Get ready for cuteness overload. Yesterday, Gucci released a few photos of Harry Styles posing with baby farm animals for the Gucci Men’s Cruise 2019 Tailoring campaign. The photos were taken in Villa Lante, a 16th century garden on the outskirts of Rome, and featured Styles snuggling with piglets, goats, and lambs.
Styles wore Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele’s latest sartorial designs for the photoshoot, including a plaid suit paired with a paisley robe, a floral jacket, and a gray suit paired with a purple shirt and matching purple tie. In several photos, Styles also sported a gold headband fit for a Renaissance prince. A gray lamb sat on the “Kiwi” singer’s shoulders for one shot and snuggled up in his lap for another. Styles was also photographed feeding a piglet and getting kissed on the chin by a black and white baby goat. The photos were taken by Glen Luchford, a British fashion photographer and film director.

The singer-songwriter has been one of the faces of Gucci’s new avant-garde appearance ever since Michele took the reins as creative director in 2015. Styles has appeared in Michele’s Gucci suits for fashion weeks, award shows, concerts, and television appearances. For his solo debut on Saturday Night Live back in 2017, he wore a double-breasted plaid suit from Gucci’s Spring-Summer 2017 collection. Styles has also chosen Gucci for more causal looks—he was spotted in Paris last year wearing Michele’s reimagined Gucci logo emblazoned on a black sweatshirt paired with black skinny jeans and cream snakeskin boots.
This isn’t the first time that Gucci has called Styles in to model with animals. Back in June, Styles appeared in a Gucci Men’s Tailoring campaign video. Set to the song “Michele” by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, the video showed Styles walking into a London fish and chips shop, wearing a pinstripe suit paired with a checkered jacket—and carrying a chicken. In addition to the video, which was also directed by Luchford, Styles was photographed in the shop hanging out with dogs. He just works really well with animals.
The full campaign will drop in November. Until then, you can find several photos from the shoot on Gucci’s Instagram.
