In a post on Instagram, Kylie called the lion head a 'faux art creation constructed by hand using manmade materials', but that didn't stop social media calling it in bad taste.

"BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. thank you @danielroseberry and @schiaparelli for such a special morning," wrote Kylie, "wow i loved wearing this faux art creation constructed by hand using manmade materials. beautiful beautiful".

One social user wrote, "The world today has only 20,000 lions", adding that her outfit is a "grave insensitivity towards a critical animal."

Another wrote, "This is literally promoting more hunting of animals," with one user questioning, "Are you okay? You are literally promoting animal hunting. Clearly famous doesn't mean smart or conscious. Does it?"

Kylie maintained in the caption that she was a fan of the look and said "beautiful beautiful" alongside a love heart emoji. At the time of writing, she is yet to address the backlash directly.

In other news, Kylie recently announced her son's name - Aire Webster - in a string of pictures posted to Instagram of her and her baby.
