This morning in Paris, a handful of models paraded down the Schiaparelli spring couture catwalk with faces dipped in gold. But Doja Cat, who sat in the front row, was there and did it – she made headlines last September at Paris Fashion Week by covering herself entirely in gold paint. So how did she dress for the occasion this time around? Well, by coating herself with 30,000 red Swarovski crystals, from the top of her head to the tips of her fingernails. Her full makeup mimicked the beading adorned on the skirt of her Schiaparelli gown, which featured a cascading crimson train. This made the glittering gold-plated faces of the models extremely tame in comparison.
Daniel Roseberry’s latest Schiaparelli collection is inspired by Dante Hell and Doja Cat indeed looked like she came out of hell to remind everyone just how fantastic her fashion week look can be. Roseberry said in a statement, “This collection is my homage to doubt.” And Doja Cat’s gaze blurs the lines between real flesh and sculptural works of art just as much as those dipped in gold.
But unlike last year, when Doja Cat coincidentally and unplanned wore the same makeup as the Balenciaga runway models, her Schiaparelli couture look was deliberate. Makeup artist Pat McGrath, who was behind the beauty of the show, set aside four hours and fifty-eight minutes to complete Doja’s look. On Instagram, she praised the singer’s patience and commitment, writing, “The end product was a magical, mesmerizing masterpiece and a tribute to Doja Cat’s hard work and dedication.”
It’s true that no one in recent memory has been more committed to fashion week makeover looks than Doja Cat. Considering today is just the first day of Couture Week, we’re predicting that the singer’s looks will only get more elaborate from here.
