Living in ‘Style’!


Harry Styles, the singer, songwriter and actor from Holmes Chapel in Cheshire, UK, and the former member of the boy band, One Direction, has become the sweetheart of millions and millions of people ever since his solo debut in 2010 on the British singing competition, The X Factor, where he sang, Isn’t She Lovely by Stevie Wonder.

Styles’s fan following spans generations, adding to his overall charm. He has several hits to his credit, ranging from What makes you beautiful, and One Thing, to Watermelon Sugar, and Golden.

His new album, Harry’s House, which has 13 songs, has become all the rage among his fans. One of the numbers, Matilda, has particularly garnered a lot of attention because of its relatability.

Styles, a born entertainer, has received several accolades, including two BRIT Awards, a Grammy Award, an Ivor Novello Award, and an American Music Award. He made his acting debut in Christopher Nolan's 2017 war film, Dunkirk. Aside from singing and acting, he is famous for his flamboyance and fashion sense. He is the first man to appear solo on the cover of Vogue.

Other than his angelic voice, Styles’s down-to-earth nature and child-like simplicity have greatly enhanced his appeal among his fans. A big supporter of the LGBTQ+ community, he has gone out of his way to make his fans feel comfortable with their sexuality, even waving Pride flags at his concerts.

Coming back to his music career, Styles’s latest hit, As It Was, highlights his grievances, personal experiences, and feelings. Being a private person in general, watching him open up about his feelings is what makes the song all the more special for the fandom.

As for his acting, after his debut in Dunkirk, he was seen as Starfox in the movie Marvel Eternals. He also played the lead role in Don’t worry Darling and My Policeman.

Styles is also famous for his gender-fluid fashion choices. From wearing nail polish to gowns, he lives his life on his own terms, without caring for the backlash that he receives from the conservative sections of society. He once said, “I find myself looking at women’s clothes, thinking they are amazing”. He is also reported to have said that dresses don’t have gender, they can be worn by anyone.

Many of his fans say he has unknowingly saved the lives of thousands with his music. While that may, or may not be so, the fact remains that Styles has touched countless people with his songs, making them feel connected and less alone.

Here’s what he said during a show in Stockholm, Sweden, in November 2017: “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 wanna be — I support you. I love every single one of you."

Way to go, Harry!
