Harry covered Vogue's 2020 December issue in a Gucci ball gown.

Harry Styles is being defended by his fans and celebrities after conservative political commentator and author Candace Owens called him out for wearing a dress on the cover of Vogue.

Last week (Nov 13), the 'Watermelon Sugar' singer was unveiled as the cover star of Vogue's December 2020 issue. Harry is the first man in history to grace the cover of Vogue solo and he did so in a Gucci couture gown that only he could pull off.

In the issue, Harry discussed his fondness of wearing women's clothing. He said: "I'll go in shops sometimes, and I just find myself looking at the women’s clothes thinking they’re amazing. It’s like anything – anytime you’re putting barriers up in your own life, you’re just limiting yourself. There’s so much joy to be had in playing with clothes. I’ve never really thought too much about what it means – it just becomes this extended part of creating something."

For some reason, Candace Owens (who famously got into a spat with Cardi B) felt the need to share her thoughts on Harry's cover even though no-one actually asked. She 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."


Fans soon started to defend Harry's fashion choices.

A number of celebrities also called out Candace for her wild comments.

Despite the backlash, Candace doubled down on her initial comments. She added: "Since I'm trending I'd like to clarify what I meant when I said ‘bring back manly men. I meant: Bring back manly men. Terms like ‘toxic masculinity,' were created by toxic females. Real women don't do fake feminism. Sorry I'm not sorry."

Harry hasn't publicly commented on Candace's comments but needless to say anyone has the right to wear whatever they want without the fear of judgment.
