to his bandmates and they agreed to keep it.[18] For their qualifying song at "judges' houses", and their first song as a group, One Direction

Regarding Styles' time in One Direction, AllMusic writer Tim Sendra opined his "charming persona and elastic vocals had him positioned as the Timberlake of the group."[94] Styles seemed "a dimpled, rakish prankster happy to wear the mantle of Class Clown... maybe because he knew that Most Likely to Succeed belonged to him too," as noted by Entertainment Weekly's Leah Greenblatt.[95] During public appearances, Styles' fashion evolution has traded "teen-friendly" Jack Wills tracksuits for a selection of Saint Laurent, Gucci
Gucci
and Burberry.[96] As his time in the band progressed, the singer started wearing skinny-jean-and-boots.[96] For Billboard's Chris Payne, "From his influences to his fashion to his onstage persona to his (formerly) flowing locks, Styles' vibe has always screamed rock star."[97] The same publication noted over the course of five-year stint with his group, Styles' taste in fashion "has blossomed from a teen wearing purple Jack Wills
Jack Wills
hoodies to a carefully executed blend of 70s rock with a glamorous magpie feel."[98] In September 2016 Styles was featured in three separate editorial shoots, and was interviewed by Paul McCartney

and Chelsea Handler
Chelsea Handler
for Another Man magazine,[99] prompting an editor from The Guardian
The Guardian
to label the lack of shirtlessness and the focus on fashion for a niche publication as the death of a "heartthob" and birth of an "artthrob".[100] Promoting his solo projects during 2017, Styles opted for "candyfloss" pink suits, printed satin flares, gradually heightening heels, a style described as "flamboyant look."[96] Regarding his favouritism for pink, he quoted The Clash's Paul Simonon

in an interview: "Pink is the only true rock & roll colour."[4] Philanthropy

The Lalela Project "helps children who are victims of 'extreme poverty, armed conflict, displacement and deadly diseases like malaria, TB and Aids', and gives them a chance to be creative through art."[103] As a member on One Direction, Styles has also supported Comic Relief,[104] and a new initiative titled Action 1D "to help better the future."[105] In 2016, Styles shared a photo of his chopped-off braid on social media, donating his hair to the UK charity Little Princess Trust, which supplies and funds high quality wigs made of real hair to children who have hair loss as a result of cancer treatment or other illnesses.[106] In May 2017, after the release of his debut album, Styles played an intimate show at The Garage venue in Highbury, London, with all proceeds from the show going to the Little Princess Trust

Taylor Swift
in late 2012.[4] During an interview in 2017, The Sun asked Styles if he has ever personally labelled his sexuality, to which he responded "No, I’ve never felt the need to really. I don’t feel like it’s something I've ever felt like I have to explain about myself."[113] In an interview with The Sunday Times, Styles was asked which candidate he would support in the 2017 British general election, with him answering, "I’m probably going to vote for whoever is against Brexit."[114] In 2018, Styles, among other artists, signed a petition demanding stricter gun control in wake of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting and expressed his support to March for Our Lives.[115] Discography Main article: Harry Styles
