Harry Styles wanted to look “British and eccentric” for his Grammy Awards debut on Sunday.
The singer, who won Best Pop Solo Performance for Watermelon Sugar at the ceremony, dressed to impress with two standout looks designed by Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele. Styles donned a green and yellow check tweed jacket with a lavender boa for the red carpet, before changing into a black leather cropped jacket with matching trousers plus a mint boa to perform his award-winning song.
“This is Harry’s first Grammys, and so we wanted to do something that felt British and eccentric,” his stylist Harry Lambert told Vogue.com. “A little bit rock ‘n’ roll and a little bit camp. I hope we did this with the mix of the tweed and the boa, (which is) Britishness, rock’n’roll, and camp all rolled into one.
“It was also important to us all that the silhouette for the stage was the same as the red carpet but that the actual looks felt polar opposites. One being patterned and vibrant and the other being more slick and sexy.”
Lambert added that he and Styles strive to do something “unexpected” whenever they collaborate and were keen to create a “darker, sexier” look when Styles performed his upbeat summery hit Watermelon Sugar.
“I don’t feel that anyone has seen Harry dress like this before, so the Grammys felt the perfect moment to do this,” Lambert explained. “Also, you can see it in his performance. He really enjoyed wearing this look, and I think you can really tell; I think it’s shown a different side to him.”
Michele told Vogue.com he finds it “easy” to dress the former One Direction star because it’s always a “fun” experience.
