A week ago I had the most incredible evening. And it was all because of the individuals you see here. All of these wonderful, incredible and beautiful people seen here made a magical night all the more magical. And I am so glad I’ve crossed paths with all of them, and for everyone that I met that night. Because of them, they turned one of the hardest years of my life into something so hopeful and positive. And I am grateful to all of them. So thank you. I love all of you ❤️
Since striking out solo from One Direction, Niall Horan’s personal music and style has developed greatly – something he proved Sunday night at the 2017 American Music Awards. Aside from winning the new artist of the year honor, Horan stepped up his fashion game in multiple stylish looks. To give a better understanding of how the singer-songwriter’s sense of style has progressed over the years and the direction it’s going in the future, Billboard got the inside scoop speaking with the star’s stylist, Ellie Stidolph.
“I think Niall’s style has evolved naturally as he got older,” she said. “He likes classics with a twist and is interested in how well things are made. It’s been fun working on bespoke pieces with some of our favorite British brands like Percival, Folk and Oliver Spencer. Music and fashion go hand in hand and Niall’s style reflects the authentic, personal nature of his music.”
From the casual white T-shirts and sneakers he used to wear with his former bandmates, it’s clear his style has become more sophisticated. “Since 2015, it’s become our tradition to do a suit for the red carpet,” Stidolph revealed of Horan’s AMAs outfits. “I think it’s a great opportunity to showcase how great Niall looks in slick tailoring. He actually often says he would wear a suit everyday if he could.”
However, as we saw in the black henley he wore for his performance of “Slow Hands” during the show, Horan is also after comfort when it comes to his attire, especially on the road. “He’s pretty low-key for tour,” continued Stidolph. “We had fun shopping for vintage T-shirts together in L.A. and I’m forever scouring eBay for them. I’ve bought a lot of Eagles tees at 2 a.m. and then forgot about them until they’re delivered. A great T-shirt, pair of jeans, along with R M Williams boots and Niall’s a happy man onstage.”
No matter how much his wardrobe changes as time goes by, there’s one thing the singer will never get tired of: accessories. Though Horan typically just wears hats when he performs, Stidolph confirmed his eye for accessories is only growing. “Niall enjoys building on his look,” she mentioned. “My approach for accessories, in general, is to let him build. I bring unique options to shoots all the time. You see, I love collecting articles of clothing on my travels and Niall is the same.”
A lot of people have been commenting on my positivity on and off Tumblr and I am so appreciative because I really have been working on being positive this year. I have always been a pessimist and I noticed that it was not only effecting the people that surrounded me but my life. Once I started speaking things into existence and believing on what I spoke, my life turned a whole 360. I had to learn that what’s for me is FOR ME and nothing and no one could change that. Once I started changing my mindset and who I surrounded myself with, I realized no matter how hard life gets, it’s always temporary and I will get through this hurdle. At the end of the day, God gives his toughest battles to his strongest soldiers.
Have a rude Hobi, have 10 of them to get through your interview and your exam and your competition 👀 (I got these after being bias wrecked by JK and trying to balance myself out again- treat them well)

I think I might’ve just held my precious Pumpkin for the last time tonight.
I did everything I could, I promise I did, baby… I hand fed him, gave him water by hand, made sure he was warm and loved, but your breeders were careless and you just got skinnier and weaker. You stopped eating last week. I tried and tried but I could hardly get a drop of water in your mouth. Today, when I went to feed you, you couldn’t stand or keep your eyes open, and as I held you, seeing the spot on you tummy get darker… (your kidney is failing because you can’t eat…) and trying to keep your tiny little body warm, I had to try and come to terms with the fact you aren’t going to make it. I’m so, so sorry baby, I’m sorry you had to suffer, I’m sorry I couldn’t save you.
(Left is him before vs. now… nothing should get so frail…)
