Billy Porter and Cardi B have dominated Google’s list of red carpet searches for 2019.

Analysts at the search engine have released their annual Year in Search report, with the Pose star nabbing the top spot.

In recent years, the actor has built up a reputation for his extravagant ensembles, with notable outfits including the Christian Siriano tuxedo ballgown he wore to the Academy Awards in February and the Cleopatra-inspired sequinned jumpsuit with 10-foot wings he debuted at the Met Gala in May.

Cardi landed in second place, with the Bodak Yellow rapper having made some serious sartorial choices in the past 12 months, such as the vintage Mugler ensemble she donned for the Grammy Awards and the oxblood red gown by Thom Browne that she chose for the Met Gala.

Boundary-pushing fashionista Lady Gaga took the third sport, which is perhaps unsurprising considering the interest she garnered online when she sported four different Brandon Maxwell outfits to the Met Gala, as well as a stunning strapless black Alexander McQueen ballgown to the Oscars, where she was nominated for her performance in A Star Is Born.

Interestingly, Gaga was followed on the list by “Amy Schumer husband”. The comedy star’s husband Chris Fischer attended several red carpet events with her this year, while Jenny McCarthy took fifth place and K-pop sensation BTS ranked sixth. Caitlyn Jenner, Richard Madden, Brie Larson, and “Brienne of Tarth” – also known as Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie – rounded out the top 10.

Among the Fashion Style searches for 2019 were topics such as “camp style”, “Egirl style”, “Eboy style”, and “Steampunk style”, while biker shorts, white jeans, and leather trousers were also top search terms.

Amy Schumer lines up first post-pregnancy film role

Actress Amy Schumer will return to work following the impending birth of her first child in a movie adaptation of Broadway play The Humans.

The Snatched star, who is heavily pregnant with husband Chris Fischer’s baby, will join former The Walking Dead actor Steven Yeun, Richard Jenkins, Beanie Feldstein, and Jane Houdyshell in the project.

The Humans playwright Stephen Karam will pen the film’s script and also serve as director, reports Deadline.

The one-act play, which debuted on Broadway in 2016, focused on the Blake family’s Thanksgiving holiday gathering, held at a run-down New York City apartment. The celebrations quickly ended as the relatives bickered about religion, illnesses, and economy worries.

It won four Tony Awards in 2016, including Best Play and Best Featured Actress in a Play for Houdyshell. She will reprise her role as family matriarch Deirdre for the big screen adaptation.

Top producer Scott Rudin will help to develop the film version. A projected release date has yet to be set.

The Humans will mark Schumer’s first movie gig as a mother, and her first following romantic comedy I Feel Pretty last year (18).

The news of her casting emerges shortly after the release of a new profile piece in The New York Times, in which Amy admitted she was eager to get back to work following her maternity leave as she wanted to take “control” of her projects once again.

“I like all the things I’ve done, but my favourite is when I’m in control. The last two movies I didn’t write,” the 37-year-old star shared, referring to I Feel Pretty and Snatched. “I didn’t really have anything to say. I now do.”

She had tried to work through her pregnancy pains despite suffering from severe morning sickness condition hyperemesis gravidarum, but last month (Feb19), she was forced to cancel the last few dates of her comedy stand-up shows on doctors’ orders as she was no longer cleared to fly.

Amy Schumer only tried on one wedding dress in the lead-up to her nuptials.

The Trainwreck actress stunned fans when she confirmed on Thursday (15Feb18) that she had wed chef Chris Fischer in a ceremony held in Malibu, California earlier in the week.

Amy has since uploaded numerous photos of the event to her Instagram page, including snaps showing her posing in a white gown, with her stylist Leesa Evans now divulging that the star left her dress shopping to the very last minute.

“I woke up one morning last week and she said, ‘Chris and I are gonna get married on Tuesday. Call me when you wake up,'” she recalled to Entertainment Tonight of Amy’s request. “So, I called her when I woke up and was overjoyed. I said, ‘Well, I’ll round up some dresses,’ and she was like, ‘O.K., I’ll come over to your office later today.'”

Leesa pulled together a range of dresses for Amy to try on at her office, with the star bringing along her beau and some friends to help her choose.

But the 36-year-old star was instantly enamoured by the A-line dress with tulle skirt and spaghetti straps from Monique Lhuillier.

“She only tried on one dress. We both just felt it was so effortless,” the style expert explained. “I think the thing that Amy loved about it was that she didn’t have to wear any extra pieces with it. It was just so simple, easy and comfortable, and she didn’t wear heels. She just wore flats and she just felt so much like herself, you know?”

Leesa also shared that there were no formal invitations sent for the bash, and while the whole occasion was a whirlwind, she is thrilled Amy and Chris decided to tie the knot as they are “incredibly in love”.

Make-up artist Georgie Eisdell was in charge of Amy’s beauty look for the event, while hairstylist Riawna Capri did her hair.
