Well, that was awkward.

Gigi Hadid and Harry Styles weathered a seemingly uncomfortable interaction on the red carpet at the AMAs Sunday night.

Styles, 21, and his One Direction mates were talking to Giuliana Rancic ahead of the awards when Hadid showed up at E!’s raised platform, waiting off to the side for her own chat with Rancic.

“Do you guys wanna meet Gigi Hadid? Do you want to welcome her up? Come up, Gigi!” the E! host said when she saw the model, having the 1D boys clear a path and gesturing for Hadid to join them on the podium.

“Have you ever met One Direction, Gigi?” Rancic said once the model made her way up, at which point Hadid and Styles shared a quick handshake before giving the rest of the guys – Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson – hugs.

After the introduction, Rancic dismissed the band and continued her interview with Hadid. (Styles offered Hadid a friendly parting goodbye as the band walked away from the platform.)

Styles and Hadid have at least one common denominator: She’s in Taylor Swift‘s squad, while Styles used to date the 1989 singer.
