In becoming the first solo man to grace the cover of US Vogue – and in a dress – the singer has cemented his place at the vanguard of the movement
Harry Styles was unveiled as the first solo male cover star of US Vogue last week – and in a dress to boot. He wore a custom-made, lace-trimmed Gucci ballgown dressed with a tuxedo jacket.
Nine men have featured on the cover previously, but always as part of a couple. They include Kanye West, Justin Bieber and Styles’ former bandmate Zayn Malik. The cover of the December issue was photographed by Tyler Mitchell, who in 2018 became the first black photographer to shoot a US Vogue cover, featuring Beyoncé.
