Billy Porter Stuns Everyone With His Fashion Choices: Is He a Red-Carpet God(ess)?

by Tracy Finke

Billy Porter is shocking and delighting people around the globe with his unusual fashion choices for months now. His glamorous outfits are talked about all world-wide, and this 50-year-old actor and singer gained the title of the Best dressed star on numerous red-carpet occasions.

The unofficial title of the best dressed at the 91st Oscar Award ceremony at the Dolby Theater in 2019 for the first time in history went to a man.

Ingenious Billy Porter appeared at the award in a hypnotic creation, a combination of a tuxedo and a lavish black plush gown. The dress that overshadows everyone else is signed by Christian Siriano. As the actor from the “Pose” and “American Horror Story” series and Tony Award-winner appeared among the first, he managed to make everyone talk only about him all night long.

As reporters joked, Porter blew everything away because he looked like a dignified and mysterious Victorian lady and her butler at the same time.

Breaking down all the fashion and gender stereotypes that, unfortunately, continue to shape our beliefs and behavior in everyday life, Billy won this Academy Award with a slogan that made him famous for in his current series “Pose” – “Category is: Having a Wedding to Yourself and LOVING IT “.

Porter told Vogue that the first dress rehearsal made him feel “free and alive than ever,” as if radiating.

“This look was interesting because it’s not drag. I’m not a drag queen, I’m a man in a dress. My goal is to be a walking piece of political art every time I show up. To challenge expectations. What is masculinity? What does that mean? Women show up every day in pants, but the minute a man wears a dress, the seas part”, he said to Vogue.

Billy Porter recently stated that he is not concerned by gender or “gay or straight” roles. “We’re seeing the change now. Look at me, I am the change. For 30 years, I have made it my life’s work to be this person standing right before you”, Porter told the PA news agency.

At the 77th Golden Globe Awards that was held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, Billy Porter was also the most talked-about actor. This unique creation is signed by designer Alex Vanassche, while the boots with the sparkling design were designed by Jimmy Chu, and as jewelry accessory, he selected pieces of the famous jewelry house “Tiffany & Co.”

“The world has gone absolutely mad and when we started to think about what I would wear today, the first major appearance of the new decade, we decided to go all white. The color symbolizes peace, hope, and new beginnings”, he wrote on his Instagram.

In Ms. Michel’s inclusive drama program, students from all walks of life are free to express themselves on stage.”
