Billy Porter in Alex Vinash at the Golden Globes: amazing as always?

Billy Porter is always so notable on the red carpet that the expectations are set so high for him. Do you remember last year’s Oscars when he wore a velvet ball gown? Also did you know he’s just an Oscar away from an EGOT? It’s true and I want that to happen for him. Unfortunately he didn’t win another Globe last night, he was nominated Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series for Pose. That went to Brian Cox for Succession, but he won last year in that category so I’m sure he’s fine. Billy was in a custom white Alex Vinash suit with a huge feather train. He told Ryan Seacrest that it took three months of work and that he had to get the suit made before he knew he would be nominated! The feather part zips out so he can sit. I love him and love seeing what he’s wearing. He always brings it.



Rachel Brosnahan was in eggplant Michael Kors. She was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy for Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. She won the Globe for that the past two years so I’m sure she wasn’t broken up about it. I kept marveling how gorgeous her hair and makeup looked on camera. A few women had gorgeous soft wavy hair like that.



Christina Applegate was nominated in Brosnahan’s same category, for Dead to Me. If you haven’t seen that Netflix series yet, watch it! You’ll want to have time because you won’t be able to resist binging it. She had on a sequin striped deep v-neck Pamela Roland gown. It wasn’t my favorite but it was cute enough.



Nominee Natasha Lyonne was in Moschino. If you haven’t seen Russian Doll yet, or if you watched a few minutes and got turned off by the dialogue, give it a chance. It gets better and is well worth the time. As for this dress, remember the giant bow dress Charlize Theron wore to the 2006 Oscars? It reminds me a little of that.

    So I was watching Say Yes to the Dress with my husband in the room the other day and they put this poor bride in an empire-waisted gown COVERED in feathers from the boobs down and it was terrible and I forced him to look at it and glory in its ugliness.

    So, of course, yesterday I had to try to explain to him why, no Billy Porter COULD get away with floor-length feathers. Trust me. It’s totally different.

    I don’t think he got it, lol.

    Rachel Brosnahan would look so much better if she kept the brown hair she sports for MRs Maisel. The blond hair makes her blend in, where she just pops as a brunette.

      Agreed. She looks so generic that I barely recognized her. Lovely for sure, but not memorable or distinctive.

    Billy is just beautiful and he’s the kind of person that brings a smile to your face, so charming.

    I liked Russian Doll in spite of myself (I get grumpy about new shows that my husband wants to watch lol). The dialogue was ok with me because I’m from the Philly area and people around here talk straight-up and somewhat crude but extremely honest, like Natasha’s character.

    Natasha dress… the length is ruining it for me. But I love to see her out and about, dressed up and successful!

    Billy looked devine! Just perfect!

    Billy Porter totally killed it. That look is to die for.

    Yes, Snappyfish, Billy Porter can wear ANYTHING and look great; that includes ALL the women’s fashion for this or any occasion. Runway model extraordinaire!

    It’s Billy Porter’s world; the rest of us are just living in it. Someone needs to give him a really awesome movie role so he can get that Oscar and join the EGOT club.

  8. Esmom says:

    Billy looks amazing. Rachel looks lovely but I’m not a fan of either Christina or Natasha’s dresses.

    I agree that Dead to Me is really great! I haven’t gotten past the first couple episodes of Russian Doll so maybe I need to give it another attempt.

    I like all of these. Love the color of Rachel’s. Billy is always a standout.
    I like Christina’s dress a lot, but it maybe wasn’t the best lines for her? I don’t.

    Fashion-wise, I think I would like to join a Billy Porter cult. He blows everyone else out of the water. I LOVE that the world (outside of NYC theatre) has finally caught on to the magnificence that is Billy Porter.
