Zayn Malik literally became a knight in shining armor for his girlfriend Gigi Hadid in their first red carpet debut as a couple at the Met Gala in New York on Monday.
According to a report from MTV News, Zayn Malik walked the red carpet wearing sleeves of armor over his suit jacket while Gigi Hadid flaunted her fabulous dress composed of a metallic corset, sheer chiffon skirt, and matching choker. The former One Direction star and his model lover gave a unique entourage wearing matching metallic outfits. Everyone was surprised with Zayn’s fashion statement and other joked about him being the next Iron Man.
The couple seems to be in good terms but is not giving any hints if they are going to a serious commitment. Zayn and Gigi started dating since November 2015 and confirmed their relationship in March 2016. Gigi celebrated her birthday with Zayn, including other celebrities, at the celebrity hotspot The Nice Guy last Thursday.
The 21-year-old model had a problem getting out in the venue in the early hours of the morning but somehow Zayn Malik came to rescue his princess and took her to safety. Gigi returned the favor by kissing Zayn in the back of their waiting car as a way of saying thank you for his effort and overflowing sweetness.
Though everyone seemed happy seeing the couple in a good term, Gigi’s ex-boyfriend, American singer Joe Jonas, broke his silence about his ex-girlfriend’s ‘new relationship’. However, Jonas said that he was happy with Gigi and that she had moved on so quickly but expressed his disappointment frankly saying how quick he was replaced by his ex-girlfriend.
On the other hand, Zayn also came from a relationship before Gigi. Zayn got engaged with Perrie Edwards of Little Mix in 2013 but ended their engagement in August 2015 without giving any reasons to the public.
