Doja Cat Absolutely Nailed This Controversial Trend on the Grammys Red Carpet

You'd think wearing eyelashes as a mustache is the most controversial outfit Doja Cat could have worn this year so far, but to no one's surprise, she's shocked us all again. 

The rapper and singer, who's nominated for five awards tonight, stepped out on the Grammys red carpet wearing a high-shine latex gown complete with skin-tight opera gloves and vampy makeup. Her look, orchestrated by none other than Atelier Versace high priestess of dominatrix dressing herself Donatella Versace, kicked off the night. Doja Cat, who was no doubt one of the night's most anticipated arrivals, is known for her over-the-top looks and eclectic sense of style (30,000 red crystals—need I say more?). It's dopamine dressing at its finest for the star.

While we can't help but love the tight latex look Doja Cat turned up in, the high-shine style has the internet divided. By all means, latex is sometimes harder to pull off than it is to pull off (in most instances, the fabric is known for its famous appearances in burlesque clubs or high-fashion runways), but personally, I'm solidly in the Team Doja category of this fashion debate. I'm finding myself reaching for my pair of high-power liquid leggings more and more thanks to the newfound legging trend that celebrities have been loving as of late. To no one's surprise, Doja Cat took it to the next level tonight.
