Pose star Billy Porter kicked off the Oscars red carpet by debuting another head-turning outfit.
The actor and fashion star was among the early arrivals on the red carpet at the annual film event in Los Angeles.
Porter chose a custom look from British designer Giles Deacon.

Alongside a picture of his elaborate outfit, he tweeted: “Welcome to the #academyawards2020. Let the fashion games begin!”.
The Emmy-winning star, who has also appeared in American Horror Story, made headlines with his outfit at the Grammy awards last month.
The talked-about outfit was from LA-based fashion house Baja East, and saw Porter combining a metallic aqua blue suit with a rotating, fringed hat which became the subject of internet memes.
Model Blac Chyna was also among the early arrivals, sporting a revealing thigh-high split.
Stars of Sir Sam Mendes’s 1917, George MacKay and Dean-Charles Chapman, opted for traditional tuxedos.
Joker actress Zazie Beetz channelled Old Hollywood glamour in a black sequinned two-piece by Thom Browne which was set off by an impressive diamond choker-style necklace.
Ahead of hitting the red carpet, Star Wars director Rian Johnson tweeted a picture of his cufflinks; miniature versions of porgs, the type of bird which first appeared in the 2017 Star Wars: The Last Jedi. In characteristically witty fashion, Jojo Rabbit director Taika Waititi replied to the tweet: “You’re dressed?? I’m still in bed.”
