After the backlash of Harry Styles’ Vogue cover, his mom has come forward in order to defend him and his fashion choices.
Read on to find out what she had to say…
The former One Direction band member graced the cover for the prestigious fashion magazine’s December edition, and he did it spectacularly.
And now his mother has jumped in to defend her son. And she had an explanation for all the haters…
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, by everybody, I mainly mean the right-wing author, Candace Owens.
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.
And, of course, she isn’t the least bit sorry.
“Since I’m trending I’d like to clarify what I meant when I said ‘bring back manly men.’ I meant: Bring back manly men. Terms like ‘toxic masculinity,’ were created by toxic females. Real women don’t do fake feminism. Sorry, I’m not sorry.”
While appearing on the British talk show Lorraine, his mom claimed she had a massive part to play in her son’s fashion choices.
“I think maybe I had something to do with it because I was always a big fan of doing fancy dress with the kids when they were smaller, which Gemma hated but Harry always embraced,” Twist said. “Who doesn’t love doing a bit of dress up?”
She spoke to Vogue reiterating what her mother said on the show.
Other superstars such as Olivia Wild, Elijah Wood, and Jameela Jamil, also supported Harry for his photoshoot.
“I think you’ve missed the definition of what a man is. Masculinity alone does not make a man,” he wrote. “In fact, it’s got nothing to do with it.”
Well, we think Harry Styles looks bloody amazing.
