Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid’s relationship is just getting started. The hot couple just graced the pages of U.S. Vogue, in which they were photographed kissing and cuddling in retro outfits, and sometimes, next to nothing.
The pair, referred to as “Zigi” by their fans, is being featured in an exclusive editorial shoot for Vogue. The “Roman” spread is inside the May 2016 issue. Zayn Malik, 23, and Gigi Hadid, 20, went to Naples for their super sexy photo shoot, where they packed on the PDA.
Fans are freaking out over this photo shoot because it’s the first time that the couple has been featured in a major magazine. Zayn and Gigi had graced the covers of countless magazines and publications for the past few months, but never together as an actual couple. The editorial spread, “Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik’s Wanton Weekend in Naples,” was shot by famed fashion photographer Mario Testino and features the couple wearing some sophisticated looks.

In one of the photos, the hot stars are seen kissing on the balcony as Hadid wears a plaid sleeveless Victoria Beckham dress. In fact, there’s a lot of plaid in the shoot, as Vogue explains that “plaids are eminently of-the-moment way to play with scale.”
Gigi and Zayn are also photographed sitting on top of a motorcycle and holding hands while checking out the city. Gigi wears a light blue gingham shirt paired with red plaid-trimmed leather pants. Meanwhile, Zayn sticks to his slick signature style in a black motorcycle jacket and ripped jeans. There’s also a photo of Zayn lying in bed while Gigi is performing a handstand kiss on top of him and wearing a red gingham bikini by Solid & Striped.
The first time the power couple was featured together was in Malik’s debut video for “Pillowtalk,” where they’re seen kissing, cuddling, and smiling at each other. Their killer chemistry helped the song rise to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. He’s also been living off the success of his debut album, Mind of Mine, which has topped both the U.S. and UK charts. During the release party, an insider told Us Weekly that Malik and Hadid couldn’t stop making out with each other.

“They looked very happy and were all over each other,” the alleged source said, adding that the happy couple were “sitting very close together and kissing each other” all night long.
Earlier that night, Zayn and Gigi helped a fan who was knocked down as the couple was swarmed by paparazzi and other fans. Another source told Hollywood Life that Gigi is a huge fan of Zayn’s album.
“Gigi thinks Mind of Mine is the best album she has ever listened to and is convinced it will be nominated for a Grammy Award,” the source confirmed to the celebrity gossip blog.
The fans agree as well. His new album peaked at No. 1 in U.S. and UK as well as Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, and Sweden. Malik has also become the first British male solo artist to debut at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 album chart.
His album, Mine of Mine, has been sold and streamed over 157,000 times in its first week alone in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music.
At the 2016 iHeartRadio Awards on Sunday night, the heartthrob showed everyone what he’s made of by performing his new song, “Like I Would.” Last week, Zayn thanked his fans and his record label for their support.
“I want to thank all the fans and my team at RCA and First Access Entertainment for everything they have done to help me start my journey as a solo artist. It really is the beginning. I can’t believe that I have managed to achieve this as a solo artist. I am very proud coming from Bradford achieving this in my home country. It’s mind-blowing to me. I don’t take the support I have received for granted. My life at 23 could have been very different.”
