Pop superstar and actor Harry Styles is posing for American Vogue’s December issue as the first solo male cover star in the fashion magazine’s history, wearing women’s clothes.
Styles, 26-years-old, posed in Vogue wearing garments by Gucci and other designers. Most shocking to readers is Vogue’s choice to put Styles in women’s clothes, not that he is the first solo male cover star.
The choice, though, seems fit considering Styles has been wearing androgynous clothes — particularly by Gucci’s Alessandro Michele — for years. At last year’s Met Gala, Styles wore a feminine sheer black blouse that could have easily been worn by the likes of Angelina Jolie or a young Rose McGowan.
On his last tour, the Dunkirk star’s wardrobe channeled the great male pop stars of the last century, including Elton John, David Bowie, Elvis Presley, Kurt Cobain, Freddie Mercury, and Iggy Pop.
