You’ve never seen a kitty cat costume with this many carats before.

The sighting: Singer Doja Cat attended her first Met Gala this year and made a true splash by dressing like Karl Lagerfeld’s beloved cat, Choupette. She wasn’t the only attendee to make a sartorial reference to the famous feline, but she did it best.

The jewels: You’ve never seen a kitty cat costume with this many carats before!

Doja Cat is decked out in Messika diamonds. Her headpiece includes a 17 carat pear-shaped diamond and was designed personally by the brand’s artistic director, Valerie Messika. It’s a little tricky to see in photos, but the singer is also wearing a custom armband high on her right arm that features two more large pear shaped diamonds.

In addition to the custom headpiece and armband, Doja Cat is wearing large bracelets and at least four rings from different Messika High Jewellery Collections.

The trends: Is anything a trend when it’s part of a cat costume? When it’s this stylish, the answer is yes.

Doja Cat was not the only celeb to wear a necklace as a diadem, matched cuff bracelets, or an arm band high on the arm. Cardi B also wore a necklace across her forehead and even paired it with matched bracelets. Naomi Campbell also wore an arm band high on her arm.

A necklace across the forehead won’t be relevant for most occasions, but could work as bridal or prom inspo.

What do we think? It is objectively silly to show up to a high profile fashion event dressed as a cat. It’s not just the cat ears – Doja Cat is even rocking face paint and whiskers, and she gave several interviews where she only meowed. But in my opinion, the subtlety of the cat ears and the extreme seriousness of the jewelry takes this ensemble from comical to couture.

These diamonds are no joke. The headpiece, the arm band, the matching cuff bracelets! Everywhere you look, there are more exceptional diamonds. They jazz up the relatively simple gown and make absolutely clear to anyone watching that she’s not just a cat, she’s a high fashion feline.

Also, you should know that Doja Cat wore a whole different set of cat ears as part of her Met Gala afterparty ensemble. When Doja does a bit, she commits.

Judgement: 16/10 for mixing glamour and humor with panache.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson: “They Feel Like Family”

Newton’s Jewelers in Fort Smith, Ark., was a true institution. But after being at the helm for most of his life, owner (and descendent of the original founder) Kelly Newton decided it was time to retire. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale. “I’ve known the owners of Wilkerson for a long, long time. I felt at home with them,” he says. The final retirement sale was just a “blast” and the Wilkerson sales team made it so very simple and straightforward, says Newton. Would he recommend Wilkerson to others? Absolutely. “They’ve done incredible work,” says Newton. “They feel like family.”
