Harry Styles’ American Vogue cover was slated by Fox News, who told him to stick to men’s clothing – and Twitter have rushed to his defence.
Singer Harry Styles has always been known for his unique style and individualism since One Direction split up. However, his outfit choices for the magazine cover were recently criticised by Fox News.
The news platform was slated by Fox News’ journalist Raymond Arroyo, who listed Harry’s outfits for the Vogue cover as “things to avoid in 2021”, which he went on to publicly criticise.
Almost instantaneously, the online world defended Harry’s outfit choices for the American Vogue cover, urging each other to wear what they want.

Host Raymond Arroyo introduced the subject as “culture”, stating that what he was about to say are “the things we want none of in 2021”.
During the public broadcast, he addressed Harry Styles with his American Vogue cover as a background image, and said:
Harry Styles, please stick to Armani menswear or at least pants. The gender-bending wardrobe is not edgy or artistic, you look ridiculous, and you’re not breaking any new ground.
He added: “David Bowie did this decades before you were even conceived, and the pearls are a really bad look.”
Fox News criticising Harry goes viral
Harry made history in November 2020, as the first man to ever appear on the cover of American Vogue by himself.

One fan said: “Can’t stop laughing at the Fox News guy who dared to insult Harry Styles. These people never learn. His fandom will destroy you.”
