American rapper and singer Doja Cat has taken the fashion world and social media by storm after appearing at a Paris Fashion Week show in a look that took five hours to pull together.
The ‘Vegas’ singer stepped out to the Schiaparelli Haute Couture fashion show sparkling in red crystals.
Doja’s grand entrance on the first day of Couture Week saw the star covered with 30,000 hand-placed Swarovski crystals, draped in a red silk faille bustier and wearing a hand-knit skirt of wooden beads, completing her extravagant look with boots.
“Doja’s Inferno” was brought to life by celebrity makeup artist Pat McGrath. The makeup artist and entrepreneur spent “4 hours and 58 minutes” hand-placing each crystal with her team onto Doja’s skin, McGrath shared on Instagram.
The singer and fashion icon’s hair was covered in caps, then her skin in paint, before crystals and gold dust were applied to her body.
“Such a pleasure working with the gorgeous @DojaCat and the amazing @DanielRoseberry on the ‘Doja’s Inferno’ look for @Schiaparelli’s FW23 Haute Couture collection. Doja’s sublime patience during the 4 hours and 58 minutes it took to create the look with #TeamPatMcGrath, which was covered in over 30,000 hand-applied @swarovski Crystals, was inspiring. The final product was a magical, mesmerising masterpiece of sparkling brilliance. Xx.” McGrath wrote in an Instagram caption.
The show, however, didn’t stop with Doja Cat’s crystals outfit. There were also fake animal heads at the event.
Kylie Jenner stepped out in a dramatic lion’s head gown. The star wore her Leo pride on her chest for the show, with a life-size lion’s head replica attached to her black body hugging dress.
