and One Direction member Harry Styles
are weathering winter nicely – and together.
The pals happily posed for photos with a fan, Allie Connolly, who posted on Thursday Instagram pics
of her chance meeting that happened at a snowboard shop
in Mammoth Lakes, Calif.
"Casually hanging out with Kendall Jenner and Harry Styles. #dying," Connolly noted in her Instagram post, which shows a pair of pics of her posing separately with Jenner, who wore a gray wool sweater and sunglasses atop her head, and Styles, decked out in a red-and-black plaid jacket and hoodie.
fans quickly responded to news of the sighting with disdain, Connolly noted in a Tweet. "Lol now I have 14 year olds telling me that I was paid to make this a publicity stunt. Yep, you caught me hahahah,” she wrote
of the backlash.
Jenner, 18, and Styles, 19, first stepped out together
for dinner in November.
Jenner has described their relationship
as just "friends," noting he is "cool."
Styles, when asked by CNN's Piers Morgan
in November if a relationship was in the works, offered up a succinct response: "Dunno."
