One Direction's Movie Premiere Style: So Chic or So 'NSYNC Circa 1999?

Posted on

Can someone please confirm that all of Hollywood hasn’t somehow gotten into the same DeLorean and traveled to the ’90s? First Rihanna seems to be one mullet away from singing “Achy Breaky Heart.” Then rumors swirl that *NSYNC may be reuniting come Sunday. Then we see this photo of One Direction at the London premiere of their concert film, looking like they took a page right out of the *NSYNC playbook with their just-coordinated-enough quintet of ensembles.

From left, we’ve got preppy Louis Tomlinson in a super-shrunken double-breasted suit and gold-heeled Oxfords; fashionisto Zayn Malik in an overcoat worn over a buttoned leather single-closure blazer; laid-back Niall Horan in the high-style equivalent of a letterman’s jacket and sneakers; perpetually wacky Harry Styles in that heart-print Burberry shirt he loves (still pining for Taylor?) and “style chameleon” Liam Payne lives up to his title in a look that’s half biker bad boy, half buttoned-up office worker.

We’d expect nothing less than lovingly tousled perfection from the group that brought us 1D cosmetics (yes, the cheek tint is called “What Makes You Beautiful”) and One Moment, a fragrance with a mile-long waiting list. And we have to say, from their carefully coiffed dos to their well-thought-out shoes, the boys don’t disappoint in the grooming department. But is their black-and-white color coordination adorable, or is it just a little too Timberlake & Co. circa JT’s curly-Q days?
