Six Shirtless Men Carry Billy Porter in Camp Golden Catsuit

If you want to make an epic entry at your next party, do like Billy Porter and hire six shirtless men in golden pants to carry you. Perhaps he was inspired by Lady Gaga’s human-powered Trojan horse?

The 49-year-old Pose actor and Tony Award winner truly brought camp to the Met Gala’s pink carpet. He spread his gilded butterfly wings as he posed for the photographers in a custom The Blonds ensemble and custom Giuseppe Zanotti FW ’19 “Atlanta” gold glitter boots.

He stopped to talk with Vogue’s Liza Koshy about bringing respect back to camp and his golden Egyptian ensemble.

“Camp means irreverence,” the Pose actor told Variety when asked about his personal definition of camp. “Camp means as hugely over-the-top and grand and what some may feel is ridiculous and silly, and embracing all of those creative impulses inside us that very often are squelched.”

Three months ago, the American stage performer, pop singer, and actor casually stole the Academy Awards red carpet in a custom Christian Siriano tuxedo gown. He was the fashion correspondent for ABC’s red carpet coverage leading up to the Oscars.
