Billy Porter's Motorized Hat Inspired the Best Grammys Memes
The Earth is round, and Billy Porter has never disappointed us on a red carpet: F-A-C-T-S.
Porter arrived at the Grammys on Sunday evening in a turquoise crystal-studded Scott Studenberg jumpsuit with glittering crystal fringe and a matching wide-brim hat made in collaboration with Sarah Sokol. Porter complemented the show-stopping ensemble with bling-y Alexis Bittar jewelry, including a shimmering choker and a bracelet designed to resemble a (very chic) spider. In total, the 2014 Grammy winner’s look accented by 70,000 crystals.

Naturally, Twitter was here for the Pose star’s gloriously over-the-top accessory. The memes. Oh, the memes ...
Porter confirmed our suspicions regarding the aim of the motorized curtain, telling Vanity Fair, “The crystal curtain stays open, unless you get on my nerves and then I can shut you right out!” The practicality!
