In this day and age there has never been more of a responsibility for visibility, and the shows of the time reflect that. There are many popular shows, on network television as well as streaming and cable, that do their part of showcasing all walks of life living in their most authentic voices. One of those shows, FX's groundbreaking series Pose, has been a fan favorite since it debuted in 2018 with absolutely no signs of releasing the reigns anytime soon.
Though the show features a large cast of beautiful trans actresses like Indya Moore, Dominique Jackson and MJ Rodriguez one of its breakout performers is star of stage and screen Billy Porter, who portrays the outspoken and lovable emcee for the balls, Pray Tell. Porter's character endures a myriad of trials and tribulations that make him one of the most popular characters, and he adds every ounce of heart and conviction to each moment he's on the screen, making Pray Tell relatable.
Porter must use his likeability from his everyday life as a basis for the character Pray Tell because how can you not love him? He speaks his mind, he doesn't shy away from challenges AND he's a talented actor and singer. It's his undeniable talent which has garnered him many accolades for his portrayal on Pose and also secured him the Emmy for the role last year. It was a momentous occasion, one that Porter did not take likely during his acceptance speech.
Another place where Porter shines is in the realm of the fashion world. He bends gender lines and really doesn't give a damn what anyone thinks. And his looks have been very memorable from his showstopping outfit from last year's Met Gala, to the now iconic tuxedo dress he wore to the Oscars. The ensemble brought about much conversation, though Porter was just enjoying a night out and living his best life. Now, Bustle reports that Porter's look from last night's Golden Globes is causing conversation once again.
Porter decided to wear a tuxedo again to the Globes, and, like last year, he did so with a twist. The actor chose a custom-created Alex Vinash number that took a whopping three months to create and included a next-level feathered jacket and train. Although Porter's white trousers, button-down shirt, and cummerbund leaned toward a more subtle look, he added a unique twist to the piece of suiting. A white feather train is attached to the bottom of his jacket, and it's so much that it had to be carried while he entered the red carpet.
Looking good Billy. Surely this is just the first of many looks he'll be enticing us with during awards season.
