Harry Styles & His Rumored Victoria's Secret Exes Reunited At His Fashion Show Performance, Which... Awkward

There are a lot of reasons to look forward to the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, but one big reason is the fact that it will feature a performance from your favorite former boy bander. Oh, yes, Harry Styles will perform at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Shanghai, which airs on Tuesday, Nov. 28, but that's not the only reason fans will be watching. According to the Daily Mail, Styles will perform alongside three rumored exes — rumored because it's hardly confirmed that Styles was ever romantically involved with any of them — and that's got all the potential for drama that people like to see in a show.

The exes in question are models Georgia Fowler, Sara Sampaio, and Nadine Leopold. Fowler was rumored to have dated Styles in 2015, and the New Zealand-born model even had to deny in November 2017 that Styles had written his hit song "Kiwi" about her. Sampio was linked to Styles after photos emerged in 2015 of the two hugging after a party at the Ludlow Hotel in New York. And Leopold and Styles were reported to be dating by multiple sources in US Weekly in 2015, though the two had reportedly broken up only a few months later. Given all of the speculation, it's no surprise that many fans leaped on this as a point of interest when the news that Styles would be performing at the fashion show broke out.

On the one hand, the attention could be coming from a place of harmless ribbing. Styles has been connected to not three but, according to the Daily Mail, six Victoria's Secret models over the years, whether or not he confirmed that he was ever romantically involved with them. In fact, the singer is currently linked to another: Camille Rowe. Though Rowe's name did not come up, the singer did mention a recent relationship that inspired many songs on his album to Rolling Stone in April 2017, saying, "She's a huge part of the album. Sometimes you want to tip the hat, and sometimes you just want to give them the whole cap...  and hope they know it's just for them."

While the magazine didn't confirm whether Styles meant a past or recent relationship with that quote, let alone if he was talking about the model at all, MTV U.K. has reported that Styles may use the show, in part, to go public with his rumored relationship with Rowe. However, the likelihood of that seems slim considering how circumspect the singer has been about his relationships, especially in the wake of his solo career.

However, other fans are already over this attention to Styles' love life as opposed to the fact that we are getting another performance from him. The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show stage is huge for a performer, and this is a big step in his solo career. Fans would rather we focused on that rather than how many of his possible exes will be walking the stage. And they aren't wrong. Styles is known as much for his fashion as he is for his music, so getting to combine both into one event has got to be quite a Moment with a capital M.

Regardless of whether you're tuning in to the Fashion Show to see Styles perform or to see if he does something awkward around his rumored flings, the internet seems to be agreed on the fact that he's not going to deliver a boring show. The photos that have already debuted from the taping have fans losing their minds — even if some of them wish he'd worn one of his more flashy suits for the occasion.

Styles can't help but kick up conversation wherever he goes, whether he intends to or not and that's certainly not a bad thing.
