Their outfits pay homage to iconic late designer Karl Lagerfeld’s beloved white Burmese cat, Choupette. This year’s Met Gala theme is a tribute to Lagerfeld, who died in 2019. Lagerfeld was best known for his work as the creative director of luxury brand Chanel from from 1983 until his death in February 2019.

Doja Cat’s outfit was comprised of a jewelled dress with cat ears, while her face made up to give her a cat’s snout.
