Doja Cat refuses to remove the foot she’s had planted firmly on our necks during spring-summer 2023 Paris haute couture Fashion Week, which started on January 23. Even if you aren’t dutifully following what’s been happening on the runways, there’s a good chance you’ve probably seen pictures of the rapper covered in red crystals from head to toe at the Schiaparelli show, which was just as visually stimulating. Last year during Paris Fashion Week, Doja Cat pushed the boundaries of fashion and beauty with several experimental looks, including one that involved covering her face in gold paint and another where she wore white, webbed makeup over her entire face and head.
So I should not have been shocked when I opened my Instagram app and was met with a picture of Doja Cat looking like what can only be described as a French villain. Wait, let me explain with photo evidence, of course. The singer-rapper arrived at the Viktor & Rolf haute couture spring-summer 2023 show on January 25 in a striped, brown two-piece suit with her buzz cut and the most minimal makeup — except for the expertly placed falsies that mimicked eyebrows and facial hair.
Wispy false lashes were turned upside down and adhered where her eyebrows would be, giving the appearance of bushy brows that were brushed upwards. Two more falsies, which looked like they were trimmed to a smaller size, were placed right above her lips for a wispy mustache that covered a bit of her upper lip. And a smaller piece of a lash was glued beneath her lips for a little soul-patch moment.
