Red Carpet Queens (and Kings)
There are some celebrities that take their love of fashion to regal heights that set new standards in daring, vision, and the ultimate in glamour. The red carpet beckons to many, and a select few continually serve looks that have unofficially entered them into the realm of red carpet royalty.

Ably holding down the court as the offspring of musical royalty, Tracee Ellis Ross’ effortless style has resonated with fans no matter what trend she delves into. Whether appearing on the red carpet in pinpoint accurate retro styled pantsuits or enveloping her model figure in tailored trousers and jackets from the latest runway collections, she knows how to make her presence known in colorful, bold choices that make a scene. Ross has not only mastered the art of lapels and cuffs, but takes her bespoke aspirations to the next level with vintage looks that play up her femininity.
In recent years, Billy Porter has emerged not just as a leading actor and producer, but also as a staunch LGBTQ+ activist and fashion icon. With each successive red carpet entrance, Porter directly defies tradition in custom genderless clothing that has brought unisex design to the forefront of fashion. His fashion is the truth, whether in a form-fitting floor-length ball gown or tailored pantsuit accentuated with knee-high leather boots. What Porter has done more than any other celebrity in mainstream fashion is push the conventional to unearth a growing trend towards fearless fashion that speaks volumes.
Although she may be a new name on the Hollywood scene in America, Eiza is no stranger to fashion, and her range of choices in fashion circles has quickly elevated her as a force worthy of attention. From customized wearable art to colorful pantsuits that have been tailored to perfection, Gonzalez’s style choices range from thigh-high split skirts to bespoke blazers that push fashion in a progressive way.
Vice President Kamala Harris
Arguably the most powerful woman to ever master the pantsuit, Vice President Kamala Harris leads the charge towards custom power dressing that maintains the fine balance between owning the room and a red carpet. Her signature style consists of sharp tailored monochromatic blazers and slim fit trousers featuring precision lapels and cuffs, plus the prerequisite pearl necklace as a mainstay accessory. As America enters a new era, the Vice President is demonstrating where women’s contemporary workwear is headed with chic suit options that any woman, no matter her size, emulate with confidence.
