Oscars night is just beginning, but one of the early arrivals already set the bar pretty high. Billy Porter wore a custom Christian Siriano tuxedo gown that quickly went viral, and we’re here for the head-turning statement. The Pose actor is an ABC red carpet correspondent for the Oscars this year, alongside Ashley Graham and Elaine Welteroth, so expect his velvet gown to get plenty of airtime.
“What an honor it was to create this moment,” Siriano tweeted alongside a video of Porter twirling on the red carpet. Of course, Siriano is no stranger to the red carpet and has created custom looks for the likes of Lady Gaga, Amy Adams, Janelle Monáe, Leslie Jones, and scores of other celebrities.
