Poster boys

Nick Carter, 27, Backstreet Boys, single

I can see why fans who've been following us might have certain expectations about how men should dress from the way we style ourselves.

Kian Egan Egan, 27, Westlife, in long-term relationship

The whole basis of a boy band is quite vain. At first, our record label was very concentrated on how the band looked. As the years went on, we didn't develop our own style exactly, but we know now what we like. The whole image of a boy band is so important. But it's not necessarily something that we think about ourselves.

Mark Feehily, 27, Westlife, in long-term relationship

We've never been a tops-off band - not like Take That. When we first started, it was a nightmare - I hated wearing all the make-up and I didn't want to wear moisturiser.But if we've contributed to the idea that men can look after themselves, and get stuff waxed and so on, then that's good. And I love the way that men are getting a bit more involved in fashion. To an extent, the boy band industry was all geared towards gay men and teenagers when we started, and I think that we were part of it moving towards being more laddish. We made it OK for a 17-year-old straight boy to dress differently.

Howie Dorough, 34, Backstreet Boys, engaged

I don't look in the mirror every morning and see a really attractive person. But I do think that we had a part to play in making it OK for guys to enjoy dressing up. I think, since we started, metrosexuality has become the norm.

Nicky Byrne, 29, Westlife, married

Maybe we five lads were the marketing man's dream at the beginning, but it wouldn't have worked unless we had something more than looks. We don't care about the 'boy band' label. We think we've got depth.

Shane Filan, 28, Westlife, married

I think we helped make it OK for boys to look after themselves. I mean, 10 years ago a guy would even have been afraid to go for a massage - especially in Ireland!


Westlife's new album Back Home and the Backstreet Boys' new album Unbreakable are both out now
