Doja Cat, the American rapper and singer, is one of the cover girls for the latest CR Fashion Book, which comes out September 21 and is her biggest issue yet. The issue is themed “Front Row” and takes an irreverent approach to the frenetic energy, work and creativity required to navigate fashion month.
Inside the issue, Doja Cat is interviewed by Matthew M. Williams, Creative Director of Givenchy.
Discussing the evolution of her on-stage style, Doja Cat told Williams, “I just got so beat up all the time, like I was always getting glued to my face and my head. And carrying things that are so tight and heavy and destructive, so I’d like to find a way to be more relaxed about it. And if I’m going to go heavy and destructive, I’m just going to go even further.
Tom Kneller shot the covers for Doja Cat.
There are several editions of the issue which each have different covers. Other top models on the cover are Mariacarla Boscono, Abby Champion, Rayssa Mederios and Lina Werner, among others.
The issue explores the industry’s relationship with the metaverse, shows what happens behind the scenes, front-row diversification, the regimes of different industry roles, and what happens when the shows end for designers emerging, as well as a host of other themes that Carine Roitfeld, founder and editor-in-chief of CR Fashion Book, wanted to explore.
