Who exactly is Paige Reifler, the girl who's been linked to Harry?

One Direction fans are gutted after hearing model Paige Reifler‘s claim that she’s dating curly-haired heartthrob Harry Styles.

The 18-year-old says she hit it off with Harry, 20, after they hung out at London’s trendy private members’ club Shoreditch House at the weekend.

‘I went to the Warner party at Shoreditch House with a friend and saw him there. The next morning I woke up and I was in all of the newspapers and magazines,’ says Paige.

‘I wasn’t expecting that, it’s not like that in New York. Yes, I am seeing him.’

But is American Paige the girl that can finally get Harry to settle down? We find out a bit more about the pretty blonde…

1. This isn’t the first time she’s been on the scene

The pair were first linked when 1D were on tour in New York in August 2012.

Last September, a snap was posted to Instagram – before it was deleted – which allegedly showed Paige straddling Harry while they shared a kiss.

Two other photographs of Paige and Harry hanging out were also uploaded but then erased.

2. Harry has apparently been wearing her ring

Eagle-eyed Directioners have noticed that Harry is rocking a ring that looks very similar to one that’s been seen on Paige’s finger.

Paige has reportedly also been wearing Harry’s clothes.

3. It looks like she’s getting in with Harry’s pals

Earlier today, the New Yorker followed Harry’s close friend Nick Grimshaw on Twitter.

Awkwardly, she also has Harry’s rumoured ex Kendall Jenner as one of her contacts on the site.

4. She’s already got quite a following

Paige has 26,312 Instagram fans and 14,200 on Twitter. Popular!

5. Harry isn’t the only celebrity who’s taken a interest in her

Paige claims she caught Orlando Bloom‘s eye when she sat in the front row of his Broadway play Romeo And Juliet.

‘His manager came and got me after the show and asked if I wanted to go backstage. I couldn’t believe it,’ Paige tells the Daily Mirror.

‘We chatted and he said I looked as though I didn’t enjoy it, but I really did!

‘We texted for a bit, it was after he’d split from Miranda Kerr. I didn’t hear anything else from him. But yeah, I wish.’
