Her planet, Her rules
Doja Cat is one of few artists who not only went viral, but continues to stay viral with her work. With her outrageous vocals, witty lyrics, and smooth style, there is no question why she has become a popular artist in such a short amount of time.
Born as Amala Zandile Dlamini, the Los Angeles native started releasing songs on Soundcloud in her teens. Her rise to fame started with the release of “Mooo!”, a parody track about cows. The hilarious track was just the first of many of Doja’s songs to go viral and set her apart from other artists.
Since then she has released two albums, Hot Pink and Planet Her, and has become a household name. Her style has also seriously upgraded from the “Mooo!” cow print two-piece into high designer fashion.
Doja’s personality is very over-the-top, and it is reflected through her clothing. Her overall style is very avant-garde and not like any other artist out there. Her wardrobe includes elements of Y2K, modern streetwear fashion, and kawaii girl, but features many different types of styles.
Standout items in her wardrobe include plunge dresses, high-waisted bottoms, and cutout bodysuits. However, the most notable go-to look for Doja is a matching set. Whether it is a bandeau top and bell-bottom pants, or a cutout top and skirt set, it is simple, but she always looks put together.
Doja is also known for putting her own twist on iconic decade fashion. In her music video for “Say So”, the singer showed off retro-glam outfits inspired by ’70s disco. Some ‘fits include a modern version of Sonny and Cher’s dress complete with fringe and butterflies, a colorful knit suede dress, and a bedazzled, sheer jumpsuit.
The best part of Doja’s style is that she is not afraid to experiment. Any fabric, print, or cut, Doja has tried it and rocked it. This is especially true during her current Planet Her era, which launches Doja’s style even more out of this world. Recent performance looks include an all-leather, structured bodysuit and a translucent bodysuit with pink detailing and a low neck plunge.
The singer also released a collection with Pretty Little Thing that features her outlandish style tailored to every day and night streetwear. The different combination of prints and fabrics gives off a modern disco theme, staying true to Doja’s brand. It includes true favorites such as plunge neckline tops, exotic prints, and matching set items.
With three studio albums and three Grammy nominations, the singer will not be slowing down anytime soon. It is safe to say that Doja Cat will be staying on trend with her music and setting the trends with her fashion.
