A sequinned jumpsuit for £3,000? It’s just Harry’s latest glitzy look as he headlines California music festival
Harry Styles has a flair for the flamboyant and is never afraid to rock a feminine look.
The singer combined both this weekend when he took to the stage as a headline performer at a California music festival wearing a spangly multi-coloured jumpsuit.
Cheered on by his close friend James Corden at the Coachella extravaganza in Palm Springs, 28-year-old Styles duetted with country music star Shania Twain on a spirited rendition of her hit Man! I Feel Like A Woman!

Even though Styles has a well-earned reputation for favouring outlandish fashion, his plunging rainbow-coloured jumpsuit – which matched the Canadian singer-songwriter’s sequin-adorned dress – triggered all the chatter in fashion circles.
The glitzy outfit was custom-made for him by Spanish designer Arturo Obegero, a commission thought to have cost the pop star about £3,000.
But Styles wasn’t the only one making a bold fashion statement on Friday night. On this side of the Atlantic, comedian Peter Kay marked his return to the stage after 11 years by wearing an outlandish record-print patterned bomber jacket.
The Mancunian star, who stepped away from the limelight in 2017 citing ‘unforeseen family circumstances’, performed his comeback show in a 1980s-inspired ensemble of multi-coloured headband and gold jogging bottoms to match his jacket as he gleefully addressed the crowd.
Kay, 48, opened his Dance For Life show at Manchester Central Convention Complex, marking his first tour since The Tour That Doesn’t Tour Tour… Now On Tour, which ended in late 2011.
Obegero, who studied at Central Saint Martins in London, was asked to produce several outfits for Styles earlier this year. The singer wore one in the video for As It Was, the lead single from his new album Harry’s House.
The Cheshire-born star was dressed by Harry Lambert, an up-and-coming stylist who has been working with Everton footballer Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
The striker recently hit the headlines for his own outrageous take on fashion, which includes him carrying three Chanel handbags when out and about.
Lambert worked with the England hopeful on a cover shoot for the fashion magazine Arena Homme + last November. He also styles Golden Globe winner Emma Corrin and actor Josh O’Connor, who co-starred in The Crown as Princess Diana and Prince Charles.

It was the stylist who selected Miss Corrin’s much discussed tan mesh slip dress for last week’s Olivier Awards. The frock, from Jonathan Anderson’s collection for Loewe, featured a pair of deflated balloons as a breastplate.
Styles’s latest stage outfit will be strikingly familiar to anyone who followed his idol David Bowie during his Ziggy Stardust phase. The rock legend became well known for sequined jumpsuits in the early 1970s.
The standout star of One Direction – the band discovered on The X Factor in 2010 – revealed last year he has grown fond of wearing women’s clothes.
He told Vogue magazine: ‘I’ll go in shops sometimes and I just find myself looking at the women’s clothes thinking they’re amazing. It’s like anything – any time you’re putting barriers up in your own life, you’re just limiting yourself.’
