organization PETA, told TMZ that the brand’s display of animal heads in such a true-to-life format is wonderfully innovative and “may be a statement against hunting wild animals, where families of lions are torn apart to satisfy human selfishness.”

Alongside Kylie Jenner’s look, Schiaparelli’s collection also featured a black wolf cape and a strapless white gown, with a snow leopard head hanging off the bodice.

“Doga Cat” launches a Google search for “trypophobia”

Rapper Doja Cat – whose 2022 album “Planet Her” became one of the five most streamed albums in the world on the Spotify platform – also caught the eye at the Fashion Week show.

Doga Cat was dressed in an all-red outfit, and all of her exposed skin was covered in red crystals. Some of her fans say her appearance triggered trypophobia—the fear of irregular patterns or clusters of tiny holes or bumps.

It took Pat McGrath — the makeup artist who created the look — more than five hours to paint the rapper’s face and body red and then apply 30,000 Swarovski crystals to her body.

Social networking sites were full of critical comments about the controversial appearance.

Surreal zoo

Inspired by the animal world, the fashion house of Chanel sculpted large animal models made of wood, paper and unpainted cardboard, against which the colorful and embroidered haute couture collection stood out.

Artist and designer Xavier Villehan said he wanted to “evoke the relationship with animals that is constantly evolving in our societies” and noted that he was inspired by the apartment of fashion house founder Coco Chanel.

Dior is strong

Dior presented its 13-piece collection by artist Mikaelyn Thomas to famous African-American women like Eartha Kate, Nina Simone and Josephine Baker.

The collection included dresses in muted colors and classic patterns that reflected the era of the twenties until the fifties of the last century.

Statement against the Iranian regime

Alongside the looks that drew a lot of attention, a sober political statement was made by a model at Louis Gabriel Nouchi’s show during Paris Fashion Week.

In a presentation of the fall-winter collection, the model held a small white piece of paper that read: “Stop executions in Iran.”
