It goes without saying that Kylie Jenner is not one to shy away from standing out.

Over the years the reality star has had her fill of eye-grabbing ensembles, and that precedent is set to continue in 2023, certainly if her latest look is anything to go by.  

Haute couture fashion shows present the perfect opportunity for guests to raise the style stakes and go all out.

Nailing the Paris Fashion Week agenda, the 25-year-old exuded fiery animal instinct as she rocked up to Schiaparelli's runway show in the most spectacular outfit.

Exhibiting major Leo energy, the beauty mogul turned heads in a black strapless ruched maxi dress, adorned with a gigantic lion's head.

The beauty mogul paired her ruched maxi with an alligator-inspired accessory 

Channelling her inner 'Queen of the Jungle', Kylie looked nothing short of showstopping in her unconventional ensemble, despite only appearing on the front row. Born on 10 August 1997, the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan is an attention-adoring Leo, and true to astrological form, she basked in the limelight generated by her furry friend.

Animal lovers, fear not. Kylie's seriously wild outfit addition was not a real lion's head, but a careful man made construction, as she revealed in an Instagram post shared with her 379m followers. "BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. Thank you @danielroseberry and @schiaparelli for such a special morning," she gushed. "Wow I loved wearing this faux art creation constructed by hand using manmade materials. Beautiful beautiful."

The striking lion's head was first showcased within the luxury label's SS23 show, worn by Irina Shayk who sported the unconventional accessory alongside an asymmetric one-shoulder maxi.

According to, people born under the Leo star sign are natural leaders, and tend to be "dramatic, creative, self-confident and dominant". Suffice to say, Kylie is serving major Leo energy with her Schiaparelli look and we can't get enough. In a slightly spooky full-circle moment, the news comes just after Kylie revealed on Saturday the name of her 11-month-old son: Aire, which means Lion of God.

No prizes for guessing Kylie's 2023 spirit animal…
