|Billy Porter - Oscar Red Carpet '19|
Billy Porter knows how to "Pose." according to CNN.
The star of the FX series "Pose" shut down the red carpet with his Christian Siriano tuxedo gown.
Porter told Vogue his "goal is to be a walking piece of political art every time I show up."
"To challenge expectations. What is masculinity?" he asked. "What does that mean? Women show up every day in pants, but the minute a man wears a dress, the seas part."
The actor said he's always wanted to wear a dress.
"We wanted to play between the masculine and the feminine," Porter said. "This look was interesting because it’s not drag. I’m not a drag queen, I’m a man in a dress."
