Billy Porter turned heads in a flowing sheer gown that's one of his boldest looks yet


From the Oscars to the Met Gala, Billy Porter has become one of the brightest stars on the red carpet. His look for the Peabody Awards held in New York City on Saturday proves that he’s not done pushing the boundaries of men’s fashion.

The “Pose” star hit the red carpet in one of his boldest looks yet.

Porter wore an ensemble by Celestino Couture that paired a half-bodysuit with a flowing sheer overlay. The gown featured intricate pink embroidery throughout its layers of ruffled berry tulle. He paired the eye-catching design with a dark lip colour for an extra touch of drama.

While the gown is one of his most head-turning looks yet, it’s also one of his most ethically conscious. According to Vogue, the designer behind the look focuses on using upcycled materials in an attempt to keep the label’s fashion as environmentally friendly as possible. The brand also donates 10% of its profits towards initiatives focused on ending human trafficking.

Porter previously turned heads at the Met Gala when he arrived in a shimmering gold ensemble by The Blonds.
