If there is anybody who could audaciously pull off whimsy and elegance at the same time, Billy Porter has all the fashionistas beat.

The Pose actor's ebullient personality and charisma simply could not be contained in even the smartest of suits while on the red carpet.


After enchanting people in a gender non-conforming Christian Siriano designed tuxedo gown last year, Porter turned heads by going with a two-piece royal gown for this year's Oscars.

The glint from the gilded feathers adorning his turtleneck bodice caught every eye and the elegant songbird appeared as if he had just made contact on terra firma.

He has safely descended from the heavens.


The sartorial event was designed by British style icon Giles Deacon and the Baroque-inspired pouffed skirt was reportedly inspired by the interior of the Cupola Room at Kensington Palace—where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge reside.

There is no denying Porter's fabulousness, but a photo of him getting a load off was the pose everyone is talking about. This is how the fashion icon bundled up after taking refuge in a tent following a brief downpour on the red carpet.

And he gave us comfort realness.

When it comes to looking fabulous, there is no down time for Billy Porter.



Grey blankets are now IN!



Some people tried to get all sassy.



Most were here for it and wanted to cuddle up with him.


While some tried to mock his casualness, he humbly commented on LA weather.







He achieved something very unique here.

But not everyone can pull it off.

Once again, Porter made a fashion statement—and where is his trophy for cozy elegance?

We went to Ask Reddit to find out some of the worst reasons people have been woken up.

People have a habit of excusing crap behavior - honestly because it's often easier in the short term. Long term = flaming dumpster fire.

We live in a time where we are critically re-examining how we pay workers. After a two-year-long pandemic where some low-income and "unskilled" jobs were deemed "essential," we now must put our money where our mouth is.

For too long in the world have incredibly important jobs been overlooked or else outright maligned. Teachers in the USA make some of the least money, career-wise, and have some of the hardest jobs. Dancers pay to put their bodies through hell with no guarantee of paid work after training.

What causes a small town to die?

Honestly, there can be quite a few factors, but perhaps the biggest one is that small towns often lack the upward mobility opportunities that are more available in urban areas.

As a result, many towns around the United States for instance have lost tens of millions of people as their populations seek jobs and opportunities elsewhere.

And what remains of these places can be pretty sketchy.

People told us more after Redditor RadicalizedSnackWrap asked the online community,

"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
