Just like us, it seems that even celebrities are getting into Netflix’s documentary, Tiger King. And who can blame them? It’s the show that’s delivered us hours of entertainment, endless memes and wild conspiracy theories. But one thing we don’t tend to associate with the show is fashion inspiration. While Joe Exotic definitely has a distinct ‘look’, it’s not necessarily one we want to channel outside of a Halloween party context. But perhaps we’re just not being imaginative enough? Which leads us to Kourtney Kardashian, whose latest outfit is one big homage to the show.
Overnight, Kourtney shared a fire Instagram of her wearing a floor-length tiger print vintage Roberto Cavalli gown. The whole look is particularly timely considering the internet’s current fascination with all things big cat-related.
Check out Kourt’s tiger dress below:
Kourt captioned the post ‘Throwback to my tail’. Now, instead of the comment suggesting that the picture was a ‘throwback’, when you scroll through to the second picture, you can see that Kourt’s being a lot more literal, pinning a massive tail onto the back of her dress:
Uh, did we mention this is Roberto Cavalli? Not sure I’d have the courage to take my DIY flare to a vintage designer piece, but hey.
While you might be forgiven for thinking that the tail could just be part of the dress, there’s evidence suggesting this was a custom Kourtney addition.
Yup, here’s a snap of Kim wearing the same designer piece while posing on a rockface somewhere (as you do):
When you scroll through the snaps, we can’t help noticing that the tail appears to be absent, especially here:
Plus, if there was a tail attached to the dress originally, we can’t help thinking Kim would’ve dedicated a pose or two to it.
So there you have it, if Kourtney’s out here personalising designer outfits, turning them into big cat-inspired costumes, perhaps she’s an even bigger Tiger King fan than we are?
