The music industry’s sensational singer, Harry Styles first appeared in September 2011 in a boyband, One Direction and soon became a bearer of every woman’s fanatics with his curly hair, charm-heavy smile and his eccentric style. The trailblazer of gender-neutral clothing, the popstar appeared solo on the front cover of Vogue, marking a momentous occasion. Donned in a lilac blue Gucci gown with frothy lace trimmings and a double-breasted tuxedo jacket, the 26-year-old singer basks in the gender-fluidity of clothes under the eaves of a Victorian mansion in Notting Hill, photographed nonchalantly by Tyler Mitchell.
Having found peace in the uniformity of his sweatpants during the lockdown period, Styles relished the opportunity to dress up again with the fashion editor, Camilla Nickerson. The photoshoot weaved a narrative of busting gender norms within fashion. Harry styles photographed wearing a variety of couture dresses and skirts with his toned body prettily inscribed with tats of a Victorian sailor, a rose, mermaid, an anchor, a galleon, palm tree and the birth years of his mother and father on his clavicle.
A man of confidence, the singer loves playing dress up and is naturally in touch with his feminine side but with the growing appreciation for the sensational vocalist, conservatives like Ben Shapiro and Candace Owens attacked the cover tweeting, “bring back manly men.” Many gender conformists and ring-wingers called out the singer for breaking gender binary and were met with severe backlash from gender activists and the global LGBTQ+ community supporting the star passionately. The British singer may not be termed as anything revolutionary but he is definitely looking beautiful, balancing both the masculine and feminine elements of his guise.
