The show also honored Jennifer Lopez with the Icon Award, Tyler Perry with the People’s Champion Award, and Tracee Elliss Ross with the Fashion Icon Award.
Harry Styles’ Vogue Cover
Harry Styles made Vogue history last week by being the first solo man to appear on the magazine’s cover. In some of the photos, Harry is seen wearing skirts and dresses, which did not sit well with some people. Cameron Owens, a conservative commentator expressed her thoughts on Harry’s outfits on the magazine. She tweeted this about the most recent Vogue cover:
This tweet sparked a lot of attention and other celebrities came to defend Harry. Actor Elijah Wood responded to Owens’ tweet saying “i think you’ve missed the definition of what a man is. masculinity alone does not make a man.”
American actor and dancer Harry Shum Jr. also responded saying “Being comfortable in your own skin as a man is manly. However that is expressed. Props to Harry Styles for doing him. There are plenty of men who are so insecure w/ themselves already so spare me ‘the world only needs more agro/aggressive men’ crap.”
