Kylie Jenner Shocks in a Corset Gown With a Dramatic Lion Head
Kylie Jenner is back in couture. On Jan. 23, a day after finally revealing her son's name, the beauty mogul made her grand entrance at Schiaparelli's Paris Haute Couture Week show in quite the striking ensemble: a ruched velvet gown adorned with a giant faux lion's head. While the animal motif certainly stole the show, the rest of the piece wasn't exactly simple — the figure-hugging corset dress came with a lace-up back and a mermaid train. Jenner, who happens to be a Leo, completed the look with black and gold accessories, including gold toe heels, a snakeskin purse, and earrings in the shape of eyes.
"BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. thank you @danielroseberry and @schiaparelli for such a special morning. wow i loved wearing this faux art creation constructed by hand using manmade materials. beautiful beautiful," she wrote alongside photos from the show. Jenner wore the creation sitting front row, as a similar version debuted on the runway. Modeled by Irina Shayk, the catwalk version featured a long, one-shoulder silhouette and straight skirt.
The always-extravagant Schiaparelli couture collection included other designs based on lifelike creatures like a snow leopard, snake, and wolf, in addition to horned bustiers and dramatic embellishments. Fellow front row attendee Doja Cat also wore a shocking look, arriving at the show covered in head-to-toe red body paint and 30,000 Swarovski crystals.
Following a series of casual looks from Jenner, like a cutout onesie from Skims and matching Jean Paul Gaultier sets with best friend Stassie, the beauty brand founder has upped the ante for Paris Couture Week.
