For those concerned about where she even got the lion’s head, you’ll be happy to hear that the lion's head was completely handmade and no lions were hurt for the outfit.

“wow, I loved wearing this faux art creation constructed by hand using manmade materials. beautiful beautiful,” said Jenner’s caption.

Schiaparelli also explained how the head came together in an Instagram post.

Schiaparelli shared photos of models in other animal-head dressed on its Instagram account.

According to Jenner, the dress was made entirely of “manmade materials.”

The line featuresmany similar outfits with different animal heads as accessories, and CNN reported that Jenner’s lion head and all the other animal heads from the show were handmade from foam resin.

Schiaparelli described the pieces as “faux-taxidermy,” but that doesn’t mean the heads didn’t make some people uncomfortable.

So it’s safe to say the critics aren’t happy.
