Harry Styles cast a subtle shade at Candace Owens on Wednesday in response to criticism from the political scientist on his cover of Vogue, in which he donned a Gucci ball gown.
“Bring back the manly men,” he captioned a photo of himself wearing a powder blue suit and ruffled shirt while eating a banana.
In November, Owens, 31, tweeted the words Styles, 26, used in his caption.
The Conservative wrote: “No society can survive without strong men. The East knows it. In the West, the regular feminization of our men at the same time as Marxism is taught to our children is not a coincidence. It is an outright attack. Bring back the manly men.
Styles also responded to Owens’ remarks in a new interview with Variety on Wednesday, stating, “Don’t wear [something] because it’s women’s clothing, you’re excluding a whole world of great clothing. And I think what’s exciting right now is that you can wear whatever you like. It doesn’t have to be X or Y. These lines are increasingly blurry. ”
The “Watermelon Sugar” singer was Vogue’s first solo male cover star.
He told the publication he had an admiration for women’s clothing and was inspired by gender-bending artists like David Bowie, Prince, Elvis, Freddie Mercury, and Elton John, someone he admires. also music.
“Now I’m going to put on something that looks really flamboyant, and I don’t feel crazy wearing it,” Styles said. “I think if you get something that you feel amazing in, it’s like a superhero outfit. The clothes are there to have fun, experiment and play with. ”
He added: “What’s really exciting is that all of these lines are falling apart. When you remove “There are men’s clothes and there are women’s clothes,” once you remove the barriers, you obviously open the arena where you can play.
