Billy Porter Wore a Dress to the Oscars and the Internet Is Shook
Just when we thought we’d seen every red carpet trend imaginable, Billy Porter proved us wrong.

Twitter went wild for the gender-defying look:
Naturally, this isn’t the first time Porter has made a splash on the red carpet. The Golden Globe nominee arrived at the 2019 ceremony in an embroidered pale gray suit with a metallic embellished beige cape with a hot pink underside.
