Unveiled on March 17, the musician fronts the British magazine on its eighth issue and the pics are giving us some much-needed joy and inspiration. According to the magazine, this issue is one that “viscerally responds to the shrinking freedoms of our world with an explosion of individuality, creativity, diversity and unity.”
Beauty Papers itself “sets out to examine and explore the ideas that shape how we understand beauty today,” making it an ideal choice for Harry’s androgynous fashion and beauty vibe.
Apart from the [cover itself], where he poses shirtless in fishnet tights and loafers with his tattoo collection in full display, the whole issue seems to be packed with Harry goodness. He appears in a short video, where he wears a classic navy blue Gucci suit and tie alongside glowy bronze eye makeup that is the perfect encapsulation of Harry’s ‘70s-cool style.
In another photo set, which serves as the second cover, we see the same suit from the video, but in more detail. Harry paired the outfit, which comes complete with flared trousers, with crisp white socks and loafers, as well as shiny black gloves. According to stylist Harry Lambert, Harry is also wearing Gucci Beauty lipstick in “They Met in Argentina.” In true Harry fashion, the looks play with elements of masculine and feminine, blended up with classic rock style and a cheeky nod towards Old Hollywood.
As any Harry fan knows, the musician doesn’t let preconceived notions of gender define how he dresses. Nor does he let them define his artistic output. “Many borders are falling — in fashion, but also in music, films, and art,” he told L’Officiel in an interview. “I don’t think people are still looking for this gender differentiation. Even if the masculine and feminine exist, their limits are the subject of a game."
In the past, we’ve seen Harry rock everything from a sheer blouse at the Met Gala to a string of pearls to painted nails, all with aplomb.
“What women wear. What men wear. For me it’s not a question of that,” he previously told The Guardian. “If I see a nice shirt and get told, ‘But it’s for ladies.’ I think: ‘Okaaaay?’ Doesn’t make me want to wear it less though.”
It’s obvious that fashion and beauty are a huge part of Harry’s self-expression, and we love seeing his sartorial vision come to life with covers like these!
