Even though I didn’t watch the Oscars on Saturday, I made a point to see who wore what to the ceremony. My favorite look of the night was Billy Porter in Christian Siriano. His outfit really challenged the unspoken Hollywood dress code by playing with masculinity and femininity. The garment was seamlessly made. It was elegant and regal and show stopping.
Fashion is a really interesting industry because its not that practical for everyday people. But when celebrities like Porter express themselves in creative and innovative ways, they open the doors for everyday people who want to start expressing themselves in a similar way. Fashion is a very influential art, and for the most part is has a positive affect on people’s lives.
