Mick Fleetwood Is the New Face of Harry Styles’ Beauty Products Range

 

Mick Fleetwood has been unveiled as the new face of Harry Styles’ beauty products range Pleasing.

Now resembling Uncle Albert from Only Fools and Horses, the Fleetwood Mac drummer may not seem the most obvious choice, but it’s his nails rather than his face that will be doing the modelling.

The 74-year-old rock legend was picked by Styles to head his psychedelic themed collection Shroom Bloom, which launches on March 15th. A promotional image shows Fleetwood decked out in a purple suit and top hat while sporting purple nail polish from the Shroom Bloom line.

Mick is someone who brings me – and countless others – great joy,” Styles said of his new model. “I felt there couldn’t be a better embodiment of Pleasing, or a person who could so naturally capture the wizardry that we love.

Styles launched his brand last November, offering nail polish, skincare products and apparel to a unisex market.

Fleetwood first met Styles when he brought his twin daughters Ruby and Tessa to a One Direction meet-and-greet.

We really connected because it turned out Harry had been brought up around Fleetwood Mac’s music when he was a child,” he said of their first encounter. “And so on and off for years we’ve had this passing-in-the-night relationship, which has included him doing Fleetwood Mac songs and doing countless little and big things with Stevie (Nicks).

Fleetwood believes the Shroom Bloom line captures the spirit of his flower power generation.

When I think about what happened in my generation, we had a sense of freedom, a sense of feeling that what had happened before didn’t need to be repeated,” he said. “Millions and millions of people in my world, our generation, saw that, felt that.

But imagine the 60s right now with social media,” he continued. “One might be so bold as to say that slightly naive pipe dream of everyone not being judgmental might spread like wildfire. Being reminded of that premise, I think there’s a huge amount of similarity now asking, ‘Why not? What gives you the right to close me down?’ It’s not confrontational. It’s just, why would you want to do that to anybody or anything? In our time, if someone went to a concert with blue paint all over their face, you go, ‘How cool is that?’ You wouldn’t say one thing or the other. That’s how I’ve always felt. Don’t be judgmental and have fun with it. That’s what Pleasing represents.
