ManCrush: Billy Porter
Billy Porter has set the bar very high for himself when it comes to serving looks on the red carpet, but every time he somehow manages to find a way to take it next-level.
Last night’s Oscars were no exception.
There were several outfit changes over the course of the night, but for the red carpet Porter wore a custom two-piece by British designer Giles Deacon, which consisted of a 24-carat gold bodice accompanied by a flowing silk maxi-skirt – finished off with some custom Jimmy Choo shoes.
Who is Billy Porter?
Born in 1969 and raised in Pittsburgh, Billy Porter has paid his dues on Broadway with a career spanning decades.
It was his performance in the 2013 Broadway production of Kinky Boots that really got him noticed by the wider world – he won a Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical.
He’s been dominating our screens with his role in Pose, and he’s been able to use that platform to establish himself as a triple-threat performer with plenty to say and a talent for pulling focus.
