Today, on his 29th birthday, we celebrate Harry Styles. The British singer, songwriter and later actor was born on 1 February 1994 in Redditch, Worcestershire, England. Styles started his solo music career as a contestant in the talent show The X Factor UK in 2010. Subsequently, however, he was selected to join the boy band One Direction, which has become – in a very short time – one of the biggest worldwide. With his colleagues Niall, Liam, Zayn and Louis, Styles released no less than five successful albums and embarked on numerous world tours.
In 2016, Harry Styles announced he was launching his solo career, with his first single Sign of the Times. Then, in 2017, he released his first studio album Harry Styles, which immediately received positive reviews, reaching number one in many countries. His music is the perfect blend of rock, pop and the psychedelic music of the 1970s. 2019 marked the Fine Line era, with hit singles such as Adore You, Lights Up and Watermelon Sugar. Styles has received many accolades, in 2021 this latest album was awarded in the Favorite Pop/Rock Album category at the AMA (American Music Awards), then at the International Album of the Year at the Juno Awards. Last year, in 2022, the singer’s third album, Harry’s House, was released, driven by a hugely successful launch single, As It Was.
Not only music though, Styles also loves acting, in fact he appeared in Christopher Nolan’s film Dunkirk in 2017, Olivia Wilde’s Don’t Worry Darling in 2022 and Michael Grandage’s My Policeman in the same year.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY HARRY STYLES, HIS CAREER BETWEEN FASHION, MUSIC AND FILM
Styles is also an activist on important issues such as gender equality and the acceptance of diversity. Alessandro Michele, for years creative head of the Italian fashion house Gucci, is also known for his commitment to diversity and acceptance of diversity. So two not-so-different worlds met. Both of them, collaborating on campaigns and collections for Gucci, have supported and created a more inclusive and welcoming world, both through fashion and music. This collaboration peaked in 2018, when Styles became the face of the Gucci Tailoring advertising campaign.
So, between music, film and fashion, happy birthday to Harry Styles, one of the most talented artists of our time.
