The 91st annual Academy Awards are in full swing and the red carpet seems to be especially star-studded this year. Of the many show-stopping looks, one, in particular, has our jaws dropping and demands an Oscar of its own.
Billy Porter positively slayed at Sunday night’s Oscar ceremonies, gracing the red carpet in a velvet tuxedo gown.
The “Pose” actor stunned viewers in his black velvet ball gown with a full skirt and train.
The look was designed by Christian Siriano who tweeted a photo of Porter at the 91st annual Academy Awards.

Best dressed. Tell the line of limos to turn around and drop everyone back off at home.
