This morning in Paris, a handful of models walked down the Schiaparelli spring couture runway with faces dipped in gold. But Doja Cat, who was sitting front row, has been there and done that—she made headlines last September at Paris Fashion Week by covering herself entirely in gold paint. So how did she dress for the occasion this time? Well, by coating herself in 30,000 red Swarovski crystals, from the top of her head to the tips of her finger nails. Her full body makeup mimicked the ornate beading of her Schiaparelli dress’s skirt, worn with a cascading crimson shawl. It made the glistening gold-plated faces of the models look extremely tame in comparison.

Daniel Roseberry‘s latest Schiaparelli collection is inspired by Dante’s Inferno and Doja Cat indeed looked like she had just crawled out of hell to remind everyone how fantastic her fashion week looks can be. Roseberry said in a statement, “This collection is my homage to doubt.” And Doja Cat’s look muddled the boundaries between real flesh and statuesque works of art just as much as those dipped in gold.

But unlike last year, where Doja Cat coincidentally and without planning wore the same makeup as the models at the Balenciaga show, her Schiaparelli couture look was deliberate. Makeup artist Pat McGrath, who was behind the beauty for the show, set aside four hours and fifty-eight minutes to complete Doja’s look. On Instagram, she praised the singer’s patience and commitment, writing, “The final product was a magical, mesmerising masterpiece and a tribute to Doja Cat’s hard work and dedication.”

It’s true that no one in recent memory has been as committed to metamorphic fashion week looks as Doja Cat. Given that today is only the first day of Couture Week, we’re going to predict the singer’s looks will only get more elaborate from here.
