If there’s anyone who will dare to go there at a public event, it’s Doja Cat, who started the year by covering herself in red body paint and 30,000 Swarovski crystals for Schiaparelli’s Paris fashion week show in January.
For the MTV VMAs on Tuesday in New Jersey, Doja had another major fashion moment, although one that was a little less intense than January’s. The singer was outfitted in a white transparent, spider web-style dress on the red carpet. Fall’s spooky season aesthetic has truly begun:
Doja is up for Artist of the Year at the MTV VMAs, while her music video for “Attention” is nominated for Video of the Year, Best Direction, and Best Art Direction. Her single with Post Malone, “I Like You (A Happier Song),” is also nominated for Best Collaboration.
Doja spoke to Harper’s Bazaar in an interview released this August about creating her image these days, addressing how she’s been going eccentric on purpose with her style. With visuals generally, “I am taking more control over filming and photography,” she said. “I’m in this kind of chaotic place right now when it comes to fashion, where I’ve just been going into my closet and picking out the most random, weird, not-fitting thing to mix with another thing that does not really fit. It’s like mashed potatoes. But I’m embracing that. It’s a little punk. It’s experimental for sure. It’s very manic. But I am going in a darker direction when it comes to visuals and fashion. I have a lot of pent-up feelings and anger, and I want to express it with beauty. I’ve been playing with a lot of prosthetics lately.”
