Billy Porter SLAYED on the Oscars red carpet last night. The Pose star arrived in a tuxedo gown by Christian Siriano.
The velvety look featured silk lapels, white ruffled sleeves, a black bow tie, and a voluminous ball skirt.
And as if this one outfit wasn’t enough, Porter made a quick change into another look for his hosting duties (with Elaine Welteroth, Ashley Graham, and Maria Menounos). Ensemble number two was similarly tux-inspired, but featured wide leg pants and an embellished skinny tie. We love a good outfit reveal.
The outfit also held significant meaning for Porter. “I wanted to create a space where we can have a dialogue about the masculine and the feminine and everything in between,” the actor explained to E! News after the Oscars.
