The category is awards show realness, and Billy Porter has once again proven that the red carpet is a territory over which he continues to reign victorious.
The Pose star is a dependable favorite for fashion lovers at any major entertainment event, and the 92nd Annual Academy Awards are no exception to the rule. On Sunday night (Feb. 9), Porter hit the Oscars red carpet in one of his most blindingly-bright looks yet, which consisted of a bodice seemingly constructed from 24-karat feathers, a voluminous ballgown skirt with an elaborate tapestry print in sunset shades, and gold platform lace-up boots.
Regal, incendiary, plenty of metallic sheen to go around thanks to that feathery feel — it’s another red carpet showing for Porter that earns high marks for boldness, and surely an outfit that will set him apart from his fellow co-hosts of ABC’s official Oscars pre-show, which starts at 6:30 E.T./3:30 P.T.
Take a closer look at Porter’s head-to-toe Oscars ensemble below.
