Ziwe Fumudoh, mononymous known as Ziwe, made her runway debut at Mugler’s fall 2023 show during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week.
The “Ziwe” host joined the star-studded cast of models singers and television personalities walking for the French design house from Venezuelan musician Arca to Mugler runway regular Dominique Jackson.
Before her descent down the runway, Ziwe acted as a pseudo emcee, grabbing a mic and calling upon former “Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills” star Lisa Rinna who sat in the crowd. The brief back-and-forth exchange saw Ziwe referencing iconic quotes from the reality show, asking Rinna, “Are you ready to own it, baby?”
Ziwe dressed down in an all-black lace ensemble comprised of a bustier top along with a matching corset and black denim micro miniskirt.
The fashionista wore black lace gloves that traveled the length of her forearms and across her chest.
Ziwe wore her long black hair back in a sleek ponytail and sported vampy black makeup comprised of smokey lids and a black vinyl lip.
On the footwear front, Ziwe slipped into black leather boots. The style featured pointed toes and an appealing glossy patent leather finish. The boots’ slim fit and sleek leather silhouette transitioned into what appeared to be stiletto-style heels that ranged around 3 to 4 inches in height for a little boost.
The runway show marked Mugler’s return to Paris Fashion Week after a three-year hiatus. Paloma Elsesser, Amber Valletta, Eva Herzigova and Debra Shaw were also featured in the show. Christine Quinn, Charli XCX and Rinna were sitting front row.
