Only Four turn up in FOUR promo! Where is Zayn?


FOUR may be doomed to fail…When One Direction turns up for promo of their new album, there were talks of fashion and more of explanations for Zayn Absence…


Still the fashion fads give a nod to 1D. One minute they're in the studio taking part in Band Aid 2014 and the next they're in Orlando, Florida chatting with American presenter Matt Lauer in front of thousands of screaming fans.



But whatever they're up to the boys always look good. They're all stylish in their own ways and while Harry Styles normally gets most of the attention when it comes to clothes, the other lads can definitely hold their own.

One Direction recently lent their voices to the new Band Aid single along with a host of other stars. And, while they were present as a five-piece for the recording of the iconic new charity single, just four of them made it to a promotional appearance for their new album Four in Orlando on Monday November 17, 2014.

Zayn Malik had to miss the flight with his band mates to America as he wasn't well enough to fly

Check out Niall Horan. We're used to seeing him in a bomber or varsity jacket but today he switched it up for a red checked shirt and skinny jeans. And like with women's fashion at the moment, if you're going to wear denim it has to be distressed.

Niall's skinny jeans are from good old Topman and are a great choice for any aspiring boyband members out there. Click the link (right) to buy a pair now and then style them up this winter with chunky knits and a parka or tuck in a slim cut shirt, adding a thin silk scarf like Harry for extra rock 'n' roll edge.

Oh. This whole stuff is about fashion… what about the new album Four?

India's River Diversion Plan and South Asia's Waters

More dams are to come, as India’s need to power its economy means it is quietly spending billions on hydropower in Kashmir. The Senate report totted up 33 hydro projects in the border area with Pakistan. The state’s chief minister, Omar Abdullah, says dams will add an extra 3,000MW to the grid in the next eight years alone. Some analysts in Srinagar talk of over 60 dam projects, large and small, now on the books.
