WITH THE PROVISO THAT BILLY PORTER IS THE G.O.A.T. AND THAT ANYONE ELSE CAN ONLY HOPE TO COME A DISTANT SECOND TO HIS SARTORIAL PERFECTION, let’s vote on T Lo’s fave menswear looks on the Oscars 2019 red carpet. Our choices are tough, but fair – and also very, very pretty to look at.
T’s Defense: Well come on. He looks stunning. Love the color, love the vest, love the brooch. Only so-so on the white boots, but the longer I look, the more I appreciate them for being a bold, modern and cohesive choice. In fact, the main appeal of this look is how modern it feels; how much of an appropriate update it is for formal menswear.
Lo’s Defense: Le sigh.
Two men who love themselves some velvet! Two queens who love themselves some men in velvet! YOU get to decide which Velvet Man gets your love!
