Billy Porter's 2020 Grammys red carpet look isn't just great for pictures. She moves, honey!
The Pose star accessorized his custom Baja East crystal-encrusted blue outfit with a custom Sarah Sokol hat. The wide-brimmed hat, which was made in collaboration with Brooklyn-based artist-engineer group Smooth Technology, has motorized peek-a-boo crystal curtains that close and open.
According to an interview with Vanity Fair, it took two weeks to pull the whole look together. "This design is a great compromise. It's a reveal." Porter said. "The crystal curtain stays open, unless you get on my nerves and then I can shut you right out!"
This fabulous hat — designed by Porter himself, along with his stylist Sam Ratelle, and Scott Studenberg — caught the attention of the Internet, and has generated an onslaught of memes. See some of our favorites below.
