One can argue about the best and worst dresses at the ceremony “Oscar”, but one way for sure has broken all records in the comments! Actor Billy porter, who previously had very provocative outfits at this time and is deprived of the gift of speech all conservatives.
On the one hand (or rather one half) porter quite fit in the traditional male wardrobe, by choosing the tuxedo and tie, but instead pressed trousers from under his jacket could be seen a lush velvet skirt ball gown from Christian Siriano. Complement the image of jewelry from Oscar Heyman.
Followers actors appreciated the daring look.
It’s a masterpiece!
You all outdid!
You won in the category “Best outfit”!
In the network appeared photos of training of actor to enter the red carpet, showing the process of creating a memorable image. To wear this layered look helped celebrity stylists.
By the way, the combination of tuxedo and gown – it is also a tribute to the group of House of Xtravaganza, who became famous in the 80-ies and supporting the LGBT community and its founder Hector Valle.
In an interview with Vogue, porter also shared his thoughts about the selected outfit.
I’ve always loved fashion. My grandmother and mother have always been stylish women, and they brought me the love of fashion. But I was always limited to the expression of that love. When you are black and you are gay, your manhood all the time questioning. Many times I have faced homophobia in terms of my wardrobe. When I got my first contract with A&M Records I kept quiet.
I had to fit into the view that it is other people had about my appearance. When I got the role in the musical Kinky Boots, it was an unexpected experience. When I got up on heels, I felt more masculine than ever in my life. This allowed me to feel freer,
– told Billy.
Now my goal is to be a walking piece of political art every time I appear at events, and challenge the typical expectations. What is masculinity? Women every day, wear the pants, but it is worth man to appear in dress – sea overflows. I have the courage to shatter the status quo. I’m sure men would like to play more with the images on the red carpet. But our industry only masquerades as inclusive, but in fact men are afraid to go beyond the status quo, because then they can call feminine, and so they never get “manly” role, the role of a superhero.
I’ve always wanted to try on a ball gown, but I didn’t know when and where I could put it on. And then I got this job – to power red carpet. And I went to Christian Siriano (I liked him ever since “Project Runway, because he creates clothes for people, not just “zero” size for model) and asked: “do you Have time to make me a dress?”, and he said, “Yes, of course!”
– continued porter.
However, there has not been without memes – some Twitter users compared the image of a porter with a cartoon witch Ursula from the little Mermaid. But a resourceful man these commentators were – a couple of weeks ago with her also compared and KARDi Bi for “Grammy-2019”.
