Doja Cat Laces Into Leather Corset Dress & Boots With Sam Smith at Grammy Awards 2023

Doja Cat took a turn for the rebellious at the 2023 Grammy Awards tonight.

The “Moo” singer posed with Smith in a custom brown leather dress by Knwls. Styled by Brett Alan Nelson, her ensemble featured a strapless silhouette with a faded, worn appearance — similar to the stone-washed textures of the early 2000s — and a split neckline.

Further accentuating the piece was a stitch-paneled corset bodice, lace-up sides trimmed with silver studs, and a cut-and-sew-style train that dragged on the ground.

Doja Cat’s outfit was finished with thick silver hoop earrings, a thin lock-shaped pendant necklace and numerous rings and layered curved silver bangles. Her footwear — though it couldn’t be seen — encompassed a matching pair of brown leather knee-high boots, as seen on Instagram. The set was complete with pointed toes, lace-up shafts and curved dark brown heels for a bohemian finish.

Earlier on the evening, Cat modeled a black Versace latex dress on the red carpet, with a black pixie cut.

Smith, meanwhile, wore a vibrant red cape-like Valentino dress and choker, seen on their entrance to the awards with Kim Petras. Earlier in the ceremony, Smith also made history in the Best Pop Dua/Group Collaboration category as the first non-binary individual to win a Grammy alongside Petras — also the first transgender woman to win in the category — for their song “Unholy,” which they’ll perform together this evening.
