Even though I'm 18, I still occasionally buy into boy bands, but this one is particularly different and certainly good replacement for the notorious Justin Bieber. For some background history, One Direction was formed by the UK show The X Factor. All five of these boys, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson auditioned separately but later in the series were formed together so that they could make the group category. All of them hail from the UK except for the blonde, Niall, who is from Ireland.
They currently have two singles out in the UK but unfortunately not in the US yet but you can view their music video for "What Makes you Beautiful," an inevitably catchy song that I've been listening to over and over again and i can't tell you how many times I've watched the music video.
Their voices are unbelievably exceptional and of course, they are all extremely beautiful. Not only that but I find their style to be admirable, and not only to boys either. I applaud their stylist. Their style is boyish, clean, and not flashy in the slightest. I personally LOVE menswear I am thinking about wearing an outfit inspired by Louis from the "What Makes You Beautiful" music video. Also I've been noticing how Louis is always in stripes and how he manages to wear Toms with dressy clothes to pull off a dressy-casual look, which is something I admire since I'm not a fan of Toms. Zayn also always appears to be in sweaters.
From their spread in the UK magazine Tatler:

New obsession, yes? I have no problem with it.
Hope you have a good week! :)
