The 91st Academy Awards took place in Los Angeles on Monday, February 25, and the star-studded event was attended by several global celebrities. From 'Green Book' winning the award for the Best Picture 2019 to Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper performing their award-winning song 'Shallow' from 'A star is born', on stage, the ceremony witnessed a number of eye-grabbing moments.
Global stars including Chris Evans, Jason Momoa, Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper among others dazzled at the Oscars Red Carpet. In fact, Indian actress Priyanka Chopra also attended the event with husband Nick Jonas as they walked the red carpet hand-in-hand. However, actor Billy Porter just set the bar impossibly high for Oscars fashion as he brilliantly broke gender stereotype by choosing a ‘tuxedo gown’ that made headlines galore.
Designed by Christian Siriano, Billy’s ensemble for the evening consisted of a sharp, black velvet tuxedo with silk lapels, a black bow tie, white ruffled cuffs. A usual red carpet appearance for a male celebrity till now, but he interestingly paired it with a voluminous, matching ball skirt.
Take a look:
While people around the world are stunned by the American actor's out-of-the-box fashion statement, netizens have pointed out an Indian actor who can give serious competition to him, and yes he is none other than Bollywood star Ranveer Singh.
Indian fans have drawn comparisons between Porter and Ranveer, as the latter's unmatchable dressing sense and quirky outfits never miss the limelight.
Although there are opinions about Ranveer's dressing, one can never deny that the actor never fails to pull it off, rather rocks in them. So, when Porter's Oscar red carpet outfit made the headlines, Indian fans began to draw attention to their 'best man'.
Here's how Twitterverse reacted to the same:
Meanwhile, on the work front, Ranveer is currently basking the success of his latest release 'Gully Boy'. The Zoya Akhtar directorial which also stars Alia Bhatt and Siddhanth Chaturvedi in the lead was widely lauded by the audience and the critics and the film recently crossed the Rs 100 crore mark at the box office and is continuing to set the ticketing counters on fire. The rap-drama premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival this year and was also widely lauded by the international audience.
