Niall Horan has been spotted out and about with a mystery lady and suddenly it’s 2010 again. We need to know who One Direction are dating.
The 1D member turned solo artist headed out on Melrose Avenue to enjoy his day off yesterday, and was joined by a female pal for a spot of designer shopping in between his tour dates.
But, before you let your inner-17-year-old-self start panicking at the thought of Niall potentially being off the market, fans soon identified the woman as Niall’s long-time stylist and close friend, Ellie Stidolph. Phew.
Niall’s clearly taking the whole solo artist image thing pretty seriously, as he and Ellie arrived together in West Hollywood with matching Ralph Lauren shopping bags to kit him out with a new wardrobe.
He was already looking pretty suave and effortlessly stylish in a pair of skinny black jeans, a casual tee, simple sunnies and a statement fedora hat.
Alright, so it’s not exactly a Harry Styles-level, floral suit style statement, but it still looks cool.
While the Niall fandom breathes a collective sigh of relief that hasn’t been heard since that time he was rumoured to be dating Selena Gomez, Niall himself has admitted that he hates people speculating about his romantic private life. Oops.
Speaking to Short List about the balance of expression and privacy, the Slow Hands singer ranted: ‘Never ask an artist who a certain song is about.
‘I get it all the time, and what they’re really wanting to know is who you’re shagging at any given time.
