Billy Porter Effortlessly Makes Four Outfit Changes In 24 Hours At London Fashion Week

Dresses, platform shoes, kimonos, fascinators – you name it, the Pose star wore it

If you ever worry about packing too many outfits for a week’s holiday, actor Billy Porter just proved that, when it comes to fashion, it always works in your favour to come prepared.

Appearing on the FROW at London Fashion Week on Saturday, the Pose star ‘shut down’ the capital by making not one but four outfit changes during the day.

Despite the hot temperatures in the UK capital over the weekend, the 49-year-old was seen with his husband Adam Smith, at the Sharon Wauchob show, wearing a fitted black blazer ( sans shirt), black trousers, a white fascinator and a white floral broach.

Next up came a visit to the Henry Holland SS20 show, for which the star changed into a fuchsia-coloured blazer, black velvet trousers, a white shirt, a monochrome fascinator, thick rimmed black glasses and a white floral broach.

While other LFW attendees were no doubt grabbing a quick bite to eat in Pret-A-Manger between shows, Porter was serving up a third and truly fabulous ensemble for the Halpern runway.

For the fashion moment, the actor teamed a canary yellow floor-length gown with a multicoloured kimono. He styled the look with a gold necklace, earrings and sunglasses.

Finally came Porter’s visit to the Fashion For Relief show, to which the star wore an exaggerated feathered bomber jacket, a bejewelled collared top, leather trousers, a black feathered fascinator and black platform heels.

The star topped off the Jackie O-inspired ensemble with a black envelope back with a short Perspex handle.

Porter has become a fashion icon around the world in recent months after he wore a show-stopping tuxedo gown, designed by Christian Sirano, to the Oscars in February and a gold angel-winged ensemble to the Met Gala 2019.

The actor has been praised for defying gender norms with his fashion and hailed as ‘groundbreaking’ on social media.

Recalling the moment he stepped out onto the Oscars red carpet in Siriano’s creation with the The Sunday Times Style last month, Porter explained he wished he’d worn the gown years earlier.

‘Nobody would have been ready for it,’ he said. ‘That’s the reason why I didn’t. Because the world wasn’t ready for it, but, like, really? Really, y’all?’
