Talk about a journey! One Direction’s Zayn Malik and his band mates have come a long way since meeting on Britain’s The X Factor in 2010 (which new documentary, One Direction: This Is Us, out Friday, recites) but Malik maintains the group’s popularity isn’t the only thing that’s changed. “My style has definitely evolved for the positive hopefully,” he told InStyle.com at the New York premiere of the film. “I wore some horrendous things on X Factor, and hopefully I dress a bit cooler now.” Sporting a leather-sleeved jacket on the carpet, the newly-engaged singer is confident enough with his style to dole out back-to-school tips. “When we think about school now, all our memories are great memories, and we wish we could go back to school for a day,” he said candidly. “Just have fun, and make the most of it because school goes really fast.” As does time for this group — see the band’s own speedy journey on screen when One Direction: This Is Us opens in theaters Friday, August 30.

Last night, the boys of One Direction — Louis, Zayn, Niall, Liam, and Harry — celebrated the world premiere of their upcoming biopic, One Direction: This is Us at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York City. Opening August 30, the film features live concert footage and also gives fans a behind-the-scenes look into the boys’ lives and the story of how One Direction rose to fame. “You’ll see probably one of the most remarkable stories that’s happened in music in the past few years,” producer Ben Winston told InStyle.com. “These boys, who have come from nowhere, really, and yet here they are now, some of the biggest stars in the world, and they have remained absolutely normal, humble, and lovely.” While we’re sure fans are beyond excited to get an inside peek at the lives of their favorite guys from across the pond, One Direction themselves are just as excited to see fans’ reactions. “Hopefully there’s a few of them sitting in the screening, and just to see what they find funny and what they don’t find funny,” Zayn told InStyle.com of what he was looking forward to most at the premiere. The boys are also fresh off their recent MTV Video Music Awards Moonman win for Best Song of the Summer for their hit, “Best Song Ever,” thanks to eight million fan votes. They sure have a lot to celebrate! Click the photo to see more pictures from this week’s celebrity parties!

The wait is over! In November, the boys of One Direction announced that they would launch a women’s fragrance, and today was the big reveal of their first scent, named Our Moment. The boys definitely built up some anticipation around it—Directioners were going wild as they teased the fragrance in parts via Twitter, just moments before the big unveiling at the top of London’s famed Gherkin skyscraper. “It’s been a long and exciting process, and we’re really proud to have made a One Direction fragrance,” Harry Styles said of the grapefruit, red currant, and jasmine blend. “I’ve tested it on my family and they love it!” Niall Horan added. “We can’t wait to show it to our fans across the world.” Our Moment hits Harrods in the UK on August 25, and arrives stateside this fall for $60.

We look to the One Direction members more for their catchy singles than their eye-catching hairstyles, but member Zayn Malik changed that when he debuted a new rocker look at a press conference in Tokyo yesterday. The 20-year-old has famously worn his strands in a gravity-defying pompadour, and while some Directioners may miss that lone blond highlight, we think his new style suits him. Do you like his new dark tousled cut? Tell us in the comments!
