Billy Porter is helping fans stay creative and busy while social distancing. The Pose star asked his fans to participate in a little DIY project while staying at home, which he aptly called the #BillyPorterFashionChallenge. He tasked followers to re-create his iconic 2019 Met Gala outfit. You know, the one where he wore a custom gold “Sun God” outfit by The Blonds, which was inspired by both Diana Ross in 1975’s Mahogany and Elizabeth Taylor in 1963’s Cleopatra. For the Camp-themed gala last year, Billy went all out in a bedazzled catsuit that came with a pair of 10-foot wings. Yes, you read that right! He styled the bold outfit with an intricate headpiece made out of 24-karat gold and matching Giuseppe Zanotti boots.

Billy posted a picture of his outfit with the caption “OK, y’all – it’s time for our first fashion challenge! Using items found ONLY in your house, give me your best recreation of my 2019 @themetgalaofficial lewk and post a photo or video on your Instagram (grid or story)! Be CREATIVE and have FUN! Get the whole family involved! Remember to tag me and use the hashtag #BillyPorterFashionChallenge. I’ll share my favorites! Can’t wait to see what y’all come up with, hennies!
