Musician Doja Cat, who’s nominated for three individual Grammy Awards this year, stepped onto tonight’s red carpet ready to shock and awe. For her outfit, the star wore a custom Roberto Cavalli dress like nothing you’ve seen before: a leather biker jacket-esque top zipped down to her belly button with a skirt adorned with bright-green feathers. But even more surprising than the mixed-material gown was the “Say So” singer’s hair, styled in a classic mullet.
For the Grammys glam, Doja Cat worked with LA-based hairstylist Jay Henderson, who goes by JStayReady on Instagram, and makeup artist Ernesto Casillas, who calls the aesthetic a “super smoky, grungy look.”
“When we saw the gorgeous custom Cavalli gown, we all agreed that the glam would have an edge to it,” explained Casillas in a press release provided to Refinery29 via email. “We wanted an element of rock and roll, and since it’s the Grammys, it’s not a time to play it safe. Doja is a creative person and always collaborates with Jay and I on the look. Her makeup was directly inspired by the beautiful hair that Jay styled for her.”
Together, the dark smoky eye and choppy mullet (which is likely a wig) definitely fit Doja Cat’s overall rock n’ roll look. Whether or not she takes home awards in her three categories of nomination — Best New Artist, Best Record, and Best Pop Solo Performance — what’s clear is that, in terms of ensemble, the star has certainly put it all out there.
