Mick Fleetwood announced as the new face of Harry Styles’ beauty brand

Fleetwood Mac co-founder Mick Fleetwood has been announced as the new star of Harry Styles’ Pleasing beauty brand campaign.

The 74-year-old drummer can be seen adorning a purple zebra-print suit and top hat as he models the brand’s new colorful nail polishes as part of his psychedelic-themed Shroom Bloom collection.

Styles, 28, launched the brand in November, which offers unisex nail polish, skincare products and designer clothing.

Speaking to Vogue magazine, Styles described his brand’s new face as a “magical man” and musical hero.

The singer said: “Mick is someone who brings me – and countless others – great joy. I felt there couldn’t be a better embodiment of Pleasing, or someone who could so naturally capturing the magic we love.

Styles is known for his androgynous style that subverts gender stereotypes, and in 2020 he became the first man to appear solo on the cover of the Vogue fashion bible wearing a pale blue lace Gucci ball gown and a black tuxedo jacket.

Fleetwood also recalled to Vogue how the pair were first introduced at a One Direction meetup, when her twin daughters asked to see the singer in concert.

He said: “We really connected because it turns out Harry was brought up around the music of Fleetwood Mac as a kid.

“And so on for years, we had this overnight relationship, which led to him doing Fleetwood Mac songs and doing countless small and big things with Stevie (Nicks).”

The rocker noted that their connection was “driven by the music”, but as a person he found Styles “incredibly kind and caring” and said he gravitated to his lack of ego despite the fame that he had. he knew.

Fleetwood added that he “loved every moment” of filming the Pleasing campaign, which was set at his home in Maui, Hawaii.

He explained that he joined the campaign because he believes it is an experience that gets people thinking “why not” and empowers individuals to speak up.

“When I think about what happened in my generation, we had a sense of freedom, a sense that what had happened before didn’t need to be repeated. Millions and millions of people in my world, our generation, have seen this, felt this,” Fleetwood added.

“But imagine the 60s right now with social media. One might be bold enough to say that a somewhat naive dream that not everyone is judgmental could spread like wildfire.

“Remembering that premise, I think there’s a tremendous amount of similarity now asking, ‘Why not? What gives you the right to shut me down?

“It’s not confrontational. It’s just, why would you want to do that to anyone or anything? In our day and age, if someone went to a concert with blue paint all over their face, you were like, “That’s cool, isn’t it? You wouldn’t say one thing or the other.

“That’s what I’ve always felt. Don’t be judgmental and have fun with it. That’s what Pleasing stands for.
