Her most iconic look yet

Few musicians take fashion risks like Doja Cat. That The planet her the rapper, born Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini, laid relatively low until 2018 when her single “Mooo!” went viral on YouTube. Since then, her creative spirit and zany humor have fueled her style and helped her blossom into a full-fledged star.


“Not only has her style evolved from buying costumes on Amazon, but she personally evolves every day into an even more beautiful person than she already was,” her longtime stylist, Brett Nelson, told Women’s clothing daily in 2020. “She learns about fashion every day and learns to appreciate it as an art.”


He continued:Doja takes risks and looks beautiful in everything. She is a brand. She is different and absolutely amazing.”


From sculptural ensembles to futuristic looks, here’s a look back at some of Doja Cat’s best fashion moments.
