Billy Porter stepped onto the 2020 Grammys red carpet in a glittery turquoise jumpsuit designed by Scott Studenberg of Baja East and stole the show with a motorized crystal fringe hat. The entire look was styled by creative director Sam Ratelle, with the hat made by celebrity milliner Sarah Sokol and Smooth Technology, a New York City-based group of artists and engineers. While on the red carpet, the hat worked as a curtain to reveal Billy Porter’s face for the cameras, creating another memorable red carpet moment for the star.
Insider producers Caroline Aghajanian and Manny Silva-Paulus spoke with Sam Ratelle and Sarah Sokol about how the entire look came to be and how to recreate it on a budget. At the end of their journey, Sam and Sarah pick which producer they think DIY-ed the look the best.
Special thanks to Sam Ratelle and Sarah Sokol for being a part of this video.
