  • Doja Cat, Kylie Jenner and more stepped out on Monday for Schiaparelli's Couture Spring-Summer 2023 show.
  • The Say So hitmaker made a statement when she arrived covered in head-to-toe Swarovski crystals.
  • Kylie Jenner's look garnered criticism, however, as she wore a life-size faux lion head on her shoulder.


Doja Cat stepped out on Monday in head-to-toe Swarovski crystals when she attended Schiaparelli's Couture Spring-Summer 2023 show.

The look, custom-designed by the fashion house's creative director Daniel Roseberry, was completed by makeup artist Pat McGrath and her team.

Five hours, a ridiculous amount of red body paint and 30 000 Swarovski crystals went into the look.

According to CNN, "Inferno Couture" – the label's latest collection – was inspired by Dante's Inferno and the nine circles of hell. Casual.

Another celebrity to turn heads at Fashion Week was Kylie Jenner, who wore a black velvet gown with a life-sized faux lion on her shoulder.

Naomi Campbell and Irina Shayk would later walk the runway for Schiaparelli's "faux-taxidermy".

But Jenner's look garnered criticism online, The Guardian reports, despite Schiaparelli specifying the lion head was made of "foam, wool and silk faux fur, and hand-painted to look as life-like as possible".

They added on Instagram: "NO ANIMALS WERE HARMED IN MAKING THIS LOOK."

But some users pointed out in the comments section of the post: "We have to stop showing animals as luxury 'products'. They may be made from foam, but these are endangered species that have historically been killed for their pelts to be turned into garments."
