Doja Cat rose to prominence around the turn of the millennium as a rapper with pop crossover skills. As well as being known for her music, Doja has also made a name for herself as a fashion icon as the ‘Need to Know’ host has often turned up to events with the most striking looks of all those in attendance. Her latest look to break the internet has her stoned from head to toe in red Swarovski crystals.

Paris Fashion Week started in January 2023 and presented the collections of popular fashion brands for the upcoming autumn/winter season. One fashion show that has garnered a lot of attention is the Schiaparelli show.

Schiaparelli has garnered acclaim for his imaginative looks over the past few years, and the Fall/Winter 2023 show was no different, with many outfits featuring lifelike heads of wildlife such as lions and leopards.

Doja Cat turned heads when she appeared at the Schiaparelli runway show covered in thousands of red Swarovski crystals and a matching red dress with a similarly embellished skirt.

Doja’s stunning look was brought to life by celebrity makeup artist and cosmetics mogul Pat McGrath and her team of professionals. The crew spent almost five hours placing each crystal on Doja’s skin by hand. Her hair was capped and her skin covered in paint before crystals and gold dust were applied to almost every inch of her body. McGrath shared a video documenting the process.

“Such a pleasure to work with the beautiful Doja Cat and amazing [Schiaparelli creative director] Daniel Roseberry on the ‘Doja’s Inferno’ look for Schiaparelli’s FW23 haute couture collection,” McGrath wrote on Instagram of the endeavor. “Doja’s supreme patience throughout the 4 hours and 58 minutes it took to create the look with #TeamPatMcGrath, covered in over 30,000 hand-applied Swarovski crystals, was inspiring. The end product was a magical, mesmerizing masterpiece of scintillating brilliance.”

Doja’s glare was a reminder not to be taken lightly. And her last album planet her Released in 2021, it shows that her star is not dimmed at all in 2023.

When it comes to new music, Doja Dazed said in November 2022 that she’s listened to a variety of artists, including a lot of music by legendary hip-hop group Beastie Boys.

“If you want a teaser of my thoughts, I’ve done that many times. And just to be clear, Beastie Boys is a gigantic inspiration for me. Beastie Boys will hit you with hard, loud, and crazy rap, but they’ll also hit you with real, raw 90’s punk, which I love, or smooth techno that feels sexy and elegant. And you’re going to be like, ‘Where the hell did that come from?’” she said. “I want to take some of the beautiful elements of voice distortion and bring that into the music. I don’t know if what I’m doing will be pop, but I want to keep that in mind when I go into the studio.”

Her sonic shift for her fourth studio album comes after she initially teased that it was inspired by German raves.
