It's a bit jarring isn't it?

Pictures of Kylie Jenner emerged during Paris Fashion Week (it's always Fashion Week somewhere) wearing a super realistic lion's head dress.

People on social media initially freaked out because it's easily mistaken for a real life piece of taxidermy.

But Schiaparelli, the brand behind the designer gown, wanted to make it abundantly clear that no animals were harmed in the making of the dress.

While opinion on the internet is divided on whether or not this fashion statement sends the right message, the animal rights group PETA, openly defended the dress.

A representative from the brand told TMZ that the gown was "fabulously innovative" and "may be a statement against trophy hunting, in which lion families are torn apart to satisfy human egotism".

So, what do you think? Is Kylie Jenner's  controversial lion dress an impressive piece of art or does it send out the wrong message? Let us know on our social media channels
