Harry Styles’ Grammy Fashion: Rainbow Jumpsuit Divides Social Media

Written by Oscar Holland, CNN

Harry Styles had an unforgettable night. Not only did he take home two Grammy Awards on Sunday night, but he also served up some of the most talked about outfits at the ceremony.

The former One Direction star started the night off in a plunging technicolor jumpsuit that revealed a collection of butterfly and bird tattoos on his otherwise bare chest. The colorful harlequin motif was brought to life by Swarovski crystals, while the legs of the sparkling garment flared out over a pair of white boots.

Although Styles often opts for red carpet looks — and even jumpsuits — from Italian brand Gucci, this one was designed by Egonlab, an up-and-coming French brand known for its genderless designs.

The outfit split social media, with comments ranging from “he can literally wear anything” to “looks like he forgot the jacket”. Others have dubbed the look an example of “clowncore”, while the singer has also drawn comparisons – both favorable and derogatory – to two of Britain’s most flamboyant pop icons: Elton John and David Bowie.

The jumpsuits became something of a signature look for Styles, who wore them regularly on stage during his Love On Tour. So it was no surprise that he had a second one ready for his highly anticipated Grammys performance.

Taking the stage for a rendition of the hit song “As It Was” (which you might recall featured a video of the singer wearing a – you guessed it – red sequin jumpsuit), the star opted for a less revealing, but no less exuberant version, number.

The performance drew a standing ovation from Taylor Swift, and her silver fringe design was also applauded online, although Twitter users also likened it to decorated decor. Christmas tree and a pair of metallic fringe curtains.

Styles, who is known for his bold and fluid fashion, opted for something more formal to receive his awards. Taking the stage to pick up the coveted Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album for ‘Harry’s House’, he looked dapper in a cropped white suit jacket and beige wide leg pants.

Even then, he couldn’t help but bring some sparkle to the outfit in a sparkly low-cut top.
