Met Gala fans have been left speechless after Doja Cat came to this year's event dressed as - you've guessed it - an actual cat.
The annual fundraising gala, held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, is famous for guests’ red carpet arrival, where they’re expected to go all out, however weird it gets.
This year’s theme is Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty, serving as an ode to the late German fashion designer who passed away in February 2019.
And Doja Cat really nailed the brief, having turned up as what some believe must be Lagerfeld's famous pet cat Choupette.
"DOJA CAT AS CHOUPETTE!!!" one tweeted.
Many were left feeling completely baffled by the look.
"Wtf is Doja Cat doing?" one asked.
Someone else said: "Wtf is wrong with Doja cat there is no way in hell she came to the met Gala with her face like that."
But some people thought it was nothing short of 'iconic'.
One said: "Doja Cat is dressed like a cat with cat facial prosthetics AND cat claw nails at the Met Gala?? She commits to the look every time."
Another wrote: "I’m speechless, only doja cat and pull this off just sayin."
A third agreed: "Wtf did doja cat come as a f**king cat to the met gala this is iconic."
Just before being interviewed on the red carpet by Vogue, she was also seen in the wings having a cheeky vape - an image people found pretty amusing, given she was dressed as a human-sized cat.

For her first Met Gala, Doja Cat wore a silver skintight gown by Oscar de la Renta, the outfit featuring a feathered train, backless design and a built-in head covering with cat ears.
She paired this with cat-inspired prosthetics on her face, along with cat-eye make-up and a diamond hanging on her forehead.
Speaking to Vogue on the red carpet, the star said: “I feel relaxed here. Maybe it’s the beige. I feel very calm, it’s very nice."
She added a little 'miaow', just to hit the look home.
This is one in a long line of experimental looks from the Kiss Me More rapper.
For the Schiaparelli haute couture fashion show in Paris in January, Doja Cat covered her body in red paint and crystals, worn with a strapless red gown.
