‘Bring back the manly man’: Candace Owens trashes Harry Styles’ ball gown Vogue cover
Candace Owens voiced her disgust over 26-year-old “Cherry” singer Harry Styles’ new American Vogue cover where he blurs the lines between male and female roles. He’s featured in a ball gown and a custom Gucci Jacket on the cover. While the left was thrilled with the layout and praised Styles endlessly, Owens was not so enamored of the spectacle and was unapologetic for her views. She claims he’s dragging the patriarchy down.
“There is no society that can survive without strong men,” Owens, 31, posted on Twitter in response to the photos of Styles, who just became Vogue’s first solo male cover star. “The East knows this. In the west, the steady feminization of our men at the same time that Marxism is being taught to our children is not a coincidence. It is an outright attack. Bring back manly men.”
Owens’ tweet currently has over 80,000 likes and has gone viral. But not everyone was thrilled with her sentiments and she received intense backlash over them.
Actress and filmmaker Olivia Wilde tweeted in response, “You’re pathetic.” Wilde is starring alongside Styles in the upcoming movie Don’t Worry Darling, which she is also directing.
Candace also did a video online calling Hollywood ‘Satanic’ for pushing things like this and that no one should follow their lead. She says the spread in Vogue by Styles in the flouncy dress is the one thing America really didn’t need right now. She went on to say that virtually everything that comes out of Hollywood is about destroying values and weakening our society.

Owens followed up her original tweet doubling down with one clarifying it, “Since I’m trending I’d like to clarify what I meant when I said ‘bring back manly men’. I meant: Bring back manly men. Terms like ‘toxic masculinity’, were created by toxic females. Real women don’t do fake feminism. Sorry I’m not sorry.”
That tweet has over 54,000 likes and has gone viral as well.

The media and liberals immediately labeled Owens as behind on ‘culture and education’.
In his interview with Vogue, Style admits his love for traditionally female clothing. “I’ll go in shops sometimes, and I just find myself looking at the women’s clothes thinking they’re amazing,” he told the magazine, further declaring that “you can never be overdressed. There’s no such thing.”
Style’s heroes include David Bowie, Prince, Elvis, Freddie Mercury, and Elton John. He not only likes their music but their eccentricity in dressing.
He loved flamboyant outfits as a child and as an adult, he’s comfortable in even more extreme attire. “Now I’ll put on something that feels really flamboyant, and I don’t feel crazy wearing it. I think if you get something that you feel amazing in, it’s like a superhero outfit,” he said. “Clothes are there to have fun with and experiment with and play with. What’s really exciting is that all of these lines are just kind of crumbling away. When you take away ‘There’s clothes for men and there’s clothes for women,’ once you remove any barriers, obviously you open up the arena in which you can play.”
