Harry Styles has posed topless while wearing fishnet tights and Gucci loafers for Beauty Papers magazine.

The Adore You hitmaker fronts the eighth issue of the British publication, and in one of the smouldering photos from the androgynous shoot, shot by Casper Wackerhausen-Sejersen, Harry’s tattoo collection is on display as he sits in a chair wearing nothing but the tights and shoes.

Another snap sees the former One Direction singer rocking a navy blue Gucci suit jacket with matching flared trousers, along with black PVC gloves and ’70s-inspired bronze smokey eye make-up and pink lips.

And according to the singer’s stylist Harry Lambert, the 26-year-old is wearing the Gucci Beauty lipstick in They Met in Argentina.

“Introducing Mr. Harry Edward Styles who collaborated with #beautypapers in an issue that viscerally responds to the shrinking freedoms of our world with an explosion of individuality, creativity, diversity and unity,” a Beauty Papers representative wrote on its Instagram page.

Thousands of eager fans of the Sign of the Times singer were so keen to see the racy shoot that they caused the Beauty Papers’ website to crash.

Soon after the photos were unveiled, a Beauty Papers rep announced: “Beautiful people, our website as you know, is down due to an overwhelming response. Please hold tight… thank you.”

Harry has previously discussed the attention his unique style has received, and he told British newspaper The Guardian that he doesn’t see gender when it comes to clothes.

“What women wear. What men wear. For me it’s not a question of that. 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,” he stated.

Harry Styles appeared to pay a touching tribute to his ex-girlfriend Caroline Flack by wearing a black ribbon on his suit jacket at the 2020 BRIT Awards.

The Adore You hitmaker hit the red carpet at The O2 in London on Tuesday night wearing a maroon Gucci suit, which he paired with a broderie anglaise collared shirt, purple sweater, purple nails, and a pearl necklace.

Eagle-eyed fans spotted the black ribbon on the lapel on his designer suit, and he was also seen wearing a badge with the words, ‘Treat People with Kindness’ badge, according to editors at Digital Spy.

Harry first met Caroline, who presented The X Factor spin-off show The Xtra Factor, during his stint on the ITV talent show, and the pair dated for three months in 2011.

The 40-year-old Love Island presenter tragically died on Saturday after taking her own life at her home in London, and an inquest into her death opened on Wednesday.

Elsewhere at the star-studded bash, the former One Direction singer stunned with two extravagant outfit changes. He wore a custom-made white Gucci lace jumpsuit complete with fluted cuffs and matching gloves to perform his emotional track Falling at the awards ceremony.

The 26-year-old then changed into a banana yellow suit from Marc Jacobs’s spring/summer 2020 womenswear collection and teamed the outfit with a lilac shirt and ruffled high collar.

However, the suit was later ruined by BRITs host Jack Whitehall, who accidentally spilled a glass of wine on it.

Ed Sheeran shed 50 pounds after trolls labelled him ‘fat’

Ed Sheeran lost 56 pounds (25 kilograms) after cruel online trolls targeted him over his weight.

The Beautiful People hitmaker slimmed down from approximately 224 pounds to 168 pounds (100 kilograms to 75 kilograms) after social media users started pointing out that he’d gained weight.

“I never had insecurities and people pointed them out – your brain starts thinking about them,” he said on the Behind The Medal podcast.

The star added that the attention surrounding his body image resulted in him sitting out of his first four music videos, because he felt pressure to get into shape like “the One Direction boys and Justin Bieber”.

“(There were) all these people who had six-packs and I was kind of like, ‘Oh, should I look like this?'” the 28-year-old mused.

Yet, Ed also insisted he’s not letting the negativity get to him too much, as he believes the criticism “all stems from other people’s insecurities”.

“So many people have things they’re insecure about so it makes them feel better to point out someone else’s,” the singer shared. “Because half the people that would point out that I’m fat are probably fat themselves.”

And it seems Ed is now happy to appear in his music videos, as he is currently starring alongside his wife Cherry Seaborn in the clip for Put It All on Me. The couple shot their footage in their London apartment, with the romantic video also featuring other couples dancing to the tune.

Back in July, Ed confirmed he and his childhood friend and former high school classmate Cherry, 27, had got married, and the video revealed they tied the knot in January.

Harry Styles has teamed up with Gucci’s Alessandro Michele to design a limited-edition T-shirt in support of his new album Fine Line.

The Sign of the Times singer and the Gucci creative director have become frequent collaborators and close friends in recent years, with the One Direction star appearing in campaigns for the Italian fashion house’s tailoring collections and new genderless fragrance as well as wearing Gucci outfits on tour, at the 2019 Met Gala, and on the cover of his new album Fine Line.

