Billy shared this gorgeous throwback

But followers were quick to comment and call him "handsome" and "gorgeous".

"I remember that guy!!!" added another.

Billy recently struck a fierce pose at the O2 Arena in London for the BRIT Awards 2021, wearing a ThreeASFour black satin dress complete with lace sleeves paired with matching black and lace pants.

Stylist Ty Tyrone completed the look with a Stephen Jones fascinator, black and metallic Rick Owens boots, a metallic bag, and stunning Lorraine Schwartz diamond bangles.

The look was a little more toned down than his last appearance at the BRIT Awards.

Ahead of the pandemic in February 2020, Billy hit the carpet in a gold headpiece paired with a long gold coat and glittery shoes.

Before his arrival on Tuesday, Billy revealed his look to fans on Instagram, first appearing in a black long-sleeved top and black leather pants as he danced in a room that had a mural of Grace Jones on the wall.

"My goal is to be a walking piece of political art every time I show up. To challenge expectations. What is masculinity?" Porter previouly shared in an essay for Vogue.

"What does that mean? Women show up every day in pants, but the minute a man wears a dress, the seas part.”
