Harry Styles is covering the latest issue of Beauty Papers in a rotation of fishnet tights, patent loafers, and blue suiting. It's a perfect look for Styles, whose nonconforming fashion choices (and penchant for Gucci) have established the musician as bona fide style icon.
Founded by Maxine Leonard and Valerie Wickes, Beauty Papers is a creative biannual about the culture of beauty. Teasing the new issue on Instagram, Styles makes a short public service announcement where he begins a stream-of-consciousness style monologue with "I am Harry Edward Styles," before listing cultural figures such as Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami and British artist Tracey Emin — perhaps hinting at the contents inside the new issue.
Of course, putting one of the world's most popular young musicians on the cover of your magazine is a surefire way to ensure your website crashes, which is exactly what has happened to BeautyPapers.com.
Once the website is up-and-running again, you can pick up a copy of Issue 8 here.
