Harry Styles’ mother has spoken out about her son’s appearance on Vogue cover and defended his decision to wear a dress.
The 26-year-old former One Direction singer made history as he became the first solo male to hit the cover of US Vogue. For the special occasion, the 26-year-old sported a ball gown and a Gucci jacket.
After making the headlines, Styles was dubbed ‘brave’ by many for daring to challenge the norms by crossdressing.
Not everyone, however, was pleased by the portrayed fashion, whereas conservative commentator Candace Owens slammed the singer’s outfit and called for people to “bring back manly men.”
Defending the 26-year-old was his 51-year-old mother, Anne Twist, who opened up about the divisive topic of crossdressing.
“I think maybe I had something to do with it because I was always a big fan of doing fancy dress with the kids when they were smaller, which his sister hated but Harry always embraced. But who doesn’t love doing a bit of dress up?” the proud mom said on ITV’s Lorraine.
Anne’s comments came via a video call on Tuesday, shortly after Owens started a heated debate on social media by suggesting our society is being attacked through “the steady feminization of our men.”
“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,” Owens tweeted on November 14 as she shared Vogue Magazine’s post about Harry Styles.
“Bring back manly men.”
Two days later, after suffering a backlash, the critic doubled down on her comment by saying:
“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.”
