Billy Porter's Epic Tuxedo Gown Already Won the Oscars

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. Scroll down to see Porter's epic tuxedo dress at the 2019 Oscars, and stay tuned for more coverage of Hollywood's biggest night.

Next, the four trends everyone always wears to Oscars after-parties

Erin Fitzpatrick
Associate Director, Fashion News

I got my start as a Who What Wear intern eleven years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (We've since increased that number twentyfold.) I graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how I ended up moving to Los Angeles from my hometown of San Diego. In college, I also interned at Refinery29, where I was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, I came back to WWW in 2016, where I currently hold the title of Associate Director, Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royals expert—in case you haven't noticed my numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). I spend my days trying to incorporate my idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, I love tennis, dogs, classic rock, and traveling.
