Doja Cat’s incredibly innovative red-carpet style is taking on the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards.
Tonight, the rapper arrived at New Jersey’s Prudential Center wearing an Apocene dress that resembles ivory cobwebs. The sparse knit piece featured tendrils of white fabric draping across her body in spiral orb shapes, in a style not dissimilar to spiderwebs. Underneath the revealing look, she wore a pair of nude underwear.
To complete the ensemble, Doja added see-through pointed-toe pumps, diamond chandelier earrings, and glittering wraparound silver bracelets. As for her glam, she opted for bold white eye shadow, arched thin eyebrows (à la the 1920s), and a crimson manicure.
Doja is one of tonight’s most-nominated artists, earning five nominations in the categories of Video of the Year, Artist of the Year, Best Collaboration, Best Direction, and Best Art Direction. She will also take the stage as one of this evening’s performers.
“It’s kind of an intro to what’s to come,” she said of “Attention,” the record’s first single. “This new album is more introspective, but I’m not leaning so hard into that to where it becomes boring. So I want to give stories and bops. It’s a nice mixture of both. I think this project is a really fun canvas for me to play with my rap skills and talk about what’s going on in my life. But I’m not abandoning who I was and what I know about pop and singing and that aspect of music.”
She also talked about what she wants to do next in her game-changing career.
“There are other kinds of projects I want to branch out into. I want to make clothing, dabble in makeup. I want to explore acting,” she said. “I would love to do movies that I believe in. I would have to stop the music for a minute. But I would be down to immerse myself in acting for a certain period of time.”
