Oscars 2019: Billy Porter Wins The Red Carpet In Stunning Tuxedo Dress
Pose star Billy Porter stepped out onto the Oscars red carpet wearing a velvet tuxedo gown, and it's incredible...
The actor and singer left onlookers speechless when he arrived at the 91st Academy Awards wearing a Christian Siriano tuxedo dress like nothing else we've ever seen before.
But, Billy's fierce outfit choice was more than just a fashion statement, as the 49-year-old revealed his goal was to be "a walking piece of political art every time I show up - to challenge expectations."
Speaking to Vogue, Billy continued: "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.
"People are going to be really uncomfortable with my black ass in a ball gown, but it's not anybody's business but mine."
It's fair to say Billy's tuxedo dress really did get people talking and we are absolutely living for it...
I love that @CSiriano is here to dress every body in however they want to express themselves. And Billy Porter is here to slay. What a gorgeous tuxeduo - I bet this is a trend in weddings now. https://t.co/RDDotM8kyQ
