Armani First-Timer Liam Payne Talks Fashion, Father’s Day, and His Upcoming Collab with Zedd

As the crowds around the Armani Hotel this morning hinted, Liam Payne is in Milan. The gone-solo ex-One Direction-er flew in from Buffalo to attend Giorgio Armani’s show, and he seemed seriously into it.

It was explained to me that this is something that Mr. Armani likes to do in his shows, to show in twos sometimes, as well as one by one. And I think it’s cool. Plus they all had great hair.
