Arca is making major moves at Paris Fashion Week. The Venezuelan superstar recently stomped the runway for Jean Paul Gaultier and the internet raved is here for her fashion icon moment.

Arca is the artistic name of Alejandra Ghersi Rodríguez. As an artist and producer who identifies as non-binary and a trans woman, she has blazed a trail for both the LGBTQ+ community and Latines in the electronic music space. Arca is also known for her fierce outfits from her DJ sets and performances around the world. She got to shine as a trendsetter in fashion during a surprise appearance on a Paris runway.

Many stars, artists, and designers collided in France for Paris Fashion Week. Those who were in attendance at the Jean Paul Gaultier by Nicolas Di Felice Fall 2024 Couture show got to see Arca in another light. She looked stunning as she walked down the catwalk in a black sheer outfit by Gaultier. The phone cameras in the front rows were on Arca as she served face during her big Paris Fashion Week moment.

The video of Arca walking in the Jean Paul Gaultier by Nicolas Di Felice Fall 2024 Couture show was shared all over the internet. Many people online were raving in Spanish and English about her strut on the catwalk. On X, one person wrote, “body face walk outfit it’s all there.” Another person added, “SHE IS THE MOMENT!!!!!” 

In a show of Venezuelan pride, another person shared a meme under Arca’s video that talked about the beauty of the women from that country. 

Last year, Arca was spotted with Madonna. The queen of pop brought her out as a special guest during the “Vogue” segment of her concert in Barcelona in November. Madonna’s Celebration Tour wrapped up last month with a historic show in Brazil.
