Doja Cat Wears a Wet White T-Shirt to the Met Gala

Doja Cat loves an unexpected fashion moment, and her latest Met Gala look was no exception.

For fashion’s biggest night of 2024, tonight at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, the “Demons” rapper wore a white gown—or, some might say, a maxi-length wet T-shirt—by Vetements. She paired the look with standout glam that included glittery painted teardrops falling from her smoky eye look, and flawless skin, and opted to wear her natural hair in a clean buzz cut.

While some may have considered Doja Cat’s carpet look as wildly off theme, there was a deeper reason she chose to wear the simple piece for the event.

“I know that people are going to do flowers, but my flower of choice is the most-used flower. And it’s cotton,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “I wanted to do a white T-shirt, also because a white T-shirt is timeless. And it felt very poetic to choose this,” she continued. “I knew it wasn’t going to blend in too much, and I don’t really like to blend in.”

Earlier in the evening, while leaving the Mark Hotel, the rapper posed alongside Vetements creative director Guram Gvasalia in nothing but a white towel across her body and atop her head, acrylic platform pumps, and diamond necklace.

Ahead of tonight’s gala, Doja Cat was teasing a dramatic red-carpet moment for fans. The rapper was photographed around New York City with Gvasalia, sporting outfits including a carefully draped bed-comforter-esque gown and a Saran Wrap–inspired two-piece set. On Sunday night, at a pre–Met Gala party, she wore a pleather cape with nothing underneath but a thong and sheer tights.

In her cover story last year for Harper’s Bazaar Icons issue, the musician shared how experimenting with fashion is an extension of how she presents herself as an artist.

“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,” she said. “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.”
