Because Someone Had To, Doja Cat And Jared Leto Showed Up To The Met Gala As Choupette Lagerfeld
Karl Lagerfeld’s pampered pussy Choupette Lagerfeld was, of course, invited to the Met Gala’s tribute to him. But like other A-listers such as Beyonce and Lady Gaga, Choupette decided to stay her ass at home instead of mingling with lessers. But of course, someone had to represent Choupette at the Met Gala. And Dominique is now a certified SLYCIC because in her post about Choupette turning down an invite to the Met Gala, she guessed that both Jared Leto and Doja Cat would show up in Choupette cosplay, and she was right! But since Jared Leto is a serious method thespian, I’m sure he got into character by lapping up milk and sniffing his own ass (although he’s always doing that).
For her first-ever Met Gala attendance, Doja Cat spotlit the “Cat” in Doja Cat with her “appurrance” in an anthropomorphic cat ensemble, wearing high-grade cat make-up like she just came from the set of Cats The Musical. via Harper’s Bazaar:
Her hooded gown, by Oscar de la Renta, included cat ears on the hood, plus silver sequins, a backless feature, and a mermaid silhouette that extended into a white feathered train. Over 5,000 hours of work went into creating the dazzling piece, which includes 350,000 silver and white bugle beads
To accessorize, she wore a diamond headpiece underneath the hood and a delicate diamond chain arm cuff. Doja’s glam was also equally cat-ified; the Grammy winner had appropriately worn dramatic black cat eyeliner and buffed up her nose to resemble a feline’s.
When Doja Cat committed to this look, she wasn’t kitten around. While being interviewed by influencer Emma Chamberlain, Doja entrusted Emma with the groundbreaking interview of a lifetime as she responded to Emma’s questions with thought-provoking answers like, “mew” and “meow.” Profound!

Then Jared Leto one-upped Doja Cat when he showed up to the scene completely unrecognizable in a hyper-realistic mascot costume. Photographers were confused as fuck wondering, in a sea of Hollywood nut-jobs, who could possibly be the giant cat furry? It was Jared who should’ve kept the Choupette head on! According to Page Six:
Leto, 51, later changed into a black ensemble, featuring a silver neckline. He paired the look with a black cape that showcased white shoulder pads.
The “Suicide Squad” star finished his second look off with black gloves and a smoky eye.

Karl’s ghost is probably watching all this through his black sunglasses up in heaven, scoffing at the mere attempt of trying to encapsulate the grandeur of his jet-setting kitty muse, but hey- they sure tried!
