Leave it to Doja Cat to make a bold entrance. The 27-year-old rapper attended Schiaparelli’s Haute Couture spring 2023 fashion show in an unforgettable look—she was covered head-to-toe in 30,000 red Swarovski crystals.

The Paris Fashion Week event was held at Petit Palais on Jan. 23, and makeup artist Pat McGrath shared Doja Cat’s showstopping ensemble on Instagram. Each of the crystals were applied by hand and the entire process took nearly five hours. The look, styled by Brett Alan Nelson, was topped off with a crimson bustier top, beaded scarlet skirt and fiery red boots. The singer-songwriter also wore large gemstone chandelier earrings and accessorized with a long wrap of the same color that cascaded around her arms.

“Doja’s sublime patience during the 4 hours and 58 minutes it took to create the look with #TeamPatMcGrath, which was covered in over 30,000 hand-applied @swarovski Crystals, was inspiring. The final product was a magical, mesmerizing masterpiece of sparkling brilliance. xx,” McGrath wrote in the caption of her post.

Fans in the comments section were obsessed with the bold outfit.

“I have NO words and it’s very rare to render me speechless!! 🙌🏼❣️🙌🏼❣️,” wrote makeup artist Gregory Arlt.

“Speechless!! ❤️❤️❤️ Impeccable mastery, Pat! 🔥🔥🔥,” added model Daria Strokous.
