For the occasion, the actor wore a custom Christian Siriano tuxedo overlay gown with a dramatic train in bright pink. Porter paired the gown with a white tuxedo shirt and matching rose-colored bow tie. He accessorized the look with statement rings on both hands.
In an Instagram post during tonight’s ceremony, Siriano praised Porter and the dress, referring to the actor as “The King.”
For makeup, Porter went for smoky eye shadow in a light purple color to complement the gown.
Porter and Siriano have worked together before for statement-making gowns that combine masculine tailoring with evening-gown drama. Porter made headlines in February 2019 when he wore a black tuxedo gown by Christian Siriano on the red carpet for the 91st Annual Academy Awards.
Porter broke the internet in this look and has worn Siriano for other noteworthy moments. At the 2019 WorldPride NYC Parade in honor of Pride Month, Porter walked in a lavish rainbow gown with an extensive train.
In 2021, Porter completed the final season of his hit series “Pose.” In 2022, he loaned his voice talents to “The Proud Family” spin-off “The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder.”
