The @schiaparelli Haute Couture SS23 show in Paris featured 30 000 @swarovski crystals applied by hand by Doja Cat Couture @dojacat, the fashion house announced on Instagram. As part of his stunning ensemble, the rapper wore a “red silk faille bustier,” a “hand-knit skirt of lacquered wooden beads” and “trompe l’œil toe boots.”
The makeup artist Pat McGrath revealed that Doja’s glittering face took four hours and 58 minutes to create.
McGrath thanked the Grammy winner for her “sublime patience” during the process, describing the final product as a magical, mesmerizing masterpiece of sparkling brilliance.
The fashion show featured Naomi Campbell, Shalom Harlow and Irina Shayk strutting down the runway in haute couture gowns embellished with giant animal heads in a nod to Dante’s Inferno.
(All Schiaparelli’s posts ensured that “NO ANIMALS WERE HARMED IN MAKING” any of the looks.) Kylie Jenner sat front row with a giant lion’s head attached to her black dress during the presentation.)
Recently, Doja nabbed five nominations at the upcoming 2023 Grammy Awards — including record of the year for “Woman” — and five more for this year’s iHeartRadio Awards. In the event that her song wins record of the year, it would be the shortest track in more than half a century to win.
