Billy Porter found a fun and fabulous way to help his fans cope with being cooped up during the coronavirus outbreak.
The style darling, 50, issued a tricky fashion challenge on Instagram Wednesday. “Using items found ONLY in your house, give me your best recreation of my 2019 @themetgalaofficial lewk and post a photo or video on your Instagram (grid or story),” the “Pose” star wrote.
“Be CREATIVE and have FUN! Get the whole family involved! Remember to tag me and use the hashtag #BillyPorterFashionChallenge. I’ll share my favorites! Can’t wait to see what y’all come up with, hennies!”
Designed by The Blonds, Porter’s “Sun God” outfit for last year’s camp-themed Met Gala featured a sparkling catsuit and gilded 10-foot wings, along with a gold headpiece, matching Giuseppe Zanotti shoes and plenty of jewelry.
Despite the intricacy of the actor’s ensemble, his fans quickly rose to the occasion, with amazing results that incorporated materials ranging from beads to bananas. Below, a few standouts from fans’ submissions.
