Billy Porter definitely knows how to shut down a red carpet. When he arrived at the 2020 Oscars in a Giles Deacon look, paired with Atelier Swarovski jewelry and Jimmy Choo heels, we were so impressed, we were about ready to pack it in and call it a night. However, the Pose star wasn't done yet.

Once the awards show started, the actor appeared in a whole new outfit during the opening performance, styled with a Lark & Berry x Diamond Foundry necklace. Notably, the diamonds included in the piece were more than just pretty — they were ethical and sustainable, too. (Porter knows as well as anyone that an outfit change needs to be special, after all.)

“When I saw this stunning Lark & Berry x Diamond Foundry necklace, I knew that it was the perfect shinning accent to his performance look," Porter's stylist, Sam Ratelle, told InStyle via email. "The fact that it is ethical and sustainable with cultured diamonds only makes it even more special and important to wear at an occasion like The Academy Awards. Looking good and doing good doesn’t have to be mutually exclusive.”

We agree. This piece was stunning, and will no doubt go down in Oscars fashion history.
