Yan Yan Chan, a globe-trotting model and fashionista from Sydney, is rumored to have had an affair with Styles (pictured) after the Love On Tour star walked into her DMS and invited her to a party after his concert on the 4th of March.
New Zealand model Georgia, 30, married her husband, Fishbowl founder Nathan Dalah, in January this year.
Fowler and Chan have worked together, starring in a modeling shoot on Lord Howe Island in 2021.
Originally from Hong Kong, Chan now lives in Bondi – and was recently dating former reality star turned model and influencer Nathan Jolliffe.
But friends say Chan is now ‘firmly single’ and sparked rumors of a love affair with Styles when she appeared in the gold-class corporate box for his latest show in Sydney.
Chan is also friends with Harry’s ex, Georgia Fowler (pictured), whom pop star Harry dated in 2015 and is the rumored subject of his hit song Kiwi.

A well-placed source has since told Daily Mail Australia how their relationship began, stating that it was Harry who made the first move by “slipping into Yan Yan’s DMs and inviting her to attend a private after party”.
The couple also have a number of other mutual contacts. Chan has signed with American talent powerhouse The Society Management in New York, which represents a number of A-list stars and models, including Style’s former Kendall Jenner.
Interestingly, Chan also has a New York accommodation located just a few blocks from Style’s $8.7 million Tribeca apartment and mixes in the same artistic circles as the British heartthrob who has now taken his show Love on Tour to the Philippines. .
“Harry and Yan Yan would certainly not be strangers to each other,” says a top Sydney talent agent who is not affiliated with any of the rumored new couples.
He noted that Styles was seen partying with a swarm of young models at Justin Hemmes’ mansion shortly after his last show in Sydney.

‘Yan Yan would be well known to that crowd. If Harry wanted to get in touch with her, he would have no problem doing so,” the agent said.
Styles’ representatives have not commented on the singers’ personal connections while in Australia, while Chan was contacted for comment.
Starting out as a fashion blogger in 2009, Chan duly began her rise through the ranks of top modeling in Australia.
Over the years, he’s booked a handful of major international campaigns, and locally, he’s appeared in editorials for Seafolly and Sir The Label.
More recently, she has taken on a behind-the-scenes role as Art Director, producing work for Net-A-Porter and Tiffany and Co.
His official biography on The Society Management website states that Chan “has firmly established his presence in front of and behind the camera lens at a multitude of global brands.”
Chan dated reality star-turned-influencer Nathan Jolliffe for several years.
Starting out as a fashion blogger in 2009, Chan began her climb up the top modeling rankings in Australia.
“Burning onto the scene as a fashion blogger in 2009, she has established herself as a stalwart creative director, photographer and creative consultant that is a far cry from the usual notion of ‘influencer’.”
Meanwhile, Georgia Fowler is now happily married and has put her past affair with Harry behind her.
The Victoria’s Secret model was rumored to have dated the One Direction singer in a short-lived romance in 2015.
In 2017, he addressed speculation that the British star wrote a song about his suggested affair.
When asked about Harry’s Kiwi song on The Morning Show, his face fell before addressing the question.
Georgia’s smile faded as host Kylie Gillies slipped a final question into her chat: “Harry Styles, there’s a song on your album called Kiwi, can you confirm or deny it’s named after you?”
The song ‘Kiwi’ from Styles’ self-titled debut album has long been rumored to be about the brunette beauty and features the curious lyric: ‘I think she said ‘I’m having your baby, it’s none of your business.’
‘Ah, I really don’t know anything about it,’ Georgia shook her head, after referring to Harry as a ‘friend’.
He quickly added, “I definitely don’t have a baby… that’s what the song is about.”
Without ruling it out, however, he suggested: “I think it’s highly unlikely.”
In 2017, Georgia addressed speculation that a song by British star, Kiwi, was written about her suggested affair. “Ah, I really don’t know anything about it,” Georgia said.
