After some days of absence, we are here to share knowledge with you. This past weekend we dug a bit deeper into the unconventional ensemble Harry Styles wore to this year’s Grammy Awards, and as it often happens, things weren’t as simple as they seemed.

Here is why: for the event, Styles wore an EgonLab couture jumpsuit in collaboration with Swarovski. According to the brand’s statement on their Instagram: “The Crystal Couture piece was inspired by Pablo Picasso‘s Arlequin and Freddie Mercury‘s iconic jumpsuits. A perfect match to reinterpret Harry‘s aura.”

Per the same statement, the couture creation “featured 250,000 Swarovski crystals in 9 different colors and was entirely hand-made in Paris, requiring over 150 hours of precise work.”

Upon further research, EgonLab explained in an interview for Numéro Netherlands why Styles chose such a colorful dressing option: “The powerful color combination is a visual metaphor for his personality, his commitment to self-expression and total acceptance. We worked with Swarovski crystals as they seem to come alive as the light dances across their surface in a hypnotic show. It is like a window to another world, a world of pure magic and wonder.”

Harry’s jumpsuit seemed to be a nod to a famous outfit Freddie Mercury wore in 1977. The costume was auctioned at Bonhams Entertainment Memorabilia in July 2012 and sold for £22,500, well above the pre-sale estimate.

EgonLab instead, was founded in 2019 by Florentin Glémarec and Kévin Nompeix–they operate out of Paris and their fashion is labeled as genderless.

In an interview for GQ UK, Nompeix sang Harry‘s stylist (Harry Lambert) praises, knowing pretty well that the singer, by collaborating with Lambert, put several upcoming designers on the map even just by slight association.

Harry Styles is a trailblazer in the contemporary world and a true icon of genderless fashion. His association with our brand represented a significant turning point and reinforces our commitment to breaking down traditional notions of masculinity. This collaboration will serve as a catalyst for important discussions about a rapidly evolving society and solidify our brand’s position as a benchmark in pop culture.”

As always he accessorized his look with a Gucci phallic Banana necklace on top of his cross one, a dainty gold and pearl necklace and his usual Gucci rings; you can read more about them here.

To complete the look, Harry also wore a pair of white ankle boots with round toe.

The entertainer’s makeup was courtesy of Dotti, while his cut and hairstyling was courtesy of Candice Birns. The pro opted for an effortless, messy cut, in line with the playful nature of his outfit–he has arguably the most enviable curls in Hollywood (Timothée Chalamet beware).

Of course, Harry‘s nails were deserving of attention: nail artist Sigourney Nuñez painted them with a white matte nail polish with a subtle iridescent finish. According to Styles‘ beauty brand Pleasing and Nuñez, she used a coat of ‘Perfect Pearl‘ nail polish and ‘Pearly Tops‘.

I like Harry Styles and stylist Harry Lambert together. I think Lambert is able to translate the singer’s artistic nature. They are synergic in their choices and even though said choices may not seem understandable at first, they always hide a deeper meaning, especially when it comes to important events.

In this instance, I admire the fact that Harry paid homage to a beloved gay icon, a gesture in sync with his beliefs and values.
