Billy Porter Performs in Luxe Fox Fur Coat & Jimmy Choo Boots at the Rockefeller Christmas Tree Lighting

As cold temperatures settle in over New York, Billy Porter ensured he wasn’t frozen as he performed alongside Idina Menzel at the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting yesterday.

The “Pose” actor wore a one-of-a-kind Helen Yarmak fox fur coat over velvet Sharon Wauchob pants.

He completed his look with a crystal-embellished hat and a sparkling necklace.

Porter was one of the presenters at the 2019 FN Achievement Awards on Tuesday, Dec. 3, introducing FN Hall of Fame inductee Sandra Choi, Jimmy Choo’s creative director. On the red carpet, the star talked with FN about his statement-making fashion.

“I have frolicked around in frocks from the time I can remember. People have always talked about my fashion; people have always talked s**t about me because of my fashion. Because I never cared,” Porter explained. “What’s happening right now — it’s not an accident. My friends actually had to remind me of that. They said, ‘This is an extension of what you’ve always done. You now just have a budget and designers who want to do it for you.’ ”

Meanwhile, Menzel wore a gray coat over a sparkling silver top and skinny black pants. She completed her look with block-heeled slouch boots.
