If for some reason you missed the 2023 Met Gala on May 1, let us fill you in on the big beauty moments that everyone can’t stop talking about. First, the theme was “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty”, paying homage to the late designer. Then Lil Nas X gave the Ice Prince realism with a full load of paint and crystals, courtesy of Pat McGrath. Florence Pugh showed off a fresh buzz cut, which was complemented by a beautiful headpiece. But one of the hands down best moments of the evening was when Doja Cat appeared on the red carpet as Choupette, Lagerfeld’s cat.

No, we’re not just talking cat ears and fuzzy paws. The rapper donned full cat facial prosthetics and even answered a few interview questions posed to her with a simple “meow.” Created by special effects makeup artist Malina Stearns, it took a few tries to get the mold right before the star wore it. “Big shout out to @mannylemusfx for handling the molds on this and pouring the clay last minute so I could reshape and make some changes,” Stearns’ caption read, in part. “Thanks to my friend @jackeffects who was able to smooth out the edges for me after the sculpture drifted away from its original cast while I was in South America.” On the night of the gala, after the mold was successfully applied, it took another four hours of glamor to create the look we saw on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Doja Cat completed the look with a “claw” french manicure and an Oscar de la Renta dress that sparkled with every step she took. It’s not often we see facial prosthetics on red carpets as they take a notoriously long time to complete, but this venture was worth it in our opinion. If anyone could do it, it would be Doja Cat – the same person who wore 30,000 Swarovski crystals during Paris Couture Week.
