He's well known for his trademark brown curls but Harry Styles underwent a dramatic transformation for the new One Direction music video. In a teaser shot taken from the set of Best Song Ever, the teen pin-up looks unrecognisable with slicked back hair, glasses and geeky get-up. "Who's this clever-looking guy…? Make sure you check back at 6pm for BestSongEverTrailer3," the accompanying caption says.

Harry, 19, is not the only member of 1D to have taken on a new persona for the video. Liam Payne appears as a choreographer called Leeroy, wearing a tennis-inspired ensemble complete with a blonde wig and a pink headband.Writing on Twitter about his sporty new look, Liam joked, "Gutted I left that headband on setttt. "At first glance, even the most dedicated 1D fans wouldn't recognise Niall Horan. The fresh-faced singer looks decades older wearing rubber prosthetics, a false beard and a pin-stripe suit — many fans have likened the end results to The Apprentice mogul Lord Sugar.
