Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) — American rapper Doja Cat dazzled viewers Monday as she arrived at Schiaparelli’s latest fashion show in a sexy head-to-toe look adorned with red body paint and 30,000 Swarovski crystals.
Makeup artist Pat McGrath brought this eye-catching outfit for Daniel Rosebery, the house’s creative director, to life after her team spent nearly five hours perfecting the look.
The singer’s arrival at the Petit Palais in the French capital, Paris, marked an exciting start to Schiaparelli’s Spring-Summer 2023 show. The brand’s latest collection is called “Inferno Couture”, which is inspired by the poem “Inferno”. To Dante and the Nine Circles of Hell, according to Rosebery in the accompanying booklet.
And the appropriate infernal Doja Cat costume was distinguished, with a silk bodice and a skirt covered with painted wooden beads, and red shoes that matched her look.
McGrath described the look as “dugga hell” on social media Monday. The makeup artist also posted a behind-the-scenes video showing her team coloring the star’s skin, hand-applying thousands of crystals.
Doja Cat arrived at the show with designer Brit Allan Nelson, who was dressed in a red suit and long jacket from the Vetements collection. Then she was seated in the front row just a few feet away from Kylie Jenner, who also made headlines in a strapless black velvet dress, topped with a life-size faux lion head.
On the runway, other costumes from Schiaparelli’s “Fake Embalming” collection were shown. Naomi Campbell and Irina Shayk were among the models who walked the catwalk in similar outfits with animal heads.
