Daughter creates elaborate Harry Styles concert outfit for her dad, and he completely rocks it

This dad got Harry styled.

Look out Harry Styles, there's a new fashion icon in town.

It’s one thing to surprise your daughter with back-to-back Harry Styles concert tickets. It’s quite another to dress up for the occasion. This dad did both.

According to Today, Nari Rampersad was told, “not asked,” by his daughter Sarita that they would be sporting complementary outfits for the big double-night event. He might have not had much choice, but Nari willingly went all in.

Sixteen-year-old Sarita meticulously planned every last detail of their “Love On Tour” ensemble using Google docs and spreadsheets to organize what they would need. Luckily, she had been a fan of Styles since the ripe old age of 7 (during his One Direction days), and based their looks off a Pinterest vision board created back in 2018. There was no shortage of inspo.

By the way folks, this is why you should never delete a Pinterest board. You never know when they might come in handy.


Sarita posted videos from both nights onto her TikTok channel, and each received millions of views. Harry Styles concerts are well known for being a celebration of fun, bold fashion, but the pure wholesomeness was next level. To start things off, Sarita and Nari wore coordinated pink and blue bell-bottom pants and flowy open blouses—a signature Styles style. As Sarita told Today, this was in tribute to the pop idol’s “Fine Line” album, chosen because “that's the album when I finally got my dad to start listening to Harry too.”

Leaving no aesthetic stone unturned, Nari even got his nails painted. Plus the father-daughter duo wore matching “non negotiable” white Doc Martens. And yes, feather boas were involved. Would it even be a Harry Styles concert without a boa?

“Now this is a slay if I’ve ever seen one,” someone commented.

Though Sarita was the fashion mastermind, Nari was very proud of the fact that he found two pairs of pants for himself, and in the women’s section, no less.

"It fits so much better than the men's clothing!” he told Today. “But nothing had pockets. How do you live without pockets? We had to buy a tote bag to carry my wallet and phone!"

How indeed, Nari. How indeed.

Night two swapped the baby pastels for a bolder red and royal blue combo.

Dressing up wasn’t the only way Nari went above and beyond. Sarita added that he had been studying lyrics “for months” so he wouldn’t get the words wrong. In fact, that’s why she chose her dad as her concert buddy—she knew he would “match” her energy.

"That's pretty cool, because lots of kids don't get that,” she noted.

"Seeing her happy is just pretty much all I want," he shared with Today, adding that "I knew Harry would put on a good show, but I was living through her. Her excitement pushed mine to a different level."

Harry Styles might have been the headliner, but Sarita and her dad have stolen the show, and our hearts. Now they'll have a cherished memory forever. Not to mention Nari earned some serious fashion cred.

Brendan Fraser dressed as Rick O'Connell.

Brendan Fraser might be making the greatest career comeback ever, racking up accolades and award nominations for his dramatic, transformative role in “The Whale." But the OG Fraser fans (the ones who watch “Doom Patrol” solely to hear his voice and proudly pronounce his last name as Fray-zure, for this is the proper pronunciation) have known of his remarkable talent since the 90s, when he embodied the ultimate charming, dashing—and slightly goofball—Hollywood action lead.

Let us not forget his arguably most well known and beloved 90s character—Rick O’Connell from the “Mummy” franchise. Between his quippy one-liners, Indiana Jones-like adventuring skills and fabulous hair, what’s not to like?

During a double feature of “The Mummy” and “The Mummy Returns” in London, moviegoers got the ultimate surprise when who should walk in but Brendan Fraser himself, completely decked out in Rick O’Connell attire. The brown leather jacket. The scarf. Everything.

From 1940 to 1945, an estimated 1.3 million people were deported to Auschwitz, the largest complex of Nazi concentration camps. More than four out of five of those people—at least 1.1 million people—were murdered there.

