Is there a red carpet that Billy Porter can’t slay? The answer is NO.

At tonight’s Tony Awards, Porter shut everyone down once again. This time, he dazzled in a gown created from the curtain that opened every night during Kinky Boots—the Broadway musical in which he starred.

Porter’s dress was tailored by Celestino Couture, an environmentally and socially conscious-brand. His shoes were created by Orel Brodt, and his bag was designed by Emm Kuo Ny. Porter’s stylist Sam Ratelle told the New York Times, “He’s not a drag queen. He’s a man in a dress. We don’t want to confuse people, because he actually is not a drag queen. One day he might want to wear a dress, one day he might not.”

Check out some photos of Porter getting ready with his personal groomer La Sonya Gunter for the Tony Awards.

Kudos to the Pose star for continually destroying gender norms one red carpet at a time!
