Doja Cat seemed a tad off-color in her spectacular red crystal ensemble at Paris Fashion Week.

In an interview with L’Officiel, the Grammy-winning rapper said that she had stomach troubles leading up to her appearance, in which she wore 30,000 hand-placed Swarovski crystals.

Doja Cat explained that she created the all-red, sequined viral look because she “wanted to do something really major” for the Schiaparelli presentation. She went on to say that she was “in love” with the sketches of the mind-blowing ensemble that were sent to her ahead of time.

“I got to Paris, and I did a few shows before Schiaparelli. Super smooth, super easy, fun, loved it. I didn’t realize I had to get up at four in the morning [the day of the show] to get there by five or something,” she explained, thinking back on the moments before her epic metamorphosis. “So we get there, and I didn’t realize till I sat down in the chair that I had gastroenteritis. So I had gotten super ill.”

While preparing for the big event in January, the “Woman” singer revealed she began to feel “the twirling of a knife” inside her tummy.

She praised the “sweet” glam staff for their support during the unexpected occasion, notably famed makeup artist Pat McGrath, who “kept on giving me ginger ale and all these different things to help settle my stomach.”

“The whole crew was so sweet. The whole glam team was so understanding and so sensitive and kind. It was great and very professional,” Doja Cat continued. “I was trying to joke around and make light of the situation, but as time progressed, it only got worse.”

She added, “My stomach felt like there was a blade in it, and it was just spinning 100 miles per hour. I never felt pain worse than that — and on one of the most important days of my life!”

Fighting off the pain, Doja Cat was able to let the team finish dressing her up in the tedious process.

“So I had my arms out, I was sitting down, and I had underwear and a bandeau on,” Doja Cat said, explaining how the team worked on her getup. “They started with a layer of red paint, and they just covered me in that and then a layer of glue, and then I think they dusted glitter on top. Then the crystals.”

After enduring pain and distress for the nearly five hours it took to finish getting ready, the 27-year-old fashionista was able to carry out the memorable look.

Her impressive fortitude isn’t a surprise as she insisted she’s “down to sacrifice my comfort” and will “do anything for that fantasy that I have in my head.”

When asked if it was worth it, Doja replied “definitely,” adding, “I’m very, very proud of it.”

The Los Angeles native is no stranger to wearing legendary fashion ensembles at Paris Fashion Week.

For a different look, she painted herself gold and wore dramatic extraterrestrial-style blue-and-white makeup last year.
