One Direction have just won their first MTV Video Music Award, but two years ago they were fighting to get to the final on ‘The X Factor’. Check out all the reasons we love them (and their journey so far) by clicking through the gallery!
Here at LOOK we can't think of a better reason to flick through super-cute pictures of the 1D boys. One Direction - aka Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson - captured our hearts as solo singers on The X Factor, before being put in a group by Simon Cowell.
After forming 1D, the boys went on to make the live finals and come third in the series, before rising to superstardom. While their home fans love them lots, their American fans have started following their every move too, since they teamed up with American boyband Big Time Rush for a US Tour.
Whether they're hanging out with celebrity pals like Cher Lloyd, Aiden Grimshaw, Jack Whitehall, Pixie Geldof and Nick Grimshaw, or being linked to ladies like Rebecca Ferguson and Perrie Edwards (Zayn), or Caroline Flack, Cara Delevingne, Emma Ostilly and every other woman with a pulse (Harry), or Demi Lovato (Niall), these boys are still as down to earth as ever.
In our list of reasons as to why we love them, we've got some cute baby pictures of the boys that show they were made for fame, some BAD fashion choices (not sure about those onesies), some shirtless candids (HOT), and some weird facts - which of the lads is afraid of spoons?!
Click through the gallery (updated: 1 February 2013) and see if the reason YOU love One Direction is included...
Harry Styles was spotted on the front row at London Fashion Week S/S 2013, sat right next to Dita Von Teese! We do love a stylish chap...
You'd never guess, but Niall's actually got braces - if you look closely at this pic you can see the cleverly coloured brace on his top teeth. We love his sweet smile!
