So happy birthday, Zayn! May this year bring you love, happiness, and selfies abound!

Update: A previous version of this story said Harry's eyes are blue. They are not. This post has been updated to reflect the fact that Harry Style's eyes are very very green.
Update: The photos in #16 and #17 have apparently been deleted since publication, so those photos have been changed as well.
