As if we didn't think Harry Styles could be any more of a legend, he had to go and respond to Candace Owens, the author who trolled him for wearing a dress on the cover of US Vogue, in the classiest way possible.
This week, the singer shared a photo of himself eating a banana and dressed in a powder blue suit and ruffled blouse, with the caption: "Bring back manly men."
Boom. Enough said. Brilliant.
Last month, when Harry's Vogue Cover was released, Owens had tweeted: "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."
So, yeah, Styles' new post is almost definitely his riposte. He also seemed to respond to Owens in a recent interview with Variety, which saw him chatting about his style.
"To not wear [something] because it's females' clothing, you shut out a whole world of great clothes," he said. "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. Those lines are becoming more and more blurred." Preach!
Naturally, fans had a field day after Styles' posts. Best of below:
If all men around the world could just take note of Harry's attitude, the world would be a much more wonderful place, that's for sure.
