Ah, young love. One moment you're hitting the Met Gala red carpet in matching robot gear and canoodling all over Snapchat, and the next, you're dunzo.

At least, that's what seems to have happened to our favorite young It Couple du jour, Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik. And just when we were starting to believe! If you're skeptical of E!'s report, we have to admit the signs are all there: Hadid's Snapchat is full of moments with best friend Kendall Jenner and #KenGi. The last time we heard this much talk of KenGi was right after Malik called her a "good friend" in an interview and Jenner went on a #KenGi Twitter spree.

While we're sure there are plenty of reasons #ZiGi is over, we could have called this all the way back in April when the pair's hot Vogue photoshoot leaked. Everyone knows you don't shoot as a couple for Vogue! Malik and Hadid are just the latest in a long list of model relationships that went south after appearing in the glossy. A$AP Rocky and Chanel Iman, Adam Levine and Anne V, Agyness Deyn and Albert Hammond Jr, Kate Moss and Jamie Hince, Natalia Vodianova and Justin Portman: all lessons that posing for Vogue as a couple is the kiss of death (and also, perhaps, that Vogue could be shooting more same-sex couples). 

There's now a power couple vacuum in the system, though, so any PYTs who have a thing for rockstars, now is your moment. But remember: When Vogue comes calling, just say no.
