Harry Styles Vogue cover controversy: All you need to know
Team Udayavani, Nov 21, 2020, 1:09 PM IST
Singer-Songwriter Harry Styles became the first-ever man to feature solo on the cover of Vogue in its 128-year long history. Added to the achievement was the fact that he was wearing a lilac blue Gucci ballgown, which had black lace trimmings, and the look was topped off with a black tuxedo jacket, all created by the creative director of Gucci, Alessandro Michele.
However, a few criticised the singer for wearing a dress for the photoshoot, with one Twitter user stating “bring back manly men”.
“There’s so much joy to be had in playing with clothes. I’ve never thought too much about what it means—it just becomes this extended part of creating something.”: Read our full December cover story starring @Harry_Styles here: https://t.co/yILujUQQae pic.twitter.com/qwpGKBSQey

The conservative commentator, Candace Owens, replied to Vogue’s tweet which shared images from Harry’s photoshoot saying, “There is no society that can survive without strong men. The East knows this. In the west, the steady feminization of our men at the same time that Marxism is being taught to our children is not a coincidence. It is an outright attack. Bring back manly men”
The tweet immediately received backlash and many celebrities rushed to defend Harry.
This is perfectly obvious. Anyone who pretends that it is not a referendum on masculinity for men to don floofy dresses is treating you as a full-on idiot. https://t.co/cioUNBh4bi

Harry Styles is plenty manly, because manly is whatever you want it to be, not what some insecure, toxic, woman-hating, homophobic dickheads decided it was hundreds of years ago. He’s 104% perfect. 🤘🏽

We don’t know who needs to hear this but Harry Styles looks amazing in a dress.

Harry Styles looks amazing in a dress, everyone should be able to wear whatever they want, and I’m forever grateful to the trans femmes and non-binary folks who pushed boundaries in fashion first.
