One Direction are riding a huge wave of highs this summer.
Not only are they set to release their first movie (the documentary This Is Us out this Friday!), their first fragrance (“Our Moment” — we got a sample and it smells delicious!) and their first full make-up line, they also just wrapped up the North American leg of their Take Me Home world tour. Let’s not forget that One Direction’s Zayn Malik proposed to his girlfriend Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards last week and naturally she said yes!
How do they plan to top all of that? By possibly performing at this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. According to the Sun in the U.K., Zayn and fellow bandmates Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Liam Payne have been tapped to perform at the high profile lingerie show, no doubt effectively becoming the envy of teenage boys everywhere (if they weren’t already).
It would be a big coup for Victoria’s Secret to snag One Direction, who have already enlisted the likes of Bruno Mars, Kanye West, Maroon 5 and Justin Bieber for past shows. The boys are already incredibly busy preparing for the Australian leg of their world tour.
The fashion show may also mean another run in with an ex for Harry Styles. He was rumoured to have been seeing Victoria’s Secret angel and current It Girl, Cara Delevingne, last fall before he hooked up with Taylor Swift. He even reportedly visited her backstage after she walked the Burberry show during London Fashion Week.
Would their possible reunion be as amicable as his post-VMA run in with Taylor Swift (they took a group picture together with mutual friend Ed Sheeran)? We hope so — Cara is fashion’s definition of cool and we couldn’t picture her being anything but.
UPDATE: Victoria’s Secret has released a statement shotting down the rumour: “The recent reports regarding One Direction appearing in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show are untrue. The band is not performing in this year’s show. We will announce our artists in early October.”
They obviously don’t know what they’re missing because IT WOULD’VE BEEN AMAZING!
