“PETA’s President, Ingrid Newkirk, praised the fashion house for its “fabulously innovative” animal headdresses, which were also worn by Irina Shayk and Naomi Campbell,” quoted some media outlets recently.

Ingrid Newkirk was of the view that Kylie, Naomi and Irina’s looks celebrate the beauty of wild animals and may be a statement against trophy hunting, in which lions and wolves are torn apart to satisfy human egotism,” she told a media outlet.

Meanwhile she also lauded Schiaparelli for creativity revolving around the use of faux-fur throughout the entire collection.
“We encourage everyone to stick with 100 per cent cruelty-free designs that showcase human ingenuity and prevent animal suffering,” she further stated.

Moreover she asked Jenner and her others to use the creativity to exclude sheep shorn bloody for wool and silkworms boiled alive in their cocoons.
