How glam rock influenced today’s singers’ genderless style

“I have no interest in what men and women wear. Harry Styles claims he has no idea, although his family has a history of seduction. Contrary to popular assumption, his greatest strength is not his music but rather the incredibly seductive yet curiously non-sexual appearance he developed with his own stylist Harry Lambert. Young celebrities who travel extensively, such as TimothĂ©e Chalamet, Billie Eilish, and Yungblud, show us that gender identification today may be fluid and, most importantly, unrestricted by old-fashioned ideas about what men and women should and shouldn’t wear.

.In addition, we can play with our gender identity; one of the most striking ways to do this is through your clothing. Since a few years ago, Harry Styles has staged a genderfluid movement that is ultra-sophisticated, elegant, and daring, inspiring countless artists and celebrities at random, from Jack Dylan Grazer to Maneskin. Harry showed himself to be the ideal person at the ideal time by being multifaceted and straight-forward. However, his coveted attire has firmly established roots in the British music scene: in a college where glam rock is the only genre of music played, the former members of One Direction can be the king and queen of a prom to inspire the gen z.

Glam rock arrived in the UK in the 1970s with the intention of fusing two ferociously and provocative universes that were aesthetically opposed: rock, which after a decade of glossy aesthetics started to evoke wild influences, and the glamour of film divas, which was made up of feathers, dizzying heels, glitter, and make-up.

Celebrity musicians portrayed themselves to audiences as strutting rock stars decked up in scant gowns and buoys, with the leitmotif of sexual anarchy as their backdrop. David Bowie was the epitome of a furious style that gave voice to entire generations of rebels, both men and women, who have adopted it as their standard for fashion. They wore technicolor catsuits alternated with power looks, had an asymmetrical haircut, and wore Martian platform boots. While Harry Styles’ music is distant from the swagger of 1970s and 1980s rock, many of his poster bedroom looks—from maxi ties to high-waisted pants with lacquered buttons and suspenders—are partly based on the White Duke’s. On the other hand, there is no doubting that David Bowie has a before and after in the history of fashion. His bright outfits and his ambiguous demeanor served as the rock on which the fluid style of our century was created.

However, many people are unaware that Marc Bolan, a former model and the lead singer of T.Rex, was the person who initially created the groundwork for the glam-glitter vision and had an influence on his companion Ziggy Stardust during performances. Marc Bolan was the eccentric and outlandish dandy of new rock music who meticulously chose his ensembles comprised of leopard jackets, low necklines, and enormous top hats. He was inspired by Syd Barrett’s psychedelia and Tolkien’s dragons. Many musicians, including Gary Glitter, the New York Dolls, and Rock Baronet Elton John, have drawn inspiration from his gender-bending attitude and aesthetic traces, as well as his pharaonic attire and ineluctable, priceless sunglasses.Many musicians have been influenced by his gender-bending attitude and stylistic traces, including Gary Glitter, the New York Dolls, and Rock Baronet Elton John, with his pharaonic clothes and unavoidable, priceless sunglasses. The yell of Freddie Mercury, the most charismatic frontman in music history, a timeless glam icon, and a queer, nonetheless, marked the transgression’s apex. The British rock diva asserted his sexual independence through cheeky, casual clothing as her transformational styles transitioned from a white tank top and trousers to wraparound leotards and capes.From that point forward, it appeared as though the genderfluid aesthetics had reached their peak expression and had naturally receded till gradual normalcy. Every revolution, after all, has an initial element of rupture, but for it to succeed, it must be able to practically integrate itself into society.And without the subversive icons of the previous century, we would not be able to enjoy the endless dimensions of fashion, art, and music that we unconsciously draw from every day in addition to Harry Styles’ excellent sense of style. Although gender equality wasn’t won by a battle of the sequins and buoys, we nonetheless want to honor it in this way today by highlighting its accomplishments in fashion.
