Doja Cat’s bold glam at last night’s Grammys was absolutely one to remember as the three-time nominee hit the red carpet with a look that she called, “out there.”
“I like something that’s out there,” the singer told E! News. “I have been very toned down lately. This is like something I have always wanted to do.”
Designer by Roberto Cavalli, the gown was a unique mix of a leather motorcycle jacket on top and an array of feathers as the skirt, making quite the fashion statement for Doja’s red carpet debut for the annual event. ”
“I saw this, there’s this little detail on the jacket that’s a cat claw and I feel like that is fully encompassing, that is creating — this is what I want to be,” she continued. “The cat lady, let me be that.”
While her outfit absolutely made a major fashion statement, it was her hair and makeup that truly set the look off. Styled by hairstylist Jared Henderson, Doja’s modern-day mullet was created by Jared’s use of Joico’s NEWLY launched and renovated stylers. He took to his Instagram page to show off the completed look, simply captioning the photo “Grammys 2021.”
As for her makeup, the “Say So” singer rocked a grungy and dramatic smokey eye to match the bold aesthetics of her gown while the rest of her face looked radiant and natural. Popular MUA Ernesto Casillas, who’s also known for working with celebrities like Tiffany Haddish and SZA, was responsible for painting Doja’s gorgeous face last night, using Shiseido’s newly launched Synchro Skin Radiant Lifting Foundation to help make her skin shine.
