It was already discussed in another thread. It wasn't Siriano's idea. He just took it to a more refined and elevated level. 

I'm sure they both knew about Hector Xtravaganza in the below picture.

And I'll say it again here:

 

One is a tulle skirt over black pants.

 

The other is a black velvet gown with boning and I thought it had to have a hoop to flare so much and now that seems to be confirmed.  It might have been inspired but it is definitely not the same thing.

 

Christian's is next level.

I don't think Billy did it for shock value - just because others are shocked by it. From an interview from that day

As we all know through time and other cultures - Why do we deem some are acceptable and others are silly or ridiculous? If someone wasn't being silly or ridiculous- I would be wearing petticoats and a hopped skirt. Thank goodness for the first manly shock seeking women to don on pants.

@yahooey  granted, other cultures have men is robes, draped cloth and Scottish kilts.....but we, in America do not have a culture that have men in dresses--especially a tux-gown with a gargantuan skirt.....it appears he wants to be noticed and he achieved that notice.....what a creep is Billy Porter, who ever he is!

I didn't realize that you personally knew Billy Porter to evaluate him as a creep.

If not, I'd certainly not make a judgement as harsh based on someone wearing, what is essentially a costume for a gala event.

@Lyttlewyng  precisely my point....and I can judge Billy Porter, an entertainer, just as you, who do not know me, have judged me!
