Bonjour, Monsieur Cat. While they attended the Viktor & Rolf show at Paris Fashion Week Wednesday (January 25), Doja cat got in touch with her masculine side by wearing a fake mustache and goatee, but with a feminine twist: the facial hair was made of false eyelashes.
Wearing a tan pinstripe suit and blue shades, the “Woman” rapper rolled up to the show looking like a whimsical, glamorous version of the Guy Fawkes mask in v for Vendetta. The look served as a follow-up to the striking all-red ensemble she stepped out earlier this week at Schiaparelli’s show, which required Doja’s skin to be covered with 30,000 red Swarovski crystals with the help of makeup artist Pat McGrath.
This Hell-inspired look was actually the basis for Doja’s hairy follow-up, according to the Grammy winner. In an interview at the Viktor & Rolf show, she explained that fans had been upset that her red bejeweled face had not included eyelashes, which gave her the idea to respond with fake stickers on her upper lip, chin and eyebrows – pretty much everywhere . except where they are actually designed to go.
“A few days ago I was doing Schiaparelli and people were saying I didn’t have lashes and that they were disappointed that I didn’t have lashes,” Doja shared Nylon. “So today I gave them lashes. I hope they’re happy. I just want to make people happy.”
In fact, before stepping out for the Viktor & Rolf show, the “Kiss Me More” artist teased fans by writing on her Instagram Stories, “If lashes are what you all want, lashes are what you get. See you at Viktor and Rolf’s.” She ended her message with a very appropriate emoji: the disguised face, which has similar exaggerated eyebrows and mustache.
