POSE star Billy Porter graced the 91st annual Academy Award Red Carpet in a truly dazzling tuxedo dress this past Sunday.
There was no camera (or Instagram account) that was not giving it's full attention to the actor, who was boasting a custom velvet Christian Siriano design. But the most viral reaction to Porter's super chic look came from Best Actress nominee Glenn Close...and she speaks for all of us!

Close was caught on camera giving Billy’s outfit a seriously dramatic once over during his red carpet presentation, ending in a jaw dropping stamp of approval. However, Close was not alone, many viewers and celebs took to Twitter to cite their love for Porter's outfit!

I ADORE what Billy Porter wore to the Oscars. Though I can’t help wondering how difficult it was to pee. https://t.co/nNaHSqiznP

Billy Porter's look for the #Oscars2019 just gets more iconic the more you look at it. Stab me in the eyes because honestly I never need to see a single red carpet look again after this. Complete and total perfection. pic.twitter.com/n6YKgb1Agw
