Many people have sent in their praises about Harry Styles’ Vogue cover shoot, and now, so has Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez…
The former One Direction band member graced the cover for the prestigious fashion magazine’s December edition, and he did it spectacularly.
Including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
With him regularly donning more “feminine” outfits and looks.
Yep, Harry has become the first man to feature on the cover of Vogue U.S in 127 years, and he wore a series of dresses and skirts to commemorate it.
It’s needless to say that most people are loving Harry in a dress…
And many have applauded the young singer for breaking down toxic gender stereotypes in his photoshoot.
As well as pose in dresses and skirts, Harry also partook in a lengthy interview, wherein he discussed his stance on the stereotypes surrounding clothing and fashion choices.
In his interview with the fashion publication, he said:
“Clothes are there to have fun with and experiment with and play with. What’s really exciting is that all of these lines are just kind of crumbling away. When you take away ‘There’s clothes for men and there’s clothes for women,’ once you remove any barriers, obviously you open up the arena in which you can play.”
“I’ll go to shops sometimes, and I just find myself looking at the women’s clothes thinking they’re amazing. It’s like anything—anytime you’re putting barriers up in your own life, you’re just limiting yourself. There’s so much joy to be had in playing with clothes. I’ve never really thought too much about what it means – it just becomes this extended part of creating something.”
“As a kid, I definitely liked fancy dress,” he explained. “I was really young, and I wore tights for that [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!”
And right-wing author, Candace Owens, was among those hating on the star.
And begged for the world to “bring back manly men.”
“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.”
“Men in ball gowns is not a thing. Sorry I’m not sorry. Conservatives are done bending to the weird, perverted will of the left and their Hollywood cohorts.
Feminine women don’t need to sit back and allow uglier women preach to them about why “normal” is wrong.”
“Masculine men don’t need to listen to feminized men tell them about how “stunning” and “brave” it would be if they castrated themselves in front of the world.
“It’s a new day. We’re no longer the silent majority.”
Triggered was an understatement.
Which was only a matter of time, wasn’t it?
The TV personality branded Harry as a “bit weird” for sporting a dress for the photo shoot during Good Morning Britian.
Discussing the outfit, Piers asked: “Why do men need to wear dresses?”
“I’m not saying I’m against it, I’m not saying I’m for it. I’m just saying it’s all a bit weird.”
“For the same reason women are allowed to wear trousers if we want to,” to which Piers replied: “But Harry Styles just looks a bit weird here.”
“I mean, he’s not going to go out, is he, for dinner like this?”
Because a large majority of people loved it, including Democratic politician Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
To which she responded perfectly by saying, “It looks wonderful.”
While his hair gave her “James Dean vibes”.
She went on to explain why some people in society are mad about it.
“Some people are mad at it because some folks are very sensitive to examining and exploring gender roles in society.”
“If it does, then maybe that’s part of the point. Sit with that reflection and think about it, examine it, explore it, engage with it, and grow with it.”
“What’s the point of creating things if they don’t make people think? Or feel or reflect? Especially as an artist or creative? Who wants to see the same things all the time? And never explore their assumptions?”
AOC finished her story by perfectly summing up what we are all thinking.
She then used the opportunity to acknowledge the fact that while Harry’s place on the cover is an important moment, we should also recognize underrepresentation.
