Cat Velez - 28th Oct 2015

One Direction’s second single from Made in the A.M., has been paired with this beautifully shot monochromatic video by Sophie Muller, shot at New York’s InterContinental Hotel.

Following up her recent videos for the likes of Selena Gomez and Sam Smith, Sophie has captured the boys living the rockstar lifestyle, causing trouble up in hotel rooms, getting a tattoos, and brooding over ex-romances.

The video for Perfect sees Harry, Liam, Niall and Louis, having reached the dizzying heights of jet-set stardom, confessing the difficulties of staying in committed relationships. Instead, they opt for a more casual, in-the-moment approach to romance, wanting to remain the guys 'you love from time to time.'

Damn, that aloof and unattainable appeal is a killer!
