Met Gala: Why we excluded Billy Porter from our Best Dressed list

We’ve gotten a couple of comments, messages as to why have we not included Billy Porter in our ‘Best Dressed at #METGala2019’ list and the reason is pretty simple. Though we loved the glittering gold bodysuit and robe by The Blonds, we needed to not have him on the list, because it’s 2019 and his entry just wasn’t justified, to us. We agree that he came dressed as an Egyptian Sun God, but there are some things that are not acceptable to us and indignity of labour is just one of them. We hope you will respect our decision.
