Doja Cat’s Paris Fashion Week style is sure to remain unforgettable. After showing off all red in 30,000 crystals and body paint at the Schiaparelli show earlier this week, Doja has struck again with a viral look at the Viktor & Rolf show: her in a mustache, goatee and eyebrows, all fabricated from false eyelashes.
After promising fans that she would come out under the whipping, she kept her word, simply putting them in less expected places. Shortly before the show, Doja hinted to her fans that Mr. Doja Cat was coming to her Instagram story. “If lashes are what y’all want, then lashes are what you’ll get. See you at Viktor and Rolf 🥸” she wrote.
Asked about her outlook on the show, Doja explained to Nylon“a few days ago I did Schiaparelli, and people were saying I didn’t have eyelashes, and they were disappointed that I didn’t have any yet I worked with one of the greatest makeup artists of all time, Pat McGrath, and so today I gave them a thumbs up. So I hope they’re happy. I just want to make people happy so…”
She added that she loves being at Paris Fashion Week “and expressing myself here.”
McGrath posted a closer look at Doja’s glam Schiaparelli earlier this week, applauding her for her endurance during the nearly five hours it took for the glam. “Such a pleasure to work with the gorgeous @DojaCat and the amazing @DanielRoseberry on the ‘Doja’s Inferno’ look for @Schiaparelli’s Haute Couture FW23 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 and mesmerizing masterpiece of sparkling brilliance. xx”
