So sweet! Zayn Malik was front and center to watch his gorgeous girlfriend, Gigi Hadid, strut her stuff on the Tom Ford catwalk for NYFW despite his severe anxiety.
Zayn Malik, 23, put his anxiety issues aside for his girlfriend, Gigi Hadid, 21, first for New York Fashion Week on Wednesday, September 7. The One Direction singer turned solo artist debuted his scruffy new beard while dressed in all black as he posed for photos before the show, where he proudly watched Gigi walk the runway.
During the Tom Ford show, Gigi looked incredible with her blonde hair slicked back into a low ponytail. For one look she rocked all black as well, unintentionally matching her man in the front row, with long sleeves in an ankle-length dress. The coolest part of Gigi’s Tom Ford gown was the belt, which looked like some sort of utility belt turned into a fashion accessory!
The fashion show was Zayn’s first public appearance since he canceled a scheduled performance for an Autism Rocks concert, citing his crippling anxiety as the cause of him backing out. In a heartfelt message to the fans that were waiting to see him perform, Zayn admitted that his anxiety was causing a major lack of “confidence.” So sad.
We’re glad to see that Zayn is obviously feeling better, and that he was able to show his support for Gigi during her first runway of the latest NYFW. Hopefully this is not the last we see of these two during the exciting week of fashion and partying in New York City!
