Doja Cat has taken the Met Gala theme very seriously.
This year's theme is all about the late Karl Lagerfeld, the iconic fashion designer who was the creative director of the French fashion house Chanel for decades.
He died in 2019, and fashion's night of nights is honoring him by making the most famous celebrities on the planet right now pay homage to him.
Many have come in outfits that they have previously worn for Chanel or for Lagerfeld on runways, commercials or other projects.
Others have tried to look like him or do a spin on one of his gowns.
However, Doja has decided to go closer to home.
She's dressed up as his famous cat, Choupette, by wearing a silver skintight gown by Oscar de la Renta.
She topped off the look with some white cat ears and even styled her nose and mouth to look like a cat.
The singer managed to leave her hotel under tight security so no one could see her look.
However, she's now walked onto the red carpet and everyone has been blown away.
“I feel relaxed here. Maybe it’s the beige. I feel very calm, it’s very nice,” she told Vogue, signing off her interview with a soft 'meow'.
She was also seen on the red carpet vaping.
A representative for the cat (yes, an animal has a personal assistant) revealed earlier this week that the feline would not be walking the red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
The cat's official Instagram page said: "A million thanks to all of you my fans, animal lovers & Daddy's admirers. You have all shown the kindest enthusiasm and unconditional support, I say MERCI!
"Many people invited me to walk the red carpet of the #METGALA2023 in tribute to Daddy, but we preferred to stay peacefully & cozy at home.
"We pay tribute to my Daddy every day since his parting and we are very moved to see one more day dedicated to him. With love, forever Choupette."
