Doja Cat sure knows how to grab your attention!

The "Paint the Town Red" rapper, 27, clad herself in the ultimate skin-baring dress by Monse at the 2023 MTV VMAs. The barely there custom design was made up of a gossamer cobweb-like fabric that exposed her nipples and cheeky nude thong underneath.

She teamed the sexy number with see-through high heels, icy silver eyeshadow — complete with spidery lashes — and her platinum blonde buzz cut.

This latest carpet appearance follows Doja Cat’s recent publicized commentary on her fashion choices — and her fans' reactions to them.

“My theory is that if someone has never met me in real life, then, subconsciously, I’m not real to them,” she said in a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar. “They think that person belongs to them in some sense. And when that person changes drastically, there is a shock response that is almost uncontrollable.”
