Billy Porter

In 2019, Broadway singer and actor Billy Porter elevated his already extravagant fashion sense to new heights at the Met Gala. The Blonds, a New York City design team, created his iconic outfit, which included a catsuit with 10-foot wings, a 24-karat gold headpiece, and custom gold-leaf shoes made by Italian designer Giuseppe Zanotti.

However, it was Porter’s arrival that truly stunned the crowd: he was carried overhead by six gold-clad, shirtless men. The entire look was the epitome of “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” and perfectly captured the theme of the event. Porter’s bold fashion choices have made him a trailblazer in the industry and a symbol of self-expression, and his 2019 Met Gala outfit is undoubtedly one of the most memorable in the history of the event.
