Harry Styles continues to defy gender conventions by posing with a Gucci handbag for campaign shoot – after facing backlash for THAT dress

Harry Styles has once again shown he cares little for gender conventions as he took centre stage in Gucci’s latest campaign.

The former One Direction star, 27, who previously sparked backlash by posing for a Vogue cover in a dress, was a guest on the mock talk show The Beloved Show alongside pal James Corden with one of the brand’s most iconic pieces.

Harry has previously defended his decision to embrace his feminine side in an array of flamboyant looks, insisting in a previous interview the lines of gender are becoming ‘more and more blurred.’

For the campaign Harry brandished the iconic Jackie 1961 handbag, which was originally designed as a unisex piece back in the 1950s but has been a staple for many female stars.

The hitmaker appeared on a mock talk show with the iconic accessory, and continued to display his eye-catching fashion sense in a huge brown fur coat.

Harry’s ensemble was completed with blue flared jeans, and a multicoloured floral shirt for his interview with longtime friend James.

He joined a star-studded lineup posing Gucci’s latest campaign to showcase their array of handbags, including Dakota Johnson, Awkwafina, Sienna Miller and Diane Keaton.

Harry had previously mocked the controversy around his historic Vogue shoot which saw him don a ballgown after being the first male solo cover star of the magazine’s American version.

He even poked fun at comments made by conservative commentator Candace Owens, who claimed that ‘no society can survive without strong men.’

Posing for Variety magazine’s 2020 Hitmakers Issue late last year, Harry posted one of the shoot’s images on Instagram along with the caption: ‘bring back manly men.’ 

Speaking to Variety in an interview accompanying the striking new images, Harry said: ‘To not wear [something] because it’s females’ clothing, you shut off a whole world of great clothes.

‘And I think what’s exciting about right now is you can wear what you like. It doesn’t have to be X or Y. Those lines are becoming more and more blurred.’

Harry also previously spoke to Vogue about his love of bending the rules when it comes to gender and fashion.

He said: ‘Clothes are there to have fun with and experiment with and play with. What’s really exciting is that all of these lines are just kind of crumbling away. 

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

‘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.’
