In the past few days, a scandal has flared up on the network around the 26-year-old artist Harry Styles. The former member of One Direction has been criticized after taking part in a fashion photo shoot for the December issue of Vogue.
Styles became the first man in the history of an American publication to appear on the cover single-handedly. For a stylish photo shoot, Harry chose several fashionable designer looks, but on the cover the singer is captured in the most unexpected of them – a Gucci dress with a layered skirt decorated with frills. The look was completed by a black jacket.
Despite the fact that most of the celebrity fans were delighted with his outfit, there were also those who spoke out against such innovations. In particular, New York Times author Candice Owens criticized the choice of the image.
“There is no society that can survive without strong men,” – wrote Owens on Twitter. “The East knows this. In the West, there is a tendency towards the feminization of our men. This is a direct attack. Bring back courageous men ”, – called the activist.
Not only his loyal fans, but also colleagues and other Hollywood celebrities, including Olivia Wilde and Elijah Wood, immediately stood up to protect Harry. Styles himself, who has repeatedly appeared in public in feminine images, does not see anything wrong with this: “Clothes are for fun, experimentation and play“, – the performer explains his position.
