The oh-so-conservative Ms. Owens was not impressed by the dress.
“There is no society that can survive without strong men,” Owens tweeted. “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,” she hissed in closing.
Today, Styles posted a photo of himself wearing a light blue suit complete with fluffy shirt sleeves while eating a banana.
His caption was brilliant in its simplicity: “Bring back manly men.”
The post has received over 6.5 million ‘Likes’ in less than a day.
Owens reportedly commented on Styles’ post but it, to be honest, was too hard for me to scroll through all the love sent his way in the comments. Pretending to be oblivious to his sarcasm, she wrote, “Thank God you agree.”
Unable to resist her ugly nature, though, she threw in another catty remark writing, “He looks great! He just doesn’t look masculine.”
In his Vogue cover interview, Styles shared his view of exploring the possibilities of fashion and referenced pop music royalty as his inspirations.
“The people that I looked up to in music—Prince and David Bowie and Elvis and Freddie Mercury and Elton John—they’re such showmen,” he told Vogue. “As a kid it was completely mind-blowing. Now I’ll put on something that feels really flamboyant, and I don’t feel crazy wearing it. I think if you get something that you feel amazing in, it’s like a superhero outfit. Clothes are there to have fun with and experiment with and play with.”
Regarding the nasty tilt Owens clearly assigned to her conservative bent, it’s notable that Styles has been vocal about his support for all of his fans.
At several concerts in the past, he’s carried rainbow flags and declared his love for every fan: “If you are black, if you are white, if you are gay, if you are straight, if you are transgender – whoever you are, whoever you want to be, I support you and I love every single one of you.”
