Feline theme dominate this year’s Met Gala red carpet

Jared Leto is known for his wild Met Gala looks. We all remember when he brought a second head to the event in 2019. The House of Gucci actor walked the red carpet this year wearing a full white, furry cat outfit. The outfit resembled Karl Lagerfeld’s cat, Choupette, complete with light blue eyes and a pink nose.

Jared kept his face hidden under the large cat mask until he walked inside the venue. After which he took off the mask and clicked pictures for the media. He later took off the cat outfit to reveal a second outfit for the night. A black ensemble, including a bedazzled cape, blouse, pleated skirt, and black trousers. The Little Things actor is portraying Karl Lagerfeld in an upcoming biopic, which he is also producing. He told E! News:

“I’m playing Karl in a film. The first time I met him, I said to him, ‘You know, one day I’ve got to be you on film.’ That he said to me, ‘Only you, my love. Only you.'”

Pop singer Doja Cat took a similar route with her cat makeup and pointy ears. Doja wore a hooded gown by Oscar de la Renta that had cat ears on the hood. The sparkly backless gown had a mermaid fit, with a short feather train. The dress took 5,000 hours of work and showcased 350,000 silver and white bugle beads.

Doja completed her Met Gala look with head jewelry and sharp, cat-like nails. To enhance her feline appearance, she even adorned a prosthetic snout.

Lil Nas X also decided to pay tribute to Choupette in his silver getup. The Grammy winning-musician arrived at the Metropolitan Museum of Art covered in silver bodypaint, embellished with Swarovski crystals and pearls. The Montero singer dared it all in silver boots, a pair of silver underwear, and a jeweled cat mask. He completed his look with long stiletto nails covered in sparkle.

Several other celebrities also integrated the celebrity cat into their outfits. James Corden, for example, matched the Choupette eye with his blue suit, while singer Janelle Monae carried a white cat purse. Additionally, Chloe Fineman accessorized her outfit with a pink bejeweled cat handbag.
