Remember that time it was revealed that Taylor Swift sometimes leaves her apartment carried by bodyguards inside a giant black suitcase? When it comes to celebrities being a little bit extra about their security, Harry Styles has a message for his ex: Hold my beer.
The former One Direction member’s designer, Harris Reed, claimed in a new interview with GQ that Styles’ wardrobe is kept under permanent lock and key, guarded by 24-hour security. But should a member of the Bling Ring sneak into his house searching for his instantly iconic Met Gala look, they would be sorely disappointed: It’s being stored, along with the rest of his clothes, in an undisclosed location.
“I can't say where it is located, but everything goes to an archive,” Reed told the men’s magazine, adding that it’s “somewhere in London.”
If that weren’t enough like a Bond villain for you (eat your heart out, Rami Malek), Reed also alleged that his wardrobe is being kept in a “giant refrigerator” which he compares to a “frozen vault.”
“[T]hey have all been cryogenically frozen in time to preserve them,” they said.
But when Reed isn’t helping Styles house his pantaloons in suspended animation like Ted Williams’ head, the two have taken a genderfluid approach to the “Sign of the Times” singer’s fashion. Earlier this month, Reed told Paper magazine that their goal as a designer is to “push the status quo of what it means to be queer, what it means to be an individual, and even further than that.”
“I think clothing for me was the best way to play with that representation in a way that hopefully changes people's perspectives and challenges what people's beliefs are,” they said.
While Styles has never come out as queer or nonbinary, the star has increasingly blurred the lines of gender and sexuality in their music — singing about “boys and girls” on the bisexual anthem “Medicine” and getting caressed by a gender-diverse crowd in the recent music video for “Lights Up.” Earlier this year Styles also became the face of Gucci’s first genderfluid fragrance, Mémoire d'une Odeur.
We stan a gender-bending king — especially one that might have a Vanilla Sky fetish.
