It's been a whirlwind few months for former One Direction member Zayn Malik, and in preparation for the release of his first solo album "Mind of Mine," he's been hitting the fashion scene hard. Aside from sitting front row at the Louis Vuitton and Valentino's menswear shows in Paris over the summer, he's scored some big time magazine covers — Interview, The Fader, L'Uomo Vogue — and has been spending tons of quality time with his "good friend," model Gigi Hadid.
As luck would have it, Hadid is a seasoned music video veteran — thanks to leading roles in clips by another hot pair, Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris — so it's only fitting that Zayn, who now goes by a single name, cast her in the video for his brand new track "Pillowtalk," which hit the web at midnight on Friday. The trippy, kaleidoscopic clip is about as sexy as they come, and features the some pretty great fashion that includes Versace on Hadid and Versus Versace on Zayn (though most of the looks are a bit hard to see) and a lot of making out. While we may be a wee bit guilty of writing this relationship off as a PR play, we're eating our words right about now. Damn.
This story has been updated to include both Hadid and Zayn's clothing credits.
