Doja Cat and Haute Couture Designers Bring Flair to Paris Fashion Week
It may be cold and dreary outdoors, but things are bursting with life on the catwalks of Paris, and it gives even the darkest winter days a sense of hope and excitement. For the Paris Fashion Week Haute Couture shows for spring/summer 2023, it wasn’t just journalists and fashionistas out in full force – the celebrities also descended upon Paris for a few days of incredible shows. Most notable was Doja Cat, an American rapper who attended the Schiaparelli couture show at the Petit Palais covered in red body paint and 30,000 Swarovski crystals painstakingly applied for five hours by British makeup artist Pat McGrath.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Daniel Roseberry (@danielroseberry) Here are some of our favorite shows from the catwalks. Chanel The house of Chanel is known for its endlessly chic styles and evergreen glamour, and this year’s Chanel haute couture show brought chicness and glamour to the runway. Virginie Viard, the creative director of Chanel, reportedly took some inspiration from Coco Chanel’s apartment on Rue Cambon for the show. Chanel’s apartment contained statues of animals, like giraffes and camels, which were incorporated into the setting of this year’s show. Viard’s haute couture collection capitalized on the house’s iconic tweed styles and jackets, and also used black hats on many models. Creams, whites, light pinks, and greys were heavy in the rotation when it came to color. White gloves and calf-high white boots were spotted on many of the models.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by @chanelofficial
