It seems that John and Edward (more commonly referred to as Jedward) have grown up!
Thanks to Grazia magazine, the 18-year-old ex-X Factor contestants have been treated to a makeover. Gone are the huge quiffs and suit/hi-top trainer combinations that we usually see them with. Instead, they have a sleek new image, complete with side partings, tailored suits and sunglasses.
In the space of weeks, Jedward have morphed from unknown, slightly off-key wannabes to international pop icons with fans ranging from David Cameron, Kelly Osbourne, Pixie Lott and Henry Holland, to Will Young and Agyness Deyn.
The boys are preparing their next move with speculation they’ll do everything from appearing in the next 118 advert to becoming the new Ant and Dec. They’re certainly in demand – last week, they had to charter a private helicopter to enable them to make all their public appearances around the UK.
"We love fashion," says Edward. "We don’t really wear specific designers as we can’t afford them. But when we were on the show it was more about us having a slick solid image that had impact rather than a label. We hardly ever wore T-shirts – only shirts with ties."
The boys are styled by Britain’s most influential male stylists Mark Anthony, Frank Strachan and Tom Stubbs in this week’s issue, on sale now.
What do you think of their new image? Hot, or not?
