Harry Styles Becomes Vogue’s First Solo Male Cover Star

The latest addition to an already impressive list of accomplishments, Harry Styles makes history as the very first male to grace the cover of the world-renowned Vogue magazine.

Most recently recognized for his fashion-forward, gender-bending outfits, the British-born Styles explains the thought process behind his clothing choices. Fittingly, the cover features him in a full-length gown, designed by Gucci’s Alessando Michele, paired with tailored tuxedo jacket.

In a statement regarding the ensembles, the former One Direction member said: “As a kid I definitely liked fancy dress…. I was really young, and I wore tights for [a school play]. I remember it was crazy to me that I was wearing a pair of tights. And that was maybe where it all kicked off!” “What women wear. What men wear. For me it’s not a question of that,” Styles told The Guardian last year. “If I see a nice shirt and get told, ‘But it’s for ladies.’ I think: ‘Okaaaay?’ Doesn’t make me want to wear it less though… I think the moment you feel more comfortable with yourself, it all becomes a lot easier.”

The Harry Styles images were taken by the highly sought-after photographer Tyler Mitchell who’s career was propelled to great heights in 2018 when he, too, made history by becoming the first Black photographer to shoot a Vogue cover. Appropriately, Beyoncé was his subject for that occasion.
