“Pose” Star Billy Porter in Alex Vinash on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”

Posted on June 14, 2019


Mr. Porter refuses to conform once again.






We know that sometimes, you have to take into consideration the boldness of a look; the statement that it’s making, before you start going in and pooping all over it by making a conventional fashion critique. Some of Billy’s outfits have been drop-dead chic or just plain jaw-dropping. Some have been awkward and a little tacky. This look is neither, but it’s a prime example of an outfit that becomes something else when he wears it; something fabulous and confident and life-affirming. Something that challenges norms and defies expectations. On that level, we are duty-bound to salute it.

But if any starlet came out wearing this, we’d almost certainly call it tacky. We’re just being honest here.
