I hope you all are having a good week so far!
This week for my Fashion Inspo I chose Billy Porter!
I feel like I cannot in good conscious, write a fashion blog without including him! Billy Porter is a fashion icon! His looks never disappoint! And they are always head-turning and show stopping!
The first time I really started to follow him style wise, was when he wore the fitted tuxedo gown made by Christian Siriano to the 91st Academy Awards! I remember the E! News reporters fawning over it. I happened to miss seeing him, so of course, I began furiously googling to see what all of the fuss was about. They were right to fawn about it! It was such a dynamic look! And he wore it so elegantly!
After people were surprised at some of his previous fashion choices, Billy was inspired to ask Christian Siriano to make him a ball gown because he 'wanted to wear one' and 'wanted to challenge people's ideas about masculinity.'
As a gay, black man Billy is a huge inspiration for many others out there. He is a voice of courage to those who also wish to wear ball gowns but have not had the courage to do it yet. Artistically, he is a huge inspiration to me. He makes me want to take more chances, put out more that can really get people talking and thinking. Of course, style-wise I LOVE him! I always look forward to seeing what he comes up with next!
Thank you, Billy Porter! You are a force to be reckoned with! Keep on being you!
Thanks for reading! See you guys on Friday! =D
