Hollywood’s biggest stars strutted their stuff on the Oscars red carpet Sunday, and a few trends emerged: old school glamour, metallic gowns, lots of pink, trousers on the women… and one stunning gown on a man.

Actor Billy Porter turned many heads with a Christian Siriano black velvet tuxedo gown. Yes, you read that right. Respect.

The Pose actor was the first star to arrive at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, wearing a custom high-necked dress by designer Christian Siriano which featured a velvet bow tie, a sweeping skirt and ruffled white sleeves.

The 49-year-old posted a message of appreciation to the American designer on his Twitter account, thanking Siriano for creating a “masterpiece.”
“When you come to the Oscars, you must dress up,” he wrote. “Thanks @CSiriano for creating this custom couture masterpiece.”

Porter told Vogue US that he opted for the eye-catching style in a bid to “challenge expectations” of masculinity.

“Women show up every day in pants, but the minute a man wears a dress, the seas part,” he said. “It happened to me at the Golden Globes.”

Porter’s look was a huge hit on Twitter, with fans joking that other stars should “go home” as the actor had already “won” the red carpet.
Here are some of the reactions:

But this is not the first time that Billy Porter has taken over the red carpet. His iconic look at the Golden Globe’s Awards is still the talk of Tinsel Town.
