CAMP THEME, NAILED! Billy Porter's Grand Entrance At The Met Gala Was THE MOST With A Gold Drip!

The King of the Carpet has arrived! Go inside to see Billy Porter's over-the-top Met Gala entrance inside....

This year's Met Gala theme, CAMP: Notes on Fashion, is all about over-the-top dramatics. And actor Billy Porter made sure to come through with all the extraness. Go big, or stay home. Remember that tuxedo dress he rocked at the Oscars?

The Broadway and "Pose" star made sure to solidify his spot as King of the Carpet as he rolled up on the carpet at the 2019 Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala drenched in gold, including gold Giuseppe Zanotti boots, while being carried by six shirtless men, also dressed in gold.

Billy rocked a custom "Sun God" concoction by The Blonds, which included a bejeweled catsuit that featured 10-foot wings. He topped it off with a 24-karat gold headpiece and custom gold glitter ‘Atlanta’ boots by Giuseppe Zanotti.

“Camp means irreverence,” Billy Porter told Variety. “Camp means as hugely over-the-top and grand and what some may feel is ridiculous and silly, and embracing all of those creative impulses inside us that very often are squelched.”
