Only one 12 months after engineering Julia Fox’s viral raccoon eyes, make-up grasp Pat McGrath has dreamt up one other internet-breaking look: Doja Cat, coated in over 30,000 Swarovski crystals.
The rapper attended Schiaparelli’s couture present in Paris — the identical event at which the “Fox Eye” debuted final 12 months — in a crimson robe straight off the runway. To enrich the monochrome ensemble, McGrath and her group painted the “Say So” star a customized combination of pink physique and face paint.
The artists then added a layer of pink glitter over Doja’s whole head, arms, and chest. The cherry on high? The aforementioned Swarovski crystals — over 30,000 of them, in case you did not catch that — which reportedly took 4 hours and 58 minutes to hand-apply.
In step with the theme of Schiaparelli’s newest couture assortment, Doja’s half horrifying, half fabulous look was impressed by Canto I of Dante’s Inferno, an epic poem that chronicles the poet’s journey via hell.
Inventive director Daniel Roseberry translated the three beasts that Dante encounters — a leopard, a lion, and a “she-wolf” — into three-dimensional clothes bearing (extraordinarily convincing) fake taxidermy heads of every creature. None aside from Kylie Jenner sat entrance row (simply two seats down from the dazzlingly sparkly Doja) carrying an elaborate robe with a lion head bustier.
Sans animal head, Doja’s brilliant pink visage was doubtless a extra summary reference to Inferno and its many circles of hell, replete with blood and fireplace. It was an act of make-up artistry that deserves blasphemous expletives, for certain.
