Elsewhere, Doja Cat wore an outfit covered in red crystals and leather from head to toe, covered with an ornate balaclava down to the toes, complemented by red designer leather foot boots.

Jenner’s striking lion head was also featured by model Irina Shayk in the luxury brand’s show, who donned an unconventional accessory alongside an asymmetric one-shoulder maxi.

It wasn’t the only lion-inspired outfit, as the Panthera motif pervaded the entire Roseberry collection, which according to the show notes was inspired by Dante’s “Inferno” and the nine circles of hell – a metaphor for “doubt and creative anguish”. all artists experience.

According to Schiaparelli, the lifelike creations were made entirely by hand from foam resin and other man-made materials like “fake taxidermy”.

“3 animals sculpted and embroidered by hand, celebrating the glory of nature and guarding the woman who wears them,” Roseberry explained on Instagram, sharing a caption with several behind-the-scenes photos.

Fake or not, the eye-catching pieces have garnered quite a bit of negative attention, with some social media users finding the “disturbing” collection hard to appreciate due to its visual resemblance to a trophy hunt.

“There are times when you just say no. This was one of them,” another user wrote under Jenner’s Instagram photo.
