The color of the dress is a coincidence, but you can see why Warren supporters are liking this tweet!
That’s Billy Porter at the Critics Choice Awards, per Vogue:
Billy Porter knows how to make an entrance. Since his dramatic arrival at last year’s Met Gala, the Pose star has continued to dominate the red carpet in theatrical fashion—making his 2020 award season debut in a suit-gown hybrid with a white feathered train at the Golden Globes last week. Keeping up the momentum, the Tony Award-winning actor took the blue carpet at the Critics’ Choice Awards tonight in a seafoam green Hogan McLaughlin jumpsuit with a flurry of hand-painted butterflies adorning his chest and arms.
“Billy’s intention [was] to embrace freedom,” explained groomer and the artist behind the designs, Anna Bernabe. “Butterflies represent a personal metamorphosis. The multiple butterflies [all over his body symbolize] the numerous transformations and rebirths one goes through during a lifetime.” According to the pro, the application to Porter’s neck, chest, and back took over an hour…
And that reminded me about the most interesting toy I saw written up from this year’s CES, in the Washington Post:
Temporary tattoo printer: Prinker
Temporary tattoo technology hasn’t changed much in recent years. You can buy them, order custom designs online or print your own on special paper at home. But a new device called the Prinker makes temporary tattoos mobile for spontaneous people who don’t want to commit to forever ink. The handheld printer can apply cosmetic-grade ink to the skin in black or color just by quickly passing it once over the chosen body part. Images are selected from a companion app, or you can add your own. It can only print graphics up to an inch wide, so a full tattoo sleeve would take a while, but the only limit on the length of a tattoo is the length of your body. While the final product doesn’t smudge or fade much, it does wash off easily with soap and water.
Cost is $269, available in mid-2020.
At that price point, there’s gonna be a Prinker in every strip-mall nail salon by the 2020 holiday season. (And probably in a lot of middle schools / afterschool enrichment programs, too, as a ‘learn to code’ gimmick to keep kids interested.)
