Oscars 2019: Billy Porter's tux-gown gets a thumbs up; Twitter calls him 'the Ranveer Singh of Hollywood'
Billy Porter wore a Christian Siriano tuxedo gown to Oscars 2019.
Oscars 2019 saw many gorgeous red carpet looks, including Billy Porter's ensemble, which defied all fashion norms. The tuxedo jacket with a velvet gown was designed by Christian Siriano and the actor-singer paired it with sixinch high Rick Owen shoes.
"My goal is to be a walking piece of political art every time I show up. To challenge expectations. 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," Porter, who stars in Pose, wrote for Vogue.
