‘One Direction’s Niall Horan Steps Out with Model Barbara Palvin

By: Barbara DeFranco / December 16, 2013

Niall Horan is continuing the time-honored tradition of musicians and model pairings. The One Direction band member was spotted leaving the UK X Factor wrap party last night with Victoria’s Secret model Barbara Palvin.

Barbara, who at one point was linked to Justin Bieber, is a stunning 20-year old Hungarian-born model and actress who has been described by British Vogue as a “cross between a young Brooke Shields and Natalia Vodianova.” What do you guys think? I see it.

She will make her film debut in Hercules, alongside Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and fellow model Irina ShaykThe rumored new couple have reportedly been out on a few dates, but don’t tell his mum Maura. She recently told The Independent “I don’t think Niall is ready yet for a serious girlfriend. He’s a real happy-go-lucky lad. He wants to enjoy life and isn’t ready to settle into a steady relationship as far as I know just yet.”

Speaking of happy-go-lucky lads, Niall’s band mate Harry Styles reportedly hopped on a jet to see Kendall Jenner after attending the NRJ Music Awards in Cannes this weekend, according to the Daily Mail. Harry supposedly snuck into Kendall’s London hotel at around 2 a.m. Sunday morning. This comes on the heels of the duo’s reported NYC rendezvous just one week ago. So far, neither Harry nor Kendall has commented on their blossoming friendship.
