Billy Porter posed like a bird on the Emmys red carpet on Sunday night, showing off wing-like sleeves and $US1 ($AU1) million in jewelry.
Porter, who is nominated for outstanding lead actor in a drama series for his portrayal of Pray Tell on “Pose,” told E! News that his all-black outfit, designed by Ashi, turned out differently than he expected, but said he worked with what he had.
“Interestingly enough, this was supposed to go all the way to the floor, this little piece, and it didn’t,” Porter told Karamo Brown on “Live from E!” on the red carpet. “I started just playing with shapes and stuff in the mirror and it was like, ‘Well, they feels like wings.'”
To accompany the wings, Porter wore a diamond and emerald necklace, diamond bracelets, and cuff earrings.
“Live from E!” reported that Porter’s jewels were worth more than $US1 ($AU1) million.
