Gigi Hadid Focuses On Modeling Amid Zayn Malik’s Anxiety Struggles

Gigi Hadid continues to see success as a model as her boyfriend, former One Direction singer Zayn Malik, struggles with anxiety as a solo artist.

Following Malik’s Twitter announcement regarding his mental health, Gigi Hadid has been spotted on a number of photo shoots, the latest of which took place in New York City on Monday.

“She has been working hard on her craft since her modelling career began as a child. And now Gigi Hadid is definitely a sight to see,” the Daily Mail revealed to readers on July 18. “The 21-year-old model was spotted posing atop a red sightseeing bus in New York City for her latest photo shoot on Monday.”

In photos of Gigi Hadid, the model was seen wearing a blue and silver minidress as her long straight hair, which was parted in the middle, was blown around by the wind. Meanwhile, her fellow model, Tanzania’s Herieth Paul, stood beside her in an identical dress with pink highlights.

According to the report, Gigi Hadid’s latest shoot was for the makeup company Maybelline, which she was named the face of in January of last year.

Over the weekend, Gigi Hadid was once again photoshoot ready in New York City, but at the time, she didn’t appear to be taking part in any shoots. Instead, she walked the streets of the Big Apple in retro sunglasses, big hair, a white T-shirt, and jeans before meeting with boyfriend Malik for a night out on the town.

“While [Gigi Hadid], who’s currently the face of Tommy Hilfiger’s The Girl fragrance, appeared to be alone for part of her day, the Vogue US cover girl was later joined by boyfriend Zayn Malik, 23,” the Daily Mail reported on July 17.

After meeting with Malik, Gigi Hadid threw on a jacket and aviator shades for her nighttime look as Malik kept it casual in a pair of jeans and an army green coat.

Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have been dating since November of last year and in June of this year, they briefly split. After struggling with relationship issues after Gigi Hadid’s 21st birthday in April, the couple was said to be on the rocks and in early June, their breakup was confirmed. However, just a short time later, Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik were back on and after Malik exposed his struggles with anxiety to his many fans and followers on social media, Gigi Hadid expressed her support with a post of her own.

“I’ve seen the battles you go through and the way you fight to get to a place that allows you to get up there for your fans. Your bravery in those times makes me proud, but your honesty last night proved what you’re all about, being real,” Gigi Hadid wrote to her boyfriend on June 12.

“Human recognizes human. You made the best of the situation and have given your fans an opportunity to understand you better as a performer,” she continued. “Those who can find compassion now are the ones that deserve to watch you continue to grow. We are all here to support you and make each experience easier. Your talent and good heart will never lead you wrong. Love you and so proud of you always.”

Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik confirmed they were back on around the time of his anxiety reveal and have appeared to be going strong ever since.
