Doja Cat has spent Paris’s Haute Couture Fashion Week pretty much breaking the internet. Her campy, over-the-top looks have made headlines and wowed fans on social media.
Most of the attention has been on the gob-stopping head-to-toe red ensemble she wore to Schiaparelli’s Spring-Summer 2023 Couture show earlier this week. Doja Cat turned to famed make-up artist Pat McGrath to cover her body in 30,000 red Swarovski crystals for an other-worldly look that pretty much upstaged the custom red dress Schiaparelli creative director Daniel Roseberry made for her to wear.
On Wednesday, Doja stole the show again, this time wearing a tailored menswear-inspired outfit complete with a mustache and goatee to the Viktor & Rolf show. The look was giving drag king, as they say.
And that’s not all. It turns out the gender-bending moment was a response to social media coverage of her other show-stopping look.
After photos of Doja decked out in crystals at the Schiaparelli show hit the internet, some fans took issue with the fact that she wasn’t wearing eyelashes. The nerve!
The “Kiss Me More” singer took notice. “If lashes are what you all want, then lashes are what you’ll get. See you at Viktor and Rolf,” she promised via her Instagram stories, including a mustachioed emoji.
True to her word, her ‘stache, goat, and eyebrows at the V&R show were all, in fact, fake eyelashes.
“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,” Doja told Nylon. “And so today I gave them lashes. So, I hope they’re happy. And I just want to make people happy so…”
Fans were, indeed, happy, praising Doja for bringing a sense of fun and camp to fashion.
