Harry Styles Makes History With 'Vogue' Cover
Harry Styles played dress-up for the December issue of Vogue, including donning a Gucci dress with a tuxedo jacket for the cover.
The 26-year-old singer makes history as the first male to appear alone on the cover of Vogue in its 127-year history.
Inside, Styles models a variety of looks and opens up about his love for gender-bending fashion.
“The people that I looked up to in music – Prince and David Bowie and Elvis and Freddie Mercury and Elton John – they’re such showmen,” he explained. “As a kid it was completely mind-blowing. Now I’ll put on something that feels really flamboyant, and I don’t feel crazy wearing it. If you get something that you feel amazing in, it’s like a superhero outfit. Clothes are there to have fun with and experiment with and play with.
“What’s really exciting is that all of these lines are just kind of crumbling away. When you take away ‘There’s clothes for men and there’s clothes for women,’ once you remove any barriers, obviously you open up the arena in which you can play.”
Styles added: “I’ll go in shops sometimes, and I just find myself looking at the women’s clothes thinking they’re amazing. It’s like anything—anytime you’re putting barriers up in your own life, you’re just limiting yourself.”
The pop star also performed an acoustic version of his Fine Line track “Cherry” for Vogue. You can watch it below:
