It may seem a bit early to declare that a celebrity has won Halloween this year; After all, there are still three days left for the holiday, but in this case no further proof is needed. For the Casamigos Halloween party on Friday, October 26, Harry Styles dressed up as an Elton John from the 1970s, and the musical legend even gave his stamp of approval on the appearance.
For the annual holiday, which is Organized by Cindy Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber, The styles channeled the iconic smooth John, the dazzling suit of the Dodgers of L.A., which he used to perform at Dodgers Stadium in 1975. The bright appearance, which Finished styles with a dazzling baseball cap and giant pink sunglasses (completed with own rhinestones, because you can never get enough shine), was designed for the singer of "Sign of the Times" by Gucci.
John was so impressed with Styles' outfit, and his attention to detail, that he posted several photos of the former One Direction singer on his own Instagram account and spilled on the tribute. "Now that's what I call a Halloween costume," John subtitled the set of photos, which showed Styles smiling and posing for the camera, as well as crouching on the floor with his tongue out. The journalist Erica Zohar gave permission to Bustle to publish her photo of Styles of the party:
However, John's styles and connection are deeper than a Halloween costume; in 2016, John said The daily star that the young singer had approached him for advice while working on his debut solo album, Harry Styles.
"I've seen Harry several times, he's great and I'm always willing to offer advice," John said, in a conversation about mentoring the new generation of British singers, which included Styles, Ed Sheeran and James Blake.
And in April, John called Styles "darling" and "a really fabulous guy" during a conversation with Kacey Musgraves for his radio show Beats 1. Rocket time, in Apple Music. After discovering that Styles was the one who asked Musgraves to join him on the tour to support his debut album, John declared "I love him even more", after discovering that the "strange … but great" couple was "The idea of the kiwi singer.
While Styles himself has not shared much about his friendship with the musical legend, his solo music, and his style choices, have been strongly influenced by the rock stars of the 1970s, including John, David Bowie and Mick Jagger, who has been Styles. In comparison with since the beginning of his career. (In fact, it is rumored that Styles will play the leader of the Rolling Stones in an upcoming biopic, although nothing has been confirmed or announced yet).
But while Styles' Halloween costume could invite more comparisons between the style options of their superior style and John's, when it comes to choosing their day-to-day attire, the main inspiration of Styles is decidedly an icon of the 90s.
"I think both music and fashion, [my] the main influence was probably Shania Twain, "Styles told Entertainment Tonight in a November 2017 interview." Yes, I think it's amazing. "(I hope this means that fans can expect to see Styles wearing lots of leopard prints next Halloween).
Regardless of whether he is wearing an elaborate costume or simply rocking a red carpet suit, Styles has made it clear that he never fears taking risks when it comes to fashion. And since his 70s-inspired team got John's stamp of approval, it seems like it's only a matter of time before dazzled baseball hats start to become a major trend. Do not forget who shook them first!