On January 27, 1945, Soviet forces liberated the final prisoners from these camps—7,000 people, most of whom were sick or dying. Those of us with a decent public education are familiar with at least a few names of Nazi extermination facilities—Auschwitz, Dachau, Bergen-Belsen—but these are merely a few of the thousands (yes, thousands) of concentration camps, sub camps, and ghettos spread across Europe where Jews and other targets of Hitler's regime were persecuted, tortured, and killed by the millions.

"You can’t just say, 'I want to be a dentist,'” judge Simon Cowell told the duo.

Back in 2014, cello-playing brothers Emil and Dariel wowed "America’s Got Talent" audiences with their cello rendition of Jimi Hendrix’s "Purple Haze," even becoming finalists for the season.

After getting invited back to participate in "America’s Got Talent: All Stars," the duo once again rocked the house with an epic cover of "Take On Me." This classic A-ha tune has been covered a lot, so the fact that these two gave it fresh new life is no easy feat.

However, judge Simon Cowell remained unimpressed.

A woman treats her miniature pig like a toddler and it even 'talks' with electronic buttons

A woman treats her pig like a toddler and the internet can't get enough.

Pigs are cute. Well, piglets are cute, but they usually don't stay those tiny little snorting things very long. That is unless you get a mini pig and name it something majestic like Merlin. (I would've gone with Hamlet McBacon, but no one asked me.)

Mina Alali, a TikTok user from California, has been going viral on the internet for her relationship with Merlin, her miniature pig. Of course, there are plenty of folks out there with pigs—mini pigs, medium pigs, pigs that weigh hundreds of pounds and live in a barn with a spider named Charlotte. But not everyone carries their pig around on adventures like it's their child.

Alali's videos of her sweet interactions with her little pig have gotten a lot of people wanting their own piggy, but training Merlin wasn't always easy. According to Yahoo Finance, the 25-year-old told SWNS that she has wanted a pig her whole life and finding Merlin was a "dream come true," but she wasn't expecting how challenging it would be to train him. If you've never been around pigs, then you may not know that they squeal—a lot—and unless you're living on an actual farm, that could be a problem.

More than seven thousand people shared their best ideas to stop mass shootings. Here are the best.

Everyone agrees mass shootings need to end. But what can really be done?

A makeshift memorial after the 2019 El Paso mass shooting.

As of January 24, 2023, at least 69 people have been killed in 39 mass shootings across the United States . The deadliest shooting happened on January 21 in Monterey Park, California, when a 72-year-old man shot 20 people, killing 11. On January 23, a 66-year-old man killed 7 people and injured another in a shooting in Half Moon Bay, California.

It’s hard to see these stories in the news every few weeks—or days—and not get desensitized, especially when lawmakers have made it clear that they will not do anything substantive to curb the availability of assault weapons in the U.S.

After the assault weapons ban, which had been in effect for 10 years, lapsed in 2004, the number of mass shootings tripled.

People rally behind a 12-year-old actress who was 'humiliated' with a 'Razzie' nomination

The parody awards show has now enforced an age limit rule to its nominations.

Ryan Kiera Armstrong in the 2022 film 'Firestarter'

Since the early 80s, the Golden Raspberry Awards, aka the "Razzies," has offered a lighthearted alternative to the Oscars, which, though prestigious, can sometimes dip into the pretentious. During the parody ceremony, trophies are awarded to the year’s worst films and performances as a way to "own your bad," so the motto goes.

However, this year people found the Razzies a little more than harmless fun when 12-year-old actress Ryan Kiera Armstrong was nominated for "Worst Actress" for her performance in the 2022 film "Firestarter." She was 11 when the movie was filmed.

Sadly, this is not the first time a child has received a Razzie nom. Armstrong joins the ranks of Jake Lloyd, who played young Anakin Skywalker in "Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace," as well as Macaulay Culkin, who was nominated three times.

Armstrong's nomination resulted in a flood of comments from both industry professionals and fans who felt the action was cruel and wanted to show their support for the young actress.
