This week, One Direction singer Harry Styles was linked with another ‘cougar’… married DJ Lucy Horobin. The pair are said to have had a fling after she interviewed him for her radio show last year. Here, writer Clare Thorp asks, why are so many older women falling for him?
Another week, and it seems there’s another notch on Harry Styles’ increasingly unstable looking bedpost. And yet again, it’s an older woman that has caught the One Direction star’s eye. The latest lady he’s revealed to have had a dalliance with is married radio presenter Lucy Horobin who, at 32, is 14 years his senior.
It’s not his first ‘cougar’ relationship. He dated Caroline Flack last year… and has admirers including Rihanna and Cheryl Cole. Both of whom are far from being teenagers (sorry ladies!)
So, just what has, er, 18-year-old Harry got that gets women – young and old – all in a tither? Maybe it’s his chat up technique? He apparently wooed Lucy Horobin by serenading (well, miming) their hit ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ and putting his one hand on his heart. OK, perhaps it’s not that.
It could be that lovely mop of hair (coiffed with Bumble and Bumble products apparently). Or maybe it’s just because he’s cute, a bit naughty, would probably make you laugh a lot (ok, LOL, or ROFL). He also seems a gent, asking his fans to lay off Caroline Flack when she was bombarded with hate tweets. Oh yeah, and he’s in the biggest band in the world right now. (Can you tell we’ve got a bit of crush on him here at Grazia?)
So Harry, if you’re reading this… call us yeah?
