Celebrities have rushed to the defence of Harry Styles after he was criticsed for wearing a dress on the cover of the December issue of Vogue saying, "bring back manly men".

Conservative commentator Candace Owens replied to a tweet from Vogue's Twitter account which included pictures from Harry's photoshoot, including one where he is wearing a Gucci dress. Candace called the pictures an "outright attack".

"There is no society that can survive without strong men," she said in response to the post. "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."

The tweet from the Vogue account also included a quote from Harry's interview, where he says: "There's so much joy to be had in playing with clothes. I've never thought too much about what it means - it just becomes this extended part of creating something."

Candice followed up her tweet, claiming that "terms like 'toxic masculinity' were created by toxic females."

She added: "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."

Celebrities including Jameela Jamil, Olivia Wilde and Zach Braff have since publicly called out Candace for her comments.

Jameela tweeted: "Harry Styles is plenty manly, because manly is whatever you want it to be, not what some insecure, toxic, woman-hating, homophobic d---heads decided it was hundreds of years ago. He's 104% perfect."

Olivia Wilde replied to Candace's tweet, simply saying: "You're pathetic."

Zach Braff shared the picture of Harry wearing the dress and said: "our whole lives boys and men are told we need to be manly. Life is short. Be whatever the f-ck you want to be."

Fans have also come to Harry's defence. One fan shared another picture from the Vogue photoshoot in which Harry wears a dress. They said: "Candace Owens really thinks that The harry styles needs her opinion. He can wear whatever he wants pants skirts dresses shorts it's none of your business. It's really sad that is the 21st century people are still close minded like that. He is on VOGUE honey deal with it."


A third person said: "I don't understand why Candace here is so upset about Harry Styles or men in general wearing dresses. Clothing & makeup have no gender. You can wear whatever you want on your body. What you are really trying to say here is you are a closed minded karen who needs to shut up."

Harry made history by becoming the first man to appear solo on the magazine.
