He was clutching his wash bag and wearing the token celebrity sunglasses, while she was simply smiling as though she had a secret she wasn't willing to share.
Harry Styles and Taylor Swift emerged from the same hotel just moments apart on Wednesday morning, dotting the i and crossing the t for the rumour mill on whether they are really a couple.
The country singer, 22, was smiling to herself as she glided out of the hotel in Manhattan in a cute hat and navy jacket while her new friend Harry, 18, looked pretty pleased with himself as he left the building.
Crowds said the pair may not have left the hotel together but there were only moments between the two pushing open the lobby doors.
Both had obviously had time to preen their star looks with Harry's stylish mop pulled into perfection while Taylor didn't have a hair out of place.
Harry simply kept his boy band/rock star look sharp with jeans and a T-shirt, while Taylor looked cute in jeans and a tailored coat.
Presumably Harry and Taylor had a spare change of clothes as there was no walk of shame with both looking decidedly different from when they entered the hotel at 4am on Tuesday morning.
They had sparked rumours of a romance earlier this week after they were spotted enjoying a romantic stroll through New York's Central Park.
The singer was spotted holding hands with Harry Styles as she arrived back at her hotel with him in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
