Billy Porter arrived at the Oscars 2019 Red Carpet and left so many gasping for air as swept the red carpet with his voluminous tuxedo gown and we ought to admit that Porter deserved the golden trophy for his outfit alone.
Styled by Sam Ratelle, the Pose actor stunned in a Christian Siriano's masterpiece which featured silk lapels, a black bow tie and a ball skirt. To add a little bling to his outfit, he accessorised the look with jewelry by Oscar Heyman and Bros.
In an interview with Vogue, Billy spoke about his sartorial choice and said, "[At the first fitting in the gown,] I felt alive. I felt free. And open, and radiant. And beautiful! Which has not always been the case for me."
