Billy Porter has stunned the crowds at the Academy Awards, making his highly-anticipated red carpet arrival in a gold, custom couture ensemble.

One of the earliest arrivals at the Los Angeles Dolby theatre, the Pose star shared a photograph on social media detailing every element of his dazzling outfit.

Porter’s gown, which features a gold, feathered torso and a printed skirt, was created by English fashion designer Giles Deacon, while his heeled, custom shoes were designed by Jimmy Choo.

Having become known for his red carpet sartorial prowess, Porter received several praiseworthy comments from fans in awe of his Oscars look.

“Petition to make Billy Porter the new #Oscars statue,” one person tweeted, emphasising the likeness between the actor’s outfit and the golden Academy Awards statuette.

“Billy Porter takes my breath away with this one. Gorgeous,” another person wrote.

Last year, Porter made his mark on the Oscars red carpet wearing an eye-catching Christian Siriano tuxedo gown.

Several months later, the 50-year-old told The Sunday Time Style that he “should have worn this f***ing dress 20 years ago”.
