Doja Cat causes a sensation with a mind-blowing look at Paris Fashion Week

Doja Cat was inspired by Schiaparelli Haute Couture’s fashion show, Dante’s “Inferno”, and moved on.

The “Say So” singer arrived at the Paris Fashion Week show on Monday wearing a stunning head-to-toe red look brought to life by celebrity makeup artist Pat McGrath.

According to McGrath, it took 30,000 hand-applied Swarovski crystals and nearly five hours to create the “magical and captivating masterpiece of shimmering brilliance.” The star’s red body paint and crystal-encrusted skin was teamed with a red silk bustier, knee-high red boots, and a textured skirt covered in crimson beading.

While the singer’s appearance stood out (to say the least), it was also in keeping with the concept of the show. According to the collection notes, the Spring-Summer 2023 show was influenced by Dante Alighieri’s “The Divine Comedy,” a three-part poem about Dante’s journey through hell, purgatory, and heaven, and attempts to blur the lines between the real and the unreal. .

The ensemble sparked mixed reactions on social media. Many praised it as a bold piece of art, while others felt it resembled other things:

Kylie Jenner, for her part, also took a risk with a unique look by Schiaparelli, which later appeared on the catwalk. She attended the show with a giant (fake) lion’s head draped over the shoulder of a black dress.

That also sparked a heated discussion online:

Although Jenner earned her some “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” jokes, she was also channeling the collection.

Daniel Roseberry, Schiaparelli’s artistic director, said he was directly inspired by some of Dante’s “most striking images.”

“The leopard, lion, and she-wolf, representing lust, pride, and greed, respectively, find form here in spectacular faux taxidermy creations, built entirely by hand from foam, resin, and other man-made materials.” , said. he wrote he.
