Billy Porter & High Camp Style Top Google’s 2019 Search Report

Google has released its annual Year in Search report, which lists the top trending queries on the platform over the course of a year.

The company splits the results into categories, which, in the fashion arena, include People on the Red Carpet, Celebrity Looks, Fashion Style, Outfit Ideas and even queries on how to wear certain key items such as duck boots and booties paired with jeans.

Billy Porter topped the list for People on the Red Carpet. The “Pose” actor, who is known for his eccentric outfit choices and penchant for wearing heels, attended the 2019 FN Achievement Awards last week in New York, where he ushered Jimmy Choo creative director Sandra Choi into the FN Hall of Fame.

At the event, he wore Jimmy Choo high-heeled boots and carried a white tote from the brand’s women’s collection. “I think he’s a [size] 42,” Choi told FN, “but we go up to size 44 women’s, so it wasn’t even an issue.”

In the Google report, Porter beat even Cardi B and Lady Gaga, who came second and third, respectively,  on the list.

When it came to the Fashion Style category, Porter’s high-camp look also scored big. Following the Costume Institute’s blockbuster “Camp: Notes on Fashion” exhibition this year, the term ‘camp’ topped the year’s searches in the Fashion Style category, too.
