Billy Porter uses fashion. He wields it, not only like an armor but sometimes as a weapon, fighting against whatever people 'expect' for men — specifically Black men — to wear on the red carpet. We have been watching that happen to much aclaim throughout the past year or so. And it's important work. But Billy Porter also doesn't shy away from using style as a way to have fun.
After wrapping New York Fashion Week with a standout performance onstage at The Blonds' runway show, channeling the Moulin Rouge, Porter journeyed to London with the rest of the fashion pack. And boy did he hit the ground running. It's been three days and by our count he's worn almost a dozen looks! Yeah, four in one day at one point.
The Pose star has been hitting the major shows like Victoria Beckham, and even making an appearnce at the benefit runway presentation for Naomi Campbell's charity, as well as other buzzy events. Along the way he's been rubbing elbows with the likes of British Vogue's Edward Enninful and RuPaul's Drag Race's Aquaria — more like they've been graced with his presence to be honest. What's more: we have two more days of shows, and there's no indication he's slowing down.
