Stylist follows ‘bro’ Malik out of band but group say she was sacked
FIRST he devastated ONE DIRECTION fans by ditching the boys.
Then he brutally dumped LITTLE MIX fiancée PERRIE EDWARDS by text.
Now ZAYN MALIK is at the centre of another showbiz break-up.
I’ve learned 1D’s chief stylist Caroline Watson, who has been responsible for shaping the look of HARRY, LOUIS, NIALLand LIAM for half a decade, has left the band to work solely with Zayn.
claims she chose to quit after Zayn, who she once described as her
“baby bro”, walked from the band in March. But the boys insist she was
axed in April.
The British stylist has been with 1D from the off,
moving from LA to become a key part of the group’s small team after
they were formed on The X Factor in 2010.
My 1D source revealed:
“She’s told some of her close pals that she left to work with him. But
after five years, it felt like her partnership with 1D had come to a
“The decision was made by the band but the secrecy around her has led people to speculate whether Zayn ‘stole their girl’.”
Over the years Caroline and Zayn grew so close that he was made godfather to her two-year-old daughter, Brooklyn.
Caroline helped prepare Zayn for Paris Fashion Week in June and it
feels like he’s always been her muse. Speaking in March, she gushed:
“Zayn was always the cool, mysterious one who was quite street but could
be quite high-fashion.
“We’re like brother and sister. We fight about stuff, but he still listens and that’s what I love about him.”
Caroline, who has also styled BRITNEY SPEARS, CHRIS BROWNand USHER, came on board with the aim of turning 1D into “the male equivalent of the SPICE GIRLS”, whereby each member would have their own identity.
It’s largely paid off, with Harry even winning the British Style Award at the 2013 British Fashion Awards.
But there has been the odd style faux-pas as my countdown on the right shows.
Meanwhile Zayn and DJ CALVIN HARRIS had a Twitter spat last night after Zayn retweeted a message criticising Cal’s girl TAYLOR SWIFT.
After an F-word filled exchange, they agreed an uneasy truce. I’m Team Calvin. Zayn needs to calm down.
