Doja Cat is breaking the internet with her latest look at Paris Fashion Week. On Monday, the rapper and singer-songwriter commanded attention when she arrived at Schiaparelli’s 2023 Spring/Summer Haute Couture show adorned in 30,000 Swarovski crystals. According to reports, the eye-catching look for the first day of Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week was achieved by makeup artist Pat McGrath.
“Collaborating with the incomparably talented Doja Cat and Daniel Roseberry was an absolute pleasure,” McGrath shared with the media about the look she describes as “shimmering, scintillating, and subversive.” The MUA explained that the glam, which featured 30,000 hand-applied Swarovski crystals, took nearly five hours to achieve. The star completed her look with a Schiaparelli red silk bustier, a handknit skirt with lacquered wooden beads, crimson boots, and matching chandelier earrings.

We couldn’t come to an agreement but I wish them nothing but the best!! Get your tickets now!!! https://t.co/OCWFZfjFaq— AKA (@akaworldwide) January 22, 2023
It’s exactly two weeks before cotton eaters gather for another edition of the late Riky Rick’s Cotton Fest, but AKA has shared he won’t be joining them. The line-up was recently announced, and the “Lemons (Lemonade)” star was surprisingly missing. Taking to his Twitter timeline on Sunday, the rapper replied to a fan who tweeted the festival organizers, asking why the rapper wasn’t on their list. “We couldn’t come to an agreement but I wish them nothing but the best! Get your tickets now,” he said.
The festival is taking place in Newtown, Johannesburg, on Saturday, February 4, with a line-up featuring more than 160 artists, both young and established, performing live across three stages.

Australian actor Chris Hemsworth, known for playing Thor across the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is in Kenya. Hemsworth shared photos of him and his family enjoying time at a national park in the East African country.
The actor describes the trip to Kenya as one of the most memorable. “One of the most memorable trips to Kenya my family and I have ever had,” Hemsworth wrote on his Instagram page.
5. Everton sack Lampard
Everton has sacked Frank Lampard following the Toffees’ damaging Premier League defeat to West Ham this weekend. Lampard’s side suffered a 2-0 defeat to the Hammers at the London Stadium, in a contest that had been dubbed ‘El Sackico’. The result left Everton languishing in the Premier League relegation zone, two points adrift of safety, and the club’s under-fire board has taken the decision to give Lampard his marching orders.
Owner Farhad Moshiri, who made a rare appearance at the West Ham game where he bizarrely claimed sacking Lampard was “not his decision,” met with other board members in the capital following the defeat. After those discussions, a decision was made about Lampard’s future. The manager’s departure is unlikely to quell unrest in the Toffees’ fanbase, though, with supporters taking aim at years of perceived poor decision-making from those at the top in recent weeks.
Former Wolves and Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo, who is currently in charge at Saudi Arabian side Al-Ittihad, is among those being considered to replace Lampard. Sean Dyche, out of work since leaving Burnley at the end of last season, has also been tipped to take over at Goodison Park.
