Billy Porter’s Grammy Outfit Blew Everyone Away, But It was This Remote-Controlled Hat That Stole the Show – Mighty Scoops

Written by

The Grammys are highly anticipated because they honor the music industry’s best and brightest, and for fashionistas, as with other major awards ceremonies, they are also a great way to spot the standouts from the crowd. In the recent celebrations, one in particular got everyone talking: Billy Porter.

The theater actor was a playwright and anyone who has watched the Grammys knows it was because of the bling he carried out from head to toe. The 50-year-old was literally brilliant and it certainly became difficult to miss his entrance because as camera flashes hit him, he shone even brighter.

The Posie celeb arrived on the red carpet with a Scott Studenberg creation: a Baja East blue jumpsuit, which looked like it was alive, thanks to the crystal border at the feet that moved as he walked. He also wore a matching cropped jacket and more importantly, an oversized hat that apparently hid a magic trick.

Billy’s head covering has crystalline fringes that flowed down the sides, but wait, that was simply not it. It also served as a privacy blanket for the man, because like a curtain, it only closes with the push of a button.

The daring dresser joked on Twitter that the curtain closes when someone irritates him. Billy showed on the red carpet what it could do and as soon as the fringes opened, it revealed its glossy metallic look.

Billy loved Billie Eilish’s hood

The spectacular hat was made by Sarah Sokol, a miller for celebrities such as Emilia Clarke, Cardi B, and Janelle Monae. The brains behind the moving piece were Smooth Technology, whose hardware technology was used at festivals and concerts.

Apparently, the same technology company was one of those responsible for Janelle’s Met Gala appearance last year, so that’s what connected them to the miller. The result was nothing short of perfect: a masterpiece that stopped the crowd and enchanted fashion gurus.

Billy’s stylist Sam Ratelle said the moving headdress was inspired by the singer Billie Eilish‘s American Music Awards darkened hood. He explained that he was also the one holding the remote control and when the star pointed at him, he closed the crest.

Overall, Billy’s appearance had 70,000 crystals placed on the outfit by hand. Outrageous, right?

However, if you are a big fan of the Like a boss star, you will remember that his Critic’s Choice Award outfit was as outrageous as this blue ensemble.
