Billy Porter Gets Edgy With Spiked Shoulders & Plated Platforms on BET Awards 2022 Red Carpet

While Billy Porter is typically known for his glamorous red carpet looks, the actor showed off a more neutral, yet eye-catching outfit at the 2022 BET Awards on Sunday in Los Angeles.

The “Pose” star stepped out in an entirely gray outfit by designer Rick Owens. The ensemble from the fall 2022 collection consisted of a long sweater with long sleeves and bold shoulders paired with a matching skirt, which trailed behind him as he walked the red carpet.

The “Cinderella” actor’s asymmetrical skirt gave way to platform boots in the same shade of gray that featured a chunky clear heel and a futuristic square toe design. He completed the look with some rings, an updo and dark eye makeup.
