Billy Porter may have just debuted his boldest outfit to date.
The Tony Award-winning actor posed for a new Ketel One ad next to bottles of the brand’s vodka, but all attention was drawn to Porter’s daring ensemble. He showed off his toned form in a black mesh crop top under a neon patterned jacket courtesy of The Blonds.
The outfit stepped even further onto the wild side with his choice of a cheetah-print swim brief from designer Patrick Church; the Rita bottoms feature a neon print base with additions of animal patterns and a repeated face motif, retailing on sale for $68 on the brand’s website.
