Serena Williams' Australian Open Outfit
Back in 2018, Serena Williams rocked a sleek black catsuit at the French Open that was also designed to help prevent blood clots. But when officials banned the outfit and called in disrespectful to the game, they had no idea what they were in for. In response to the controversy, Serena showed up a week later in fishnets and a tutu at the US Open. The fun continued in early 2019 when she showed up at the Australian Open and whipped off a trench coat to reveal a green romper and fishnets combo. The crowd, of course, went wild with glee.

Billy Porter's Gorgeous Black Gown
Tony Award-winning actor Billy Porter swept down the 2019 Oscars red carpet in a full-skirted black gown by Christian Siriano that nipped in at the waist and had a bodice cut like a tuxedo jacket. The scroll down effect on a screen was wonderful, as Porter's frilled collar and cuffs hint at a touch of style that the rest of the gown fully transcends. Porter told Vogue that one of the reasons for his dramatic look was to "challenge expectations," and encourage male actors to play with their style more.
He also revealed that he's been wanting to wear a ball gown for a long time but never knew when. It was attending Christian Siriano's show at New York Fashion Week that crystallized his vision to have the designer make him a gown to wear while hosting the red carpet pre-show.

Ricky Rebel's Pro-Trump Grammy Garb
Ricky Rebel left no doubts as to who he'll be voting for in 2020, as he stepped out on the Grammy's carpet this year wearing... this. Brandishing a jacket that appeared to be a mixture of garden rock speckled collar meets bedazzled political statement, he definitely stood out, for better or for worse. Although not quite as much as Joy Villa, who straight up showed up dressed as Trump's proposed border wall. Yes, really.
