Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Niall Horan have had plenty of topless momentsÂ—from off-hours parties to backstage concert anticsÂ—much to Directioners' glee. And the One Direction boys can pull it off with their slim and trim physiques (not to mention Styles' artsy collection of chest tattoos). Or can they? Tomlinson, for one, recently stepped out in London, and he's really packed on the pounds!
It was a good thing L.T. kept his shirt on during his little stroll around Camden on Wednesday, Sept. 26. But his more robust appearance was only the result of a rather comical fat suit, not late-night munching or beer belly woes.
The 1D group strikes again with their little pranks and practical jokes! Hopefully no one took offense to this hefty little stunt, though. It was obviously all in good fun, as Tomlinson gave out jolly free hugs to passersby, as he and the guys filmed a video promo for their upcoming world tour.
As for how Mr. Louis Tomlinson looks as a larger character, well, his cool pop-star reputation allows him to pull off the cheesy fat suit and still keep his phat edge. But, that said, his costume is actually a pretty bad one. Capital FM has a photo of Tomlinson, and it looks more like he stuffed a giant beach ball under his gray shirt than anything else. He should save the suit for HalloweenÂ—he could be a giant Oompa Loompa. He just needs the orange glow and the overalls and he'd be all set.
Tomlinson isn't the only one among One Direction who's switched up his appearance lately. Liam Payne just shaved his head after his breakup with Danielle Peazer (no more Justin Bieber floppy-hair comparisons for him!), and Styles went for an even more permanent change: some new ink.
