James Styles & Writes Cover Story featuring ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Alum

FAVE Cover Natalie HallJames has been off these last few weeks working on new projects but we had to tell you the latest. A few months ago, James styled actress Natalie Hall for the cover of Canadian Magazine FAVE. In addition, he was also asked to write the cover story.

Natalie is a native Canadian, so this shoot was personal for the actress. Continue reading
