Sweet creature! Harry Styles won over the fashion critics at the 2019 Met Gala on Monday, May 6, and also earned a bevy of reactions on Twitter.
The 25-year-old, who is the youngest to co-host the art gala, donned a sheer Gucci blouse, tuxedo pants, patent heeled boots and one pearl earring, drawing from Twitter a bevy of comparisons to Johannes Vermeer’s Girl With the Pearl Earring.
“It's time to try something new hopefully shock and inspire in a different way,” the creative director said of Styles’ look at the gala. “I know the fans love his outfits, so hopefully they will love what’s to come. This is a more subtle form of camp which I love.”
The evening’s exhibition “Camp: Notes on Fashion” is a nod to Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay “Notes on ‘Camp’” and draws the theme of silly and sublime. Susan Sontag's 1964 essay defines camp as "love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration."
Styles, as fans perfectly expressed below, pulled off the gender-fluid look beautifully.
