Since finding fame in the X Factor nearly two years ago, Harry Styles has made no secret of his love for the ladies.
And it appears the One Direction singer, 18, been a bit of ladykiller since his school days, by the look of his prom photos.
A host of candid photos have been posted on Twitter showing the then-wannabe star posed up with a variety of pretty schoolfriends at his high school prom in Cheshire.

Wearing a black suit and flamboyant fuchsia flower in his button hole, Harry's still got his signature curly hair and cheeky grin.
Styles was 16 and was doing his GCSEs at Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School when he first auditioned for X Factor in summer 2010.
He was even the frontman for his school band White Eskimo, which won the Battle Of The Bands competition in 2009.

Another Twitter photo shows his bandmate Louis Tomlinson at his high school prom in Doncaster in 2008.
In contrast to his long floppy fringe, Louis and his friends had matching, gelled spiky hair.
Louis, now 20, did his GCSEs and started his A'levels at the Hayfield School. However, he ended up enrolling at Hall Cross School after failing the first years of his A'levels at Hayfield.
However, unlike Harry, Louis isn't surrounded by women, but by some of his best male friends.

Meanwhile, their Irish bandmate Niall Horan admitted he didn't get to go to his own prom because he didn't finish school.
Complaining he was repeatedly asked to be a date at fans' proms, he said: 'What is it with me and proms I didn’t even get to go to my own one… I didn’t even get to finish school.'
Meanwhile, the One Direction boys have got on board with the new wristband campaign for Meg Bhari’s charity Believe in Magic.
The charity is hoping to raise money by selling wristbands with proceeds going to funding fun activities for seriously and terminally children.
