The FX series Pose is a groundbreaking show that follows 1980s ball culture in New York. Set among the background of the luxurious opulence of ’80s New York, the rising HIV/AIDS pandemic, and the changing cultural and literary scene of the time, Pose follows underground queer competitions in dancing and drag. Oh, and it’s a musical. How much better can you get? Well, Pose also regularly features more trans actors than any other show and has the largest cast of out LGBTQ actors in a scripted series, ever. The cast features Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore, Hailie Sahar, and Angelica Ross, who co-star alongside Evan Peters, Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek, Billy Porter, Charlayne Woodard, Ryan Jamaal Swain, Dyllón Burnside, and Angel Bismark Curiel.
Pose received two Golden Globe nominations, and the cast came to slay the red carpet. Although the show didn’t take home a win last night, it didn’t seem to matter for the actors, who stunned on the red carpet. Dominique Jackson wore a full-length, white Marc Bouwer gown and Christian Louboutin sandals, along with Stefere & Henri Sillam jewelry and a Jeffrey Levinson clutch.
Indya Moore wore a stunning silver mesh dress by Louis Vuitton and accessories by Mateo and Anita Ko. “I feel like a superhero,” Moore said about her dress. “Something about it makes me feel very strong.”
Mj Rodriguez wore a full-length, floaty blue gown by Prabal Gurung, a socially conscious designer.
Perhaps most remarkable was Billy Porter’s pink and gold cap ensemble, which took designer Randi Rahm six months to make. Rahm told the Hollywood Reporter, “I immediately knew this look would be a very important statement for Billy in many ways. It needed to speak to his amazing personality, the importance of his role on the groundbreaking show Pose, as well as the message we collectively want to send to the world regarding the fluidity of fashion, tolerance and acceptance.”
