Doja Cat, whose real name is Amala Zandile Dlamini, showed up to her first ever 2023 Met Gala in a very surprising outfit!

The singer, 27, broke the internet when she channeled Karl Lagerfeld's beloved cat Choupette.

Doja wore a silver sparkly dress, but her face looked exactly like a cat with all the makeup and prosthetics.

Meanwhile, Doja's stylist Brett Alan Nelson said, “It makes no sense for anyone to go as Karl’s cat more than Doja Cat."

“Amala and I were very clear that we didn’t want it to feel like a costume, and when you’re adding that element of prosthetics, you’re riding a very fine line,” Alan Nelson explained of working with the prosthetic artist Malina Stearns to figure out the look.

“She’s not furry, but I had images of Choupette as references,” Stearn added.

A third person added, "SHES COMING TO THE GALA."

This is hardly the first time Doja showed off an interesting look. While in Paris, she wore a red beaded outfit and revealed more details about the frock.

"My stylist Brett Alan Nelson and I wanted to do something really major for fashion week. I love Schiaparelli, and so anytime Brett brings Schiaparelli, I’m 100 percent in. But he was like, “Yeah, Schiaparelli wants to do something with you.” And before he could finish his sentence, I was like, 'Yes.' There are sketches, and everything he’s sending, I love them. I fall in love. 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. 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," she admitted to L'Officel USA.
