Billy Porter brought his signature dramatic flair to the 2021 Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles.

Taking to the red carpet this evening, the “Pose” actor caught attention as he put on a mini-performance for photographers in all-black attire from Ashi. The ensemble featured a unique top complete with voluminous wing-like sleeves and a lacy collar necklace; the bold piece came matched to high-rise, flair trousers and hidden black platform boots — a signature footwear move by Porter.
