Could this be considered a friendly outing? Harry Styles was seen getting close to his rumored partner Taylor Russell in London on Wednesday, during the premiere of her play The Effect. Although Styles maintained a low profile during the actual performance, the Daily Mail obtained photographs from an afterparty that are likely to spark speculation. In the pictures, Styles can be seen placing his hand on Russell’s lower back, while Russell rests her hand on his shoulder. The pair was also photographed mingling with Styles’s friend James Corden. While these images may not compare to the more passionate photos of Styles kissing Emily Ratajkowski in Tokyo back in March, fans have gathered other clues suggesting that Styles and Russell, who were first spotted together in late June, might be dating. In July, the actress from Bones and All was spotted dancing in the VIP section at one of Styles’s Love on Tour concerts in Vienna. After the show, Styles was seen strolling around the city with Russell, leading fans to believe that he was captivated not only by the performance but also by the actress herself.
