Harry Styles responded to a comment Candace Owens made about his effeminate attire on the cover of Vogue magazine.

Harry, an ex member of the boy band One Direction, became the first male to appear solo on the cover of Vogue. He marked the occasion by wearing a frock on the cover.

Last month, Candace retweeted a Vogue post with the comment:

"There is no society that can survive without strong men. 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 bisexual singer threw some subtle shade at the pro-Trump conservative activist on Instagram.

"Bring back manly men," he captioned a picture of himself wearing a powder blue suit and ruffled shirt while eating a banana -- which some IG followers say is meant as a phallic symbol.

Styles also addressed Owens' comments in an interview with Variety, saying:

"To not wear [something] because it's females' clothing, you shut out a whole world of great clothes. And I think what's exciting about right now is you can wear what you like. It doesn't have to be X or Y. Those lines are becoming more and more blurred."
