Harry Styles fired back at Conservative commentator Candace Owens on Wednesday after she criticized his appearance on the cover of Vogue magazine wearing a dress.
The pop star posted a picture on his Instagram of him wearing a ruffled blouse and eating a banana with the caption, “Bring back manly men,” the same words that the conservative commentator Owens used at the end of her original statement criticizing the cover, according to the Baltimore Sun.
Last month, Styles made history by becoming the first man to appear on the cover of U.S. Vogue by himself. The former One Direction member was photographed wearing a full-length, lace-trimmed Gucci gown, seen by some as in an unapologetic celebration of gender fluidity. “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,” Styles said. “To not wear [something] because it’s females’ clothing, you shut out a whole world of great clothes. And I think what’s exciting about right now is you can wear what you like. It doesn’t have to be X or Y,” he said. “Those lines are becoming more and more blurred.”
While some music fans and fashion-lovers were quick to praise Styles for his choice, Owens took to social media to express her feelings toward his statement. “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.”
