Here’s Billy Porter’s look to the Oscars which was inspired by Kensington Palace (Photos)

Fifty year old US actor, Billy Porter, who is popularly known for breaking gender rules on red carpets, made a fashion statement as he attended the 92nd Annual Academy Awards on Sunday, February 9, 2020. 

The openly gay actor, stormed the red carpet last night in a sleeveless, high-neck, gold-foil-feathered bodice and billowing graphic skirt inspired by Kensington Palace.

Porter also rocked a pair of towering gold metallic strappy boots with gold embellishments by Jimmy Choo.

Sharing the photos on his Instagram page, he wrote:

‘The Oscars are a royal event, so naturally we took inspiration from Kensington Palace. I’m officially a Queen with a KW,’.

Porter’s stylist, Sam Ratelle, who visited the Kensington Palace in 2019, and took a tour of the 415-year-old residential palace, said:

“I thought, ‘The Oscars are kind of a royal event,’” Mr. Ratelle said. So he called a British designer whom he’d recently befriended, Giles Deacon, and told him he had an idea. Why not infuse the regalness of Kensington Palace into a gown for Mr. Porter, whom Mr. Ratelle called “a queen with a ‘kw’”?
