The other Prince Harry stepped out in high Harry Styles style for the Grammys. We realize that sentence doesn’t make a whole lot of sense if you don’t follow these things, but the new prince of pop has been working this sort of vaguely femme vintage-inspired Gucci thing for a good while. We don’t think he’s quite peaked on this sort of look just yet, but these two entries into the Styles record have to be considered the ultimate in his “Fine Line” era rock star style.
We know this kind of look isn’t to a lot of people’s tastes and we absolutely recommend that anyone who wants to try to pull off the at-home version of this to consider that there’s really no such thing. This is performative fashion and the Grammys are the premiere entertainment industry visual branding event. Actors go to the Oscars dressed to remind the public that they can be so much more than their most recent role. Recording artists go to the Grammys to sell their latest song or album and the style choices tend to be much more akin to stage wear than high fashion. Granted, while this is custome, aesthetically, it’s all straight out of the Gucci look book. We don’t love it because it’s pretty or because we think it’s something more people should wear. We love it because it’s whimsical, vaguely queer, and boldly its own thing. No one else could make this work with such rock star aplomb.
This is just dead-fabulous. He doesn’t always go for the sexy-sexy, but when he wants to, he can really pull it off.
