Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and other celebrities have amazed their fans with outfit choices in the past
Doja Cat made headlines on Sunday when she underwent six outfit changes at the 2021 MTV VMAs.
However, the number of costume changes isn’t what people were talking about. The 25-year-old musician started the night in an outfit designed by Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood.
Things escalated quickly as she put on a worm-looking outfit, a dress wearing a headdress and an interesting pair of shoes to end the night.
The star wore several conversation-sparking pieces; A worm dress, a Vivienne Westwood chair accessory and clawfoot shoes designed by AVAVAV.
While Doja Kat looked comfortable in her looks, her stylist revealed that she almost didn’t go through with the Thom Browne-designed worm look.
“Well, it’s funny ’cause” [Doja] At first it was like, ‘I’m obsessed with this. I want to wear it.’ And then the day before the show, she got a little nervous and she was like, ‘I don’t know if that’s right,’” Brett Alan Nelson told Entertainment Tonight. “And then we had to show the day and I was like, ‘We have to do this look.’ And she’s like, ‘I know, it’s perfect.’ And this is one of them that looks like a chair hat. Like Thom Browne is another designer who can do beautiful art like clothing.”

Musician Björk was ridiculed for his fashion choices at the 2001 Academy Awards. The star wore the now-iconic swan dress designed by Marjan Pezowski.
Björk has revealed that the costume was not worn as a PR stunt, but as a tribute to film director Busby Berkeley.
“I don’t watch many Hollywood movies, and being from Iceland, it’s pretty accidental what happens there,” Björk has said of the organization, according to W Magazine. “Most Hollywood movies I watch are Busby Berkeley musicals and what is that movie called with all the swimming? Esther Williams, that sort of thing, so I thought it would be very appropriate to wear a swan.”
“I guess they don’t do those things anymore, right? But it was a tribute to Busby Berkeley and that kind of elegance.”

Lady Gaga made headlines in 2010 when she accepted the award for Video of the Year at the MTV VMAs wearing a meat dress. The gown was designed by Frank Fernandez and was a contribution of Lady Gaga in protest of the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.
“It’s definitely no disrespect to anyone who is vegetarian or vegan,” Gaga told Ellen DeGeneres in a post show interview those days.
“As you know, I am the most judgment-free human being on earth,” she explained. “There are many interpretations of this, but for me tonight it is [saying], ‘If we do not stand up for our faith, if we do not fight for our rights, very soon we are going to have as many rights as we have on flesh on our bones.’”
