Doja Cat’s Paris Fashion Week style will certainly go down as unforgettable. After showing up all red in 30,000 crystals and body paint to Schiaparelli’s show earlier this week, Doja struck again with a viral look at Viktor & Rolf’s show: her in a mustache, goatee, and brows, all made from faux eyelashes.
After promising fans she’d go out in lashes, she kept her word, just placing them in less expected places. Shortly before the show, Doja hinted to her fans that Mr. Doja Cat was coming on her Instagram Story. “If lashes are what you all want, then lashes are what you’ll get. See you at Viktor and Rolf 🥸” she wrote.
When asked about her look at the show, Doja explained to Nylon, “a few days ago, I did Schiaparelli, and people were saying that I didn’t have lashes, and that they were disappointed that I didn’t have on lashes yet I worked with one of the greatest makeup artists of all time, Pat McGrath, and so today I gave them lashes. So I hope they’re happy. I just want to make people happy so…”
She added that she loved being at Paris Fashion Week “and expressing myself here.“
McGrath posted a closer look at Doja’s Schiaparelli glam earlier this week, applauding her for her endurance during the nearly five hours it took for glam. “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,” McGrath wrote on Instagram. “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”
