Zayn Malik, is that you?! The musician stepped out at Tom Ford’s show during New York Fashion Week on Sept. 7 to support his girlfriend Gigi Hadid, who was walking the runway, and we can’t stop staring at his newly grown out beard. Check out the pics right here!
Zayn Malik, 23, made a statement during NYFW when he debuted a new, longer beard at Gigi Hadid‘s first fashion show of the season. It’s certainly quite the change! The “Pillowtalk” singer showed off his new scruff, along with an all-black suit and turtleneck as he posed for photographers before the show.
This is the most drastic hair makeover we’ve seen from Zayn since he shaved the sides of his head in March of this year. He also shaved his entire head the year before, surprising fans with his new look in his first public appearance since quitting One Direction — yeah, remember them?
Zayn’s appearance at the NYFW show marks the first time he’s been seen out in public since canceling his performance for the Autism Rocks concert due to anxiety. He told fans that his anxiety cause him to lack “confidence”, and we’re so glad that he feels well enough to come out and support his girlfriend — he looks great!
Zayn aside, the real star of Tom Ford‘s show was Gigi, 21. She strutted her stuff in a dramatic black velvet gown that was accessorized with a huge harness/belt/corset piece, and her hair was in a sleek, low ponytail. Finally, her pretty face was plainly made up to better accentuate the clothes — such a cool look overall!
