The red carpet at this year’s Grammys was pretty disappointing until Billy Porter stepped into the spotlight and stole the show. His dazzling hat with a remote-controlled fringe veil instantly gave us the best viral meme of the night.
Porter is no stranger to meme-worthy outfits, but his latest may just be his best one yet. He hit the red carpet at the Grammy Awards wearing a glittering blue jumpsuit, but his Sarah Sokol Millinery mechanical hat was the talk of the night.
Since the hat came with a remote-controlled fringe, Porter could reveal or hide his face whenever he saw fit, and this quirky characteristic proved to be meme gold. Twitter users quickly started dreaming of owning a hat like this one so they could glamorously avoid confrontations.
Billy Porter’s big reveal also perfectly encapsulates situations where we suddenly become interested in conversations that seemed boring at first, after hearing someone mention potato skins or happy hour. We expect we’ll be seeing it on our feeds for at least a few weeks before Porter gives us another meme-inducing red carpet look.
