Harry Styles’ jaw-dropping Beauty Papers magazine photo led the publication’s website to crash.
Bosses at the London-based title teased the racy black-and-white snap of a topless Harry wearing only a pair of fishnet tights and Gucci loafers on Monday (March 16, 2020), prompting fans to race online to find out more, creating a system failure.
Images for the magazine’s Issue Eight, shot by Casper Wackerhausen-Sejersen, also debuted via Instagram in a video clip on Tuesday. A second shot features Harry wearing a Gucci suit and bronze-toned makeup.
“Introducing Mr. Harry Edward Styles who collaborated with #beautypapers in an issue that viscerally responds to the shrinking freedoms of our world with an explosion of individuality, creativity, diversity and unity,” the caption alongside the video read.
Soon after the photos were unveiled, a Beauty Papers representative announced the electronic backup: “Beautiful people, our website as you know, is down due to an overwhelming response. Please hold tight … thank you.”
