Harry Styles, the 24-year-old singer-songwriter-actor-actor-‘80s foot-stomper-Sophie Dahl. is launching a gender-neutral makeup line with New Look. The campaign for the new range is non-gender neutral as well, and features only the faces of two women, Isabella Rossellini and Kim Peters. (This image from the campaign, which promotes the lipstick Glove That Holds, is dedicated to the many events that take place without having a male in sight.)
“Isabella’s and Kim’s beauty is so iconic – they’re both embracing their femininity, and creating something special,” Styles says of the range in a statement. “I admire Isabella’s ability to be timeless, beautiful and fearless. Kim, like her mother, is thoughtful and understands the importance of beauty for all women – and I’m excited to partner with New Look to create something that reflects my favorite aspects of both.”
The launch of the makeup line also coincides with the release of new music from Styles, the young Brit who has been quiet since his debut album dropped in 2016. His new music has been put out on a streaming service before it hits physical stores, and it sounds kind of like the beau motocross music of his pal Niall Horan.
In an interview with The Stage in July, Styles said that he was “always interested in the music that does the weirdest thing possible to get your attention. I’m constantly impressed by bands like Thurston Moore and The Smiths.” Sound familiar? Styles’ solo material is also inspired by the musicals of Shakespeare and Federico Fellini. He released the album opener “Sign of the Times” in June — right before One Direction’s members were finalizing their hiatus plans. Styles said that he was “trying to work out what I want to do next. It feels like a new chapter.”