To celebrate the release of his second solo record, Harry has teamed up with the fashion designer once again to create a limited-edition white T-shirt which features a line drawing of a red bleeding heart being pierced by a black arrow. The 25-year-old’s name features inside the heart, while the words Fine Line appear on the outside.

The unisex eco-conscious top is made from sustainable materials and is helping raise funds for the Global Fund for Women, a nonprofit foundation funding women’s human rights initiatives.

The Harry Styles + Alessandro Michele Fine Line Tee was unveiled on Harry’s official merchandise site on Monday and will only be available until Thursday. It costs $74.95 (£57) and comes with a copy of Fine Line, which was released on Friday.

In addition, Harry has partnered with officials at Live Nation to create Fine Line pop-up merchandise shops which are running in London, Los Angeles, and New York this week. The temporary stores will stock exclusive designs, including T-shirts, satin bomber jackets, and tote bags, which range in price from $14.50 (£11) to $99 (£75).

Harry Styles has found embracing androgynous fashion to be very liberating.

In recent years, the Adore You hitmaker has built up a reputation for sporting bold outfits, including sheer shirts, colourful Gucci shirts, and fun accessories.

Yet, in a new interview with The Guardian, Harry explained that while he is very excited to be experimenting with clothes, his outfits aren’t references to his sexuality.

“Am I sprinkling in nuggets of sexual ambiguity to try and be more interesting? No,” he told the publication. “I tend to make decisions in terms of collaborators I want to work with. I want things to look a certain way. Not because it makes me look gay, or it makes me look straight, or it makes me look bisexual, but because I think it looks cool.”

And Harry confessed he has finally become comfortable enough in his own skin to express himself through fashion.

“A part of it was having, like, a big moment of self-reflection. And self-acceptance. I think it’s a very free, and freeing, time. I think people are asking, ‘Why not?’ a lot more. Which excites me,” the 25-year-old noted.

The former One Direction singer also shared his views on gender in fashion and said he doesn’t mind if he wears clothes that were designed for women.

“What women wear. What men wear. For me, it’s not a question of that. 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,'” he stated. “I think the moment you feel more comfortable with yourself, it all becomes a lot easier.”

Liam Payne trained hard to get in shape for Hugo Boss underwear campaign

Liam Payne spent 90 per cent of his time in the gym over the past year to prepare for his Hugo Boss shoot.

The Strip That Down hitmaker recently shot a sizzling partially nude ad campaign for Hugo Boss underwear, something the 26-year-old had dreamed of to motivate himself while in the gym.

“Before we landed the deal with Hugo I’d gone into my gym and said, ‘I’m going to get an underwear commercial.’ I just wanted to do it; I knew I could do it. And then it actually happened! And I worked my a*s off and I’m still hitting the gym: I didn’t realise once you get on that thing you can’t really turn it off,” he told GQ Hype magazine.

The father-of-one revealed that he was at the gym for “90 per cent” of his time in an effort to look super ripped for the shoot with model Stella Maxwell, and the results have given him more self-confidence.

“It’s been a lot of training and being an athlete and working out – it became 90 per cent of my job for the best part of a year leading up to that shoot, which was crazy,” he explained. “Come 2019 everyone’s a lot more open about body image and I wanted to get in shape. Not to show off my body to anyone else, I just knew that’s what would give the confidence on set. I didn’t want to arrive not ready and not looking like I’d worked hard to get there.”

The former One Direction singer also opened up on his decision to go sober for a year, confessing it was hard on his social life.

“I was the biggest recluse on the planet. I would get up at 5am and go running in the park, but at night I would be in bed by 7pm. Is that a way to live your life?” he candidly shared.

Harry Styles stores his clothes in a frozen vault which is under surveillance 24 hours a day.

The former One Direction star has become known for his experimental and flamboyant style in recent years, and it has now been revealed his love of fashion extends to the aftercare of the outfits as well.

According to his frequent collaborator, designer Harris Reed, Styles doesn’t just stow old garments away in a closet for safekeeping, he makes sure they are well looked after in a temperature-controlled archive.

“I can’t say where it is located, but everything goes to an archive,” Reed explained to GQ. “It’s basically like a giant refrigerator – a frozen vault – somewhere in London where I am not going to disclose. But the clothes all have 24 hours surveillance, which you can look at via an iPad, specifically done for his outfits, and they have all been cryogenically frozen in time to preserve them. That’s also what is more surreal for me.

“After his first solo tour that I produced 14-15 looks for – he wore about six or seven – I was wondering where the others were and he was like, ‘Don’t worry, they are all under surveillance.’ I was like, ‘Oh, that’s chic.'”

