Billy Porter is the fashion icon we need in 2019

Ever since he hit a second wind of stardom by appearing Ryan Murphy’s groundbreaking hit show Pose, Billy Porter has been making the most of every public appearance, from talk show appearances to the iconic red carpet moments. He’s a breath of fresh air in a sea of tuxedos and bad t-shirt/blazer combos. Unapologetically queer in every look he turns out the party in the flounciest garb he can get his hands on, and we just can’t get enough.

We thought we could leave the global chaos and anxiety back in 2018, but unfortunately, it’s followed us on into this coming year.  When the clouds gather and the day looks bleak, at least there’s Mr Billy Porter turning looks. He’s a ray of fashion sunshine. Here are some of our fave looks from the past few months:

Rockefeller Centre Tree Lighting 28th November, 2018

Looking damn frosty. Head to toe white is a brave look, but this textured duster by Issey Miyake is selling it.

There’s something about this Rinat Brodach wrap that we just can’t stop staring out. He looks like a sassy rockstar mid-birth.
