Does Alessandro Michele Know?

Harry and Gucci (one of the world’s predominant Italian fashion houses) are apparently a match made in Heaven. Like many other celebs, Harry has done wonders for their marketing campaigns (arguably the most impactful celeb partnership they’ve had based on social media numbers alone) such as bringing them a more youthful consumer base, getting them millions of likes on Instagram, and making their clothes look wearable.

However, I can’t confidently say they’ve done much for him in return, apart from fattening his bank account! I don’t necessarily feel they’ve elevated his fashion game a whole lot. Evolved may be a better word, by virtue of customizing some interesting pieces for his special events, which he has showcased alongside the eccentric (often outlandish) stylings of Harris Reed.

Lol Harry got this look from Harris and was probably like: “Uh….I don’t think you understood the assignment…I’m not in the opera, mate.”
I actually despise this look so much, wow. What is he gonna wear next? A parachute?

I’ve been vocal about them pressuring Harry to become increasingly more eccentric in his dress as the years go on, which has often gotten Harry insulted publicly (I remember Harris Reed admitting Harry told him to tone it down when he wanted him to wear a cape one time) and sometimes I just feel his experimentation with these more elaborate costumes isn’t always extending from his personal taste (SOMETIMES.) But I do support his dressing how he likes (wear a parachute all you want, love) and I love that he is supporting his designer friends and making their dreams come true at the same time. He’s such a sweetheart.

Good lord. Yah, he’s not compensating for anything at all. Yikes. If I see Harry in this next I swear to God…

Imo, some of Harry’s most questionable looks have been custom Gucci. That’s not to say that he doesn’t look stunning 99% of the time, or that Gucci haven’t given him some immaculate looks, like this one from the Lights Up video:

But there are a few times they fell short of the mark and did Harry no favors in my book. Although Harry Lambert may also be a fault for this. Literally going so over the top that it takes away from his natural, effortless beauty and physical form.

I feel like this would’ve looked better if it was a bit more fitted, but what the hell do I know? I’m so broke I can’t even pay attention. I’m so broke I can’t even spell Gucchy.

However, Harry can make most things look phenomenal. I believe he elevates a lot of boring retro pieces to another level and makes them passable. Such as his Gucci Brit Awards looks!

In any case, this is not a Gucci critique post. Let’s move on. And let me be clear, I respect Harry’s fashion choices and applaud his risk-taking. I just hope he’s not being pressured by his designer friends or the public to constantly push the boundaries with his style. I hope it comes from an authentic place within himself and not because he’s trying to please others.


Harry’s love affair with Gucci began sooner than some may think. Most notably he began wearing some of the collection’s riskier looks in 2015. (I love these, btw!!) Unfortunately he got a lot of flack about the white floral suit, but he still stands by his decision to wear it, and I stand with him on that.

Right away people realized he seemed to be captivated by the style of Alessandro Michele, the mastermind and new openly gay creative director of Gucci (since January 2015, although he had reportedly been with them since 2002.)

This is where people begin to see the connection loud and clear. Then they began to espy that some of Harry’s quirky tattoos may have inspired the images in Alessandro’s early “Blind For Love” campaign. Alessandro was credited with ushering in a new era of rebirth and revolution for Gucci, transforming the sophisticated, minimalist aesthetic of the brand into one that was highly embellished (maximalist) and fit for younger generations.


Before everyone accuses Harry of sleeping with this guy (**eyeroll**) just because he is openly gay and they are close friends, let me remind you Alessandro is in a long-term relationship with his partner, Giovanni Attili.

Ok, wait, why do they look alike?

Also, Harry is not the first celeb to become Alessandro’s pet. There are many others, especially Lana Del Rey and Jared Leto.

Met Gala 2018
Oh no, not Jared Leto looking like them too! What if harry grows his beard and hair out like this? Please no, wait.
We’re doomed. This will be Harry too in 3 years. Mark my words.

Jared Leto is probably dying inside like: “You young, handsome, charismatic bitch, how dare you replace me with your flawless skin and flourishing music career!” I’m getting HEAVY Winona Ryder (Beth) vs Natalie Portman (Nina) in the Black Swan vibes 🤣🤣 bahahahaha

I digress. I apologize.

Oh Alessandro for SURE knows about Harry and Z.

He posted Harry’s picture a couple months ago with the caption “you’re so golden”.

That’s insane!! Because that’s the title of the song that both Harry and Zayn individually have and are connected with one another, and one of the two representative Zarry colors (green & gold).

Such an obvious and cheeky caption!

Hoooold up! Alessandro’s post in his stories today with Harry’s Styles t-shirt and another shirt that looks very similar to Zayns from his DTD video. And it’s the day after all the HO content?! Okay Ale we see you. 👀 Not only am I convinced he uses their sentimentality, but he reads your page as well. No way that’s a coincidence. 👀🤣 (I did see this from another ig page – I don’t care if u publish or rewrite this if you do but I had to spout off about it. It’s crazy! 🥴👏

I too am trying not to see zarry in every little thing and being guilty of delusional reaching but have to confess the 25 green and yellow top ,butterfly necklace ,his bird ring looks so zarry. I think it entirely plausible that AM would know as an older gay man maybe Harry has confided &shared things .I look at the Gucci jacket supposedly inspired by Harry’s tattoos and if Harry was explainng the meaning and history of those well that just adds up to zarry and AM having insight into that.
I wonder if both Harry and Zayn have other people send messages to ‘ conversate ‘ the better video has zayn showing that he is watched and scrutinised so finding new ways to comment… Daniaal Malik’s Instagram has a load of selfies but the comments with those selfies I swear sound like zayn comments . …Just take a look maybe AD with her forensic knowledge of dates and time lines can match those comments to things that may have been going on between H &Z..but then again I may be being delusional and reaching !

Honestly, I’m not 100 percent on board with every picture that has green n gold means Zarry but sometimes it’s kinda hard not to see the connection with so many coincidences. That last picture with the 25 just seem to scream H. So maybe he is helping H speak to Z kind of. Like when Olivia posted a picture of a tightrope 🤷🏻‍♀️ It seemed too weird, especially the timing. I can’t believe it’s as often as ppl might feel bc I mean these ppl have jobs, lives, and relationships of their own but maybe at moments when it’s needed. With Z getting into the shouting match, called the f slur, yellow Metal, Zigi in general, and IMO Bella being loud with her feelings of Z maybe H wanted to send message that he sees everything. Same with Olivia, just sending a message that he heard him. I don’t know, when I say it, it sounds crazy but nothing about Zarry isn’t crazy. Their love for each other: Crazy. Their communication thru songs: Crazy. Their undeniable magnetic attraction: Crazy! H might trust a few ppl to know Z wld see the posts But definitely not as often as it seems.

Harry might have suggested to use green and yellow with 25 on it or maybe Allesandro is aware that Harry adores those colors even if he didn’t know about Zayn.
