Wearing Maison Margiela, the actor covers Man About Town’s SS21 issue. Our gallery has been updated with the photoshoot.
The actor, style muse and Ryan Murphy favourite is doing things his own way, eager to be defined by more than just his career choices.
If there is one image that springs to mind when you think of Cody Fern, it might be from the Golden Globes, back in 2019. This was in the Before Times, when red carpets were still a thing, and there was Fern, decked out in Maison Margiela. Black Tabi boots, black high-waisted trousers, and a black buttoned-up blouse, sheer from the shoulders up. It was the kind of outfit that seemed to make the whole world stop and wonder, perhaps collectively: who the fuck is that? Soon, they would all find out.
Until that point, Fern had been best known for appearing in The Assassination of Gianni Versace as David Madsen, the second victim of serial killer Andrew Cunanan. But he now found himself at the centre of a “gender-fluid fashion” moment, an overnight style icon who would soon feature on the cover of a certain gentleman’s magazine under the headline: “Hollywood’s genderfuck rebel”.
“I knew exactly what it was going to do,” he says now, of the reaction the look generated. “And the thing is, I didn’t give a shit.”
Had he changed fashion? Had he tipped the very concept of gender on its head? Even Fern is unconvinced (“did we forget about Bowie?” he asks). But what he had done is walked into the Margiela store in LA and bought the outfit himself, right off the rack, because no one had wanted to dress him for the awards. That would change very quickly.
“I had been playing the game of wearing the suit with the nice tie and trying to fit in, so there was part of me that thought fuck that,” he says of his style up until that point. “So doing that at the Golden Globes? It was actually for me. It was like shedding that skin.”
Five months later, Fern was in New York. It was May, Met Gala season, and that year’s theme was “Camp: Notes on Fashion”, based on an essay by Susan Sontag. Lady Gaga had four outfit changes; Harry Styles wore an all-black ensemble with sheer sleeves; Shawn Mendes wore, well, a suit. But Fern wanted to change expectations the way he had done at the Golden Globes, and he knew just the way to go about it…

Cody made a rare appearance this evening at the Met Gala and I have added 14 photos from it to our image gallery. We hope to find more and add them in throughout the next couple of days.

As many of you know, we closed our site due to circumstances where we were called names and talked down to over the watermarks on our photos. To be perfectly honest, we did debate not bringing the site back and closing for good but after taking the time to talk it over and reevaluate things, we decided that we were not going to let a couple of people who are clearly cyberbullies win. This is by the way the last time either of us will be discussing this matter because we want to move into the new year with positivity instead of negativity.
Captures from the season finale of American Horror Story: Apocalypse have been added to our gallery. We say goodbye to Cody as the antichrist, Michael but we’re all looking forward to what comes next for Cody and his growing career!

“And nobody does a battle royale like Ryan [Murphy] does a battle royale,” FX star tells TheWrap
(Warning: This post contains spoilers for “American Horror Story: Apocalypse” through last week’s episode)
It looks like “American Horror Story: Apocalypse” is going to end with a bang tonight — literally. But, really, what did you expect from a season all about the end of the world?
Yes, we now know Michael Langdon’s plan — which appears to be to watch the world and everything in it, including those pesky witches, go up in flames — is slowly coming to fruition, as tonight is the Season 8 finale.
TheWrap spoke with Cody Fern after Episode 808, “Sojourn,” to get as many details as we possibly could about how his on-screen alter ego — the Antichrist himself — plans to duke it out with Supreme Cordelia Goode (Sarah Paulson) and her coven on the finale of Ryan Murphy’s “Apocalypse.” And what we learned is it’s gonna be a big and messy showdown.
