It was a big night for Doja Cat at Sunday night’s American Music Awards as she won New Artist of the Year, beating Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Baby, Roddy Ricch, Lewis Capaldi and DaBaby. The 25-year-old breakout star, who also won for Favorite Female Artist Soul/R&B, was dressed for the occasion in a Vivienne Westwood gown styled by her creative director and stylist Brett Nelson.

WWD chatted with Nelson over e-mail on Sunday night for the behind-the-scenes take on Doja Cat’s look.
