While at the Victoria Secret show in Shanghai earlier this week, former One Direction member Harry Styles cited singer-songwriter Shania Twain as his biggest inspiration and influence, both in fashion and in music. And their friendship is the sweetest thing!
Harry Styles: Shania Twain is my ‘main’ fashion influence https://t.co/Q29W5J482q https://t.co/iqhoFJ7OXt— NYPost Fashion (@NYPost Fashion) 1511976988.0
"I think both music and fashion, [my] main influence was probably Shania Twain," Styles admitted to Entertainment Tonight. "Yeah, I think she's amazing."
Harry and Shania really are style twins. They both love solid bootcut pants paired with black boots. And whether pleats or pants, both pull off silky pink like nobody’s business.

"Just when I thought Harry Styles couldn’t get any more perfect, he said that Shania Twain is his fashion inspiration."

They even have a legit friendship, which began with a couple of tweets back in 2013.
It all started with Styles expressing his admiration for Shania.
Shania Twain is so good.— Harry Styles. (@Harry Styles.) 1381194795.0
To which she replied, calling his tweet "sweet." She even invited him and his buddies to visit her and her show in Vegas!
Thank you for your sweet tweet, @Harry_Styles . U and @onedirection are welcome to a #ShaniaInVegas show anytime!— Shania Twain (@Shania Twain) 1381199530.0
And thus there was a budding friendship indeed. She's not shy at giving him props for a great fashion choice.
😍 @Harry_Styles' suit! https://t.co/EdHrrdafqJ— Shania Twain (@Shania Twain) 1506185112.0
Hey Harry, I think Shania wants to borrow that suit!
Now their fans are clamoring for a collaboration.

Then there was this thing about a kazoo.
Seems Harry likes to play Shania's music on the tiny wind instrument.
Also pinching myself cause I was in a room with @Harry_Styles playing @ShaniaTwain music on a kazoo. Lol.— Bryan Lanning ➳ (@Bryan Lanning ➳) 1505537521.0
Soon as Shania saw the tweet the following morning, she showed just how much she wants Harry to play her music on the kazoo: "I would LOVE to hear that"
@bryanlanning @Harry_Styles I would LOVE to hear that 😘— Shania Twain (@Shania Twain) 1505564691.0
So would the fans.

Then last week someone noticed Harry listening to Shania's "Man! I Feel Like a Woman" to pump himself up before a show.

Perhaps top hat included.
