It was lions and tigers and bears for One Direction’s Harry Styles and Taylor Swift, who hung out together Sunday afternoon, visiting New York City’s Central Park Zoo for a stroll and a meet-up with friends.
Although observers say the two weren’t overly affectionate, Swift, 22, was dolled up in winter casual for the outing and reportedly was acting flirty.
Following Swift’s split with Conor Kennedy, 18, after a summer romance, she has been seen spending some time with Styles, also 18.
He was with her when she made a November appearance on The X Factor, where they reportedly held hands and he carried her off stage over his shoulder.
