Harry Styles ‘takes inspiration from Sir Mick Jagger for dazzling red jumpsuit music video’

Harry Styles reportedly took inspiration from Rolling Stones frontman Sir Mick Jagger for the sparkling red jumpsuit he wore in the music video for his new single As It Was.

The former One Direction star, 28, spent hours with fashion designer Arturo Obegero as the pair browsed through rocker Sir Mick’s past outfits in a bid to get Harry’s style perfect, according to the Mirror.

Former X Factor contestant Harry previously described Sir Mick, 78, as ‘the coolest man on the planet’ before deciding to emulate him in a promo for his song.

MailOnline has reached out to representatives of Harry and Arturo for comment.

Harry has been praised by fans and members of the fashion set for his androgynous style.

The star insists that she is not bothered by society’s gender norms and is comfortable wearing whatever clothes make her happy rather than what is considered appropriate for a man.
