Dashing Niall Horan looks slick in checked three-piece suit at the AMAs in LA... as he avoids 'former flame' Selena Gomez on red carpet a year on from THOSE dating rumours

His fellow bandmate Liam Payne recently confirmed that One Direction will be reuniting following their lengthy hiatus.

And Niall Horan still looked every inch the boyband star as he made a dapper appearance in a three-piece Paul Smith suit at the American Music Awards in LA on Sunday - where he was feted with the New Artist Of The Year Award.

The 24-year-old narrowly avoided 'former flame' Selena Gomez, who debuted a blonde sassy hairdo, as they attended the same event nearly a year after they were first hit with dating rumours - which they both quashed later on.

Niall teamed his suave attire with classic leather footwear as he rocked a swept over hairdo which showed off a darker colour than fans are used to.

Meanwhile Selena, who unveiled lighter locks at the Sunday awards show, flaunted her legs in an edgy black and silver leather dress.