Reed, who has been working with the popstar since 2017, gave the interview to discuss the blue sleeveless suit with flared trousers he designed for Styles’s new music video Lights Up, and revealed he made it in three days without the singer present.

“We didn’t have any time to do a fitting, so I had to fit the whole outfit on myself,” he shared. “Harry and I have very different body proportions, so we were just very lucky. I remember they flew to South America to shoot the video and Harry texted me, ‘It fits! It works!’ And I was in f**king heaven. I didn’t sleep for a solid three days doing that outfit, so I was thrilled.”

Liam Payne looked to former Calvin Klein underwear model Mark Wahlberg for inspiration when starring in his stripped-down Hugo Boss campaign.

The One Direction singer wowed in the jaw-dropping ads earlier this year, and in a new interview, has now revealed that the Hollywood actor had a hand in helping him prepare.

“I love Mark, he’s amazing…. when I got to the underwear commercial, the first picture I saw was a reference of Mark from years ago,” he said in a sit down with the Australian radio show Smallzy’s Surgery.

Wahlberg himself was a boy band member, fronting the pop group Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch at the time of the promo in 1992.

“He is such a great role model to have in this business, he’s also had a really similar lifestyle like the one I’ve had so far,” the 26-year-old shared.

Liam, who had the opportunity to train with the star in Los Angeles prior to the shoot, also hopes to follow in his footsteps when it comes to his future work.

“He started in a band, then you know he’s doing the modelling and the underwear commercial, and obviously he’s had an amazing career since,” he added.

The photoshoot was shot by Mert Alaş and Marcus Piggott, with Robbie Spencer serving as creative director. In addition, Liam has teamed with designers at Hugo Boss on the Hugo x Liam Payne line, with items unveiled as part of Berlin Fashion Week last July.

The partnership marked the first apparel campaign from the brand to be fronted by a celebrity, with the likes of Jared Leto and Zac Efron previously appearing fragrance ads.

Harry Styles turned down the role of Prince Eric in the live-action The Little Mermaid so he could focus on making new music.

It was announced earlier this month that the singer, 25, had turn down the opportunity to star opposite Halle Bailey as mermaid Ariel’s human love interest Eric in Rob Marshall’s remake of the 1989 animated classic.

And in a new interview with The Face magazine, he revealed that a possible role for him “was discussed” but never confirmed, leaving him free to pursue his solo music career instead.

“I want to put music out and focus on that for a while,” Harry explained. “But everyone involved in it was amazing, so I think it’s going to be great. I’ll enjoy watching it, I’m sure.”

Confirming that he had declined to star as Prince Eric, his representative recently released a statement which read: “While he was a fan of the project, he has respectfully declined the offer.”

At the time, fans of the former One Direction singer had speculated he had turned down the role to concentrate on making his second album, or to even reunite with his bandmates Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Niall Horan.

Elsewhere in the interview, the Dunkirk star also opened up about losing out to Austin Butler for the role of Elvis Presley in Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming movie, and insisted he wasn’t bitter about not getting the part.

“I feel like if I’m not the right person for the thing, then it’s best for both of us that I don’t do it, you know?” he shared. “(Elvis) was such an icon for me growing up. There was something almost sacred about him, almost like I didn’t want to touch him.”

Actor Christian Navarro has added his name to the list of hopefuls dreaming of landing the role of Prince Eric in The Little Mermaid.

Previously, Harry Styles was in talks to play human prince Eric opposite Halle Bailey as mermaid Ariel in Rob Marshall’s upcoming live-action reboot of the 1989 animated Disney classic, however, a representative for the One Direction singer later confirmed he had passed on the role.

But now it appears 13 Reasons Why star Navarro is keen for the opportunity to dive into the project and has made a direct appeal to star in the movie.

The 28-year-old recently retweeted a post about Styles’s exit, adding: “Well… I can sing. Black Ariel/Latino Prince… no ones called but Season 3 (of 13 Reasons Why) drops next week and (I) think it’s one hell of an audition (sic).”

And it seems Disney bosses were impressed with Navarro’s direct approach to land an audition and got the ball rolling.

“@disney saw this, saw your support, and gave my team a call,” he tweeted. “They wanted to see what I could do. Tapes sent. Fingers crossed. Let’s make some history… Let me know! @DisneyStudios.”

Melissa McCarthy is reportedly in talks to play the villainous Ursula, with Javier Bardem in the running for King Triton. Awkwafina and Jacob Tremblay have been attached to play Scuttle and Flounder, respectively.

Meanwhile, Shazam! star Asher Angel has also revealed he is auditioning for the role of Prince Eric, telling reporters at Entertainment Tonight, “I went in for it. It means so much to me. I started off doing musical theatre.”
