Billy Porter channeled his inner-“monster” last night at the Fashion Awards.
He pulled a full-blown Lady Gaga (circa 2019 Met Gala) at the event with a number of wardrobe changes.
Porter served as the “host with the most” during Monday’s Fashion Awards at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
The awards show also which paid tribute to Virgil Abloh who passed away on Sunday, November 28.

The “Pose” star was accompanied by an entourage of costumed dancers, and donned three different outfits throughout the evening.
Half of the dancers wore matching masks while the others wore puff sleeves, black PVC pants, and matching black patent boots, also designed by London-based designer Quinn, according to CNN.
For Porter’s first look, he wore a black-and-silver houndstooth dress designed by Richard Quinn.
You may recall Gaga’s jaw-dropping performance on the Met Ball stairs in 2019.
That year she her grand entrance consisted of FOUR outfit changes within 15 minutes.
She started her performance in an oversized pink coat and matching bow, which was then stripped off to expose a strapless black gown, to then another pink number, this time a spaghetti strapped dress, and finally a sequined black bra with black spanks and fishnet stockings.

The year’s theme was “Camp” and Gaga served as one of the co-chairs of the Ball.
Clearly, Porter took some advice from the “House of Gucci” actress when it came to his entrance to the fashion awards.
However, the actor shows up and shows out at every red-carpet event.
So, we can’t say that we’re surprised by his multiple outfit changes!
Idris Elba, a friend of Abloh, delivered a moving speech honoring the designer and read the Maya Angelou poem “When Great Trees Fall,” according to Metro.

Elba reportedly told the audience, “I lost a friend, his wife lost a husband, the fashion industry lost a legend, and the world lost a special human being.
The actor said he remembered Abloh was one of the few people he could have a conversation with while “multitasking,” noting that his friend “didn’t do it for the fame or the money, he did it to inspire others.”
Earlier this year, Porter came under fire after making some remarks about Harry Styles’ Vogue cover in which he wore a dress.
Weeks after his remarks made headlines, Porter publicly apologized to Styles while making an appearance on Stephen Colbert’s show.
