Doja Cat has a style of her own and she looks good and confident in practically everything.
Let’s see which great outfit she managed to pull off for the American Music Awards 2020, held at the Microsoft Theater on November 22, 2020 in Los Angeles, California.
For the event, the singer wore an Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood draped asymmetric corset dress with exaggerated pannier detail in brown silk moiree from the Fall 2020 Ready-to-Wear collection, paired with purple Elevated Ghillie faux croc lace up platforms.

Doja‘s Vivienne Westwood shoes were worn for the red carpet pre-victory, she then switched to a Stuart Weitzman pair of platform sandals embellished with crystals by The Disco Daddy.
She accessorized her look with a variety of jewelry including: a Karma El Khalil Unicorn ring, different ones from Svetlana Lazar, Jared Lehr earrings and rings for the post-victory red carpet and a Mariella Pilato necklace among others.
Her stylist/costume designer Brett Alan Nelson had a very interesting interview with WWD.com, in which he explained how the collaboration came to be: “Doja and I have always tried to create looks that are different and catch people’s eye, even if it’s not the “norm”— everyone expects a sexy mesh dress with crystals. The Westwood team reached out to me directly about dressing Doja for future events and I knew in that moment I wanted the two dresses that she wore tonight. I have loved Vivienne Westwood since I was quite young. She is the original punk— and ever since Andreas [Kronthaler] has been doing his collection under the label I have been obsessed.”
He also explained how difficult it was at the beginning to secure clothes from big established designers and how it is way easier now: “She’s always down to try something new. Doja is still technically a “new artist,” so in the past it’s been difficult to lock in those “big name designers”—these showrooms have such a tight list of who they “can” and “cannot” dress. But anyone who knows me well enough knows that no is not an answer for me—there is always a way. I always knew I wanted to grab the attention of these big brands and I had a plan on how to do it. We have had such a huge year and finally these brands are starting to notice her fashion. Most of these designers are huge fans of her music, so now people know it’s much more than a costume. She is sexy, her body is natural and she honestly can wear anything.”
