Harry Styles has been keeping a low profile while working on his first feature film, Christopher Nolan’s upcoming Second World War epic “Dunkirk”, but now that he’s about to launch a career as a solo artist he’s re-emerging on the cover of a magazine sporting a whole new look.
Actually, that’s three new looks in three different covers for “Another Man”, with the One Direction star channelling the styles of the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s in a trio of covers shot by photographers Alasdair McLellan, Willy Vanderperre and Ryan McGinley.
In the 1960s shot, Styles wears a Beatles-style mop-top wig and looks remarkably like a young David Bowie during his pre-Ziggy Stardust incarnation, while a groovy 1970s-themed shot portrays Styles as a full-on hippie. The 1980s shot — which appears to feature Styles’ actual hair — is more of a punk rock look, complete with Sex Pistols-style dog collar.
All three covers popped up today on Styles’ Instagram page along with a date — Sept. 29, 2016 — apparently indictating the release date of the mag’s Autumn/Winter 2016 issue, in which he’s interviewed by Paul McCartney and Chelsea Handler.
“If you can step outside of the craziness and appreciate it for the fact that it’s extraordinary, see it as this amazing thing, for a second, it’s alright,” Styles tells the former Beatle, while he tells Handler: “I just like hanging out quietly with friends and family. I don’t think I’m weird about it, I just like having time with friends, that’s what’s normal to me.”
