Zayn Malik, Gigi Hadid Continue Building Fashion Focus, But Not Always As A Couple

Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid are enamored with each other, as usual, but they are also working hard on their careers. Obviously, Zayn Malik is a musician, and, around July 15, he was featured on a song from Snakehips called “Cruel.”

Nevertheless, Zayn Malik is also sharing a lot of headlines with Gigi Hadid concerning fashion. For example, on May 2, Vogue reported that Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik wore science fiction formal clothing for The Met’s Gala theme of Manus X Machina.

Obviously, fans love when Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik post pictures of themselves, so it is no surprise that they were nominated as the King and Queen of Social Media, as previously reported by the Inquisitr.

In addition, Zayn Malik is also working on his own angle for fashion because he sells clothing merchandise on his music website.

According to a July 18 report from Guardian, this is a popular angle for many modern musicians because most of their fans no longer pay for music.

On top of that, Zayn Malik is placing a focus on his sense of style by donating an iconic Marc Jacobs punk biker jacket to charity. UnReality TV reported on July 20 that the jacket from Zayn Malik is being raffled to benefit a mental health charity called Mind.


Naturally, being heavily involved in fashion makes a lot of sense for Gigi Hadid because she is a model, but that does not mean she is boring.

For example, on July 21, Elite Daily said only Gigi Hadid could pull off getting a fast food hamburger in a sequined designer gown… and make it look normal.

Interestingly, in this same video about Gigi Hadid and her life in Los Angeles, she was riding around with RuPaul, and he suggested Gigi should wear a medical mask to disguise herself from the paparazzi.

However, what Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik fans may not realize is that for most of 2016, she has been preparing to fulfill her contract with Tommy Hilfiger.

Gigi Hadid’s “The Girl” commercial for the new Tommy Hilfiger fragrance was released around July 21, according to Daily Mail, but their professional relationship began in September 2015.

At that time, Gigi Hadid must have made an impression when she modeled for Tommy Hilfiger at his New York Fashion Week show, according to Sports Illustrated.

A few months later, around December 16, 2015, it was announced that Gigi Hadid signed a contract as a “brand ambassador” for Tommy Hilfiger, according to Observer.

NY Times quoted Tommy Hilfiger talking about his ideas for Gigi Hadid and he stated the following.

“We’re really doing something different. We’re creating a line called Gigi by Tommy Hilfiger, using her style, her sense, her social media presence as the top supermodel in the world today.”

Since signing the contract to work with Tommy Hilfiger in December, Gigi Hadid has modeled for his New York Fashion Week show in mid-February, according to Hello.

As far as designing, Gigi Hadid said she came up with the idea for her dress for the Manus X Machina theme for The Met Gala and Tommy Hilfiger created it from a drawing, according to Daily Mail.

With that in mind, there may be more to come from Gigi Hadid designing for Tommy Hilfiger, meaning it may eventually result in her having her own, independent fashion line.

This means that, although Gigi Hadid has modeled and acted for Zayn Malik’s video “Pillowtalk,” there may come a day where the shoe is on the other foot. For instance, if designing with Tommy Hilfiger ends up being a successful venture, Gigi Hadid might have Zayn Malik model for her.
