The former One Direction boys (who insisted they’re just on a “hiatus” but come on, do we really still believe that?) have been fairly quiet of late. We recently saw Harry Styles resurface to get his testicles demolished by former first lady Michelle Obama in a spirited game of dodgeball, and now we’re being treated to Irish snack Niall Horan looking all suave on the cover of a high-fashion magazine.
Gracing the cover of Harpers Bazaar Vietnam for… er, reasons (?!), Niall graces the glossy mag looking very fetching in a mauve turtleneck and khaki slacks with glamorous model Madison Kirkbride placed neatly between his legs.
According to the mag’s Insta post, it’s one of 8 covers to celebrate the title’s 8th birthday, with other covers featuring the likes of Bebe Rexha, Charlie Puth and Olivia Culpo.

While it’s not a competition, the comments on this particular cover are that it’s the best, which to be honest are coming from endlessly loyal One Direction fangirls and boys who just love anything that the band does.
Over on Twitter, people are excited.
