Billy Porter In Christian Siriano – 2019 Oscars

Billy Porter In Christian Siriano - 2019 Oscars

Billy Porter commanded attention the minute he hit the 2019 Oscars red carpet on Sunday (February 24) in Hollywood, California.

The ‘Pose’ actor struck a Pose with a capital P in this hybrid Christian Siriano black velvet ball gown worn with a traditional tuxedo shirt and bow tie.

You had to smile at this variation on menswear-meets-women’s wear, which turns the trend on its head with a reverse aesthetic complete with voluminous proportions.

    It’s a lot of dress, no matter who is wearing it. I like the idea, but maybe a tad less skirt. Just think the ballgown was a bit too exaggerated, but then that might have been what he was going for. He gets points for being bold, love that fierceness expressed thru fashion!

    It’s an homage to Hector Extravaganza and I live

    Do I like this? No, it looks so pantomime. But he’s doing him so you have to give props for that.

    My jaw dropped when I saw this. Also FC that second picture!!!!???? His eyes are SMOLDERING. You couldn’t have picked anything better.

    This will take me a while to recover from. I hope he keeps this up.

    BEST DRESSED OF THE NIGHT! PERIOD.

    I love this from the waist up (fit is impeccable) and he is selling this look. There is something about the volume of the skirt and the centaur vibe that it gives off that I am not loving. I am thrilled to see Billy get his own post. I have loved most of his looks this awards season. This one is not favorite but at least, he gets profiled here so I am all in on that.

    Can’t believe I’m loving it! He’s got the charisma to sell it.

  22. Kimma February 25, 2019 at 3:33 am #

    PRAISE!!! Best dressed for this whole event! Nobody came close to touching him!

    Timothee chamalet who? Billy took men’s wear to the next level.

    He was trending on Twitter and this is why.
    This is how u shut it down.
    He was one of the first to arrive and he set the bar so high. Nobody came close.

    I would love to see Evan rachel wood in this.

    Work Werkz.

    This is pretty epic but I preferred his interview look more.

    I can appreciate that he did something different and the velvet is lush.

    This put a smile on my face when I saw it, he sent the rest of the males and most of the females home with this look. Legendary.

    HE SHUT IT DOWN!!! He CAME, SAW, AND DELIVERED, HONEY!
