This week, however, we took a look at another type of Styles. At the premiere of My policeStyles’ second biggest movie of the year, it’s a neo-Vegas residence of less and more… Sand dunes? It’s serious, military, futuristic, and structured at the same time — the mood resonates with Timothée Chalamet’s Housekeepers at a funeral for a fallen comrade. There have been perennial villains in the world. There was calm. And most strikingly, it’s all black.

It can be polished, moody and still fun thanks to its futuristic-thinking fit. Plus, Styles hasn’t completely abandoned his signature. A cinching belt still plays with the silhouette. There was a light kick to the trouser leg. Everyone, relax: Harry certainly didn’t turn into a wallflower.
Above all, this outfit is proof that each person’s personal style is unmatched. It moves and it grows. But whether this is a one-off or a big moment, the all-black villain suit can become the new pearl necklace.
