Singer Harry Styles became the first solo man to grace the cover of the December issue of Vogue Friday, posing in gender-fluid clothing, including a Gucci ball gown. 

“There’s so much joy to be had in playing with clothes,” Styles told Vogue. 

The former One Direction star and 2019 Met Gala co-host discussed his love for fashion. Styles refuses to be held down by traditional standards of gender. 

“When you take away ‘There’s clothes for men and clothes for women,’ once you remove any barriers, obviously you open up the arena in which you can play,” Styles said. 

Styles also talked about his newest album, Fine Line, his second solo album. Music videos for the tracks “Watermelon Sugar” and “Golden” racked up millions of views on YouTube.  

“I think the second album I let go of fear and getting it wrong and it was really joyous and really free,” Styles said. 

Fans will be happy to know that Styles is looking forward to touring again in the future.

“I’ve felt really lucky to have a group of incredibly generous fans,” Styles said. “They’re generous emotionally– and when they come to the show, they give so much that it creates this atmosphere that I’ve always found so loving and accepting.”  

Styles shared the Vogue photoshoot with his sister, Gemma Styles, who told Vogue that Style’s passion for dressing up goes back to childhood. 

“My mum always loved to dress up,” Gemma Styles said. 

Styles performed an acoustic rendition of his song, “Cherry,” for Vogue.
