Oscars 2019 Best Dressed: Billy Porter or Lady Gaga?

Nakuul Mehta is looking up to Ranveer Singh to give a befitting reply from Bollywood to Billy Porter's Oscars Red Carpet look. Porter was interviewing celebrities on the carpet during the lead-up to the show, often taking time to show off his look to the cameras.

"That Globes outfit changed everything for me".

Porter also discussed his queer identity and challenging both masculinity and femininity.
