Billy Porter apologizes to Harry Styles for Vogue cover remark

Billy Porter says he is sorry for criticizing Harry Styles over his historic Vogue cover.

“Harry Styles, I apologize to you for having your name in my mouth. It’s not about you. The conversation is not about you,” Porter said on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” Thursday.

Styles made history last year as the first man to appear solo on the cover of Vogue. He wore a lacy Gucci dress in the photo, which was met with both praise and criticism.

Porter, who is known for his showstopping red carpet looks that often blend traditionally masculine and feminine influences, did not have any issue with Styles wearing a dress in general.

However, he questioned Vogue’s decision to feature the “Watermelon Sugar” singer on the groundbreaking cover.

“I feel like the fashion industry has accepted me because they have to,” Porter said in an interview with The Sunday Times

The Lakers’ NBA-Record 33-Game Winning Streak Started 50 Years Ago

In the summer of 1971—the offseason before they would make history with the longest winning streak by a team in one of the four major men’s sports, a mark that remains unsurpassed 50 years later—the Lakers had a lot going on.

First there was the issue of who was in charge. Six weeks after losing to the Bucks 4–1 in the Western Conference finals, Los Angeles canned coach Joe Mullaney. “I am shocked,” said point guard Jerry West, who was, at the time, ranked fourth on the NBA’s all-time scoring list—and third among the Lakers. The two ahead of him, Wilt Chamberlain and Elgin Baylor, were nearing the end of their careers and struggling with injuries. The 37-year-old Baylor had played only two games in 1970–71, and Chamberlain, 35, had missed almost all of the previous season. West was 33 and had been largely healthy—until a knee injury sidelined him

“I prayed for beauty; I didn’t pray to be smart,” Emily Ratajkowski confessed in conversation with the author of Three Women, Lisa Taddeo, at the launch of her first book titled My Body. Last night, on the top floor of Tory Burch’s new Soho boutique, Ratajkowski unpacked her journey from a young girl to a young mother in front of an intimate crowd of friends and fans.

Guests, including Karlie Kloss, Ziwe, Jessica Joffe, Tommy Dorfman, Moses Sumney, Hannah Bronfman, Chanel Miller, Glamour’s Samantha Barry, Raven Leilani, Kristine Froseth, and Selby Drummond, all dropped by to celebrate the monumental moment for the model turned author.

A little over a year later, Ratajowksi will officially reveal a compiled series of raw
