The buxom bikini babe was rumored to be dating New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez earlier this year, but it looks like the Sports Illustrated cover girl has her sights set on a younger man now…

And that man is none other than 18-year-old pop star Harry Styles, the resident cougar chaser of British boy band One Direction!

It all started when Upton was shown a picture of One Direction during one of her many photo shoots. Out of the five boys in the group, the blonde beauty immediately zeroed in on Styles, whom she said was “the cutest” of them all.

Harry, who previously dated 32-year-old TV presenter Caroline Flack, will be meeting Kate at the MTV Video Music Awards this September 6.

And maybe… just maybe… sparks will fly.

Do you think Kate and Harry would make a cute couple?
