Kendall Jenner Is Being Savaged Online After Wearing A 'Fur Coat' On The Catwalk

The highest-paid model in the world has been labelled a “disgrace”.

Kendall Jenner has sparked outrage after wearing what many assume to be real fur during Milan Fashion Week.

The reality TV star appeared on the DSquared2 catwalk on Sunday donning an oversized fur jacket over the top of a satin maxi dress.

Images of Jenner - who was recently hailed the world's highest-paid model - wearing the jacket were met with harsh criticism online.

Users across social media have branded the model a "disgrace" and have criticised her for setting a poor example to both her fans and the public.

Despite the backlash, neither Jenner or DSquared2 have confirmed whether or not the jacket was made of real fur or just a very realistic alternative.

Reports do claim, however, that the high-end brand does stock mink coats, 100% Racoon fur hats and hooded jackets made from Coyote fur.

In recent years, designer brands including Michael Kors, Gucci and Vivienne Westwood have all ceased to use fur in their collections.

Following the backlash, many users were quick to suggest that some of the criticism should be aimed at DSquared2 themselves.

In addition, some users supported the model's decision to wear the coat.

Jenner is yet to respond to the incident.

This isn't the first time Kendall has faced online backlash - the star was at the centre of a worldwide controversy following her appearance in a Pepsi advert which mimicked the Black Lives Matter movement.
