#FashionCrush – Zayn Malik (@zaynmalik)

One could argue that Zayn Malik was too hot to stand next to four other guys in a group.

Normally the person that leaves the group is under constant scrutiny about what they’re gonna do next and how is their career gonna withstand a solo career.  Who could blame people for wondering how someone could leave the number one boy band since the Beatles with countless hit records. When you’re the heartthrob of the group, however, one never needs to fret. Since leaving One Direction in 2015, Zayn Malik’s career has seen incredible heights. After signing a solo deal with RCA Records, Malik’s first single Pillowtalk debuted at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 as well as a series of music charts in the UK and other European countries.

With a successful music career under his belt, Malik then began to focus on a lucrative career in fashion.  He has collaborated on a number of high profile collections with Italian shoe brand, Giuseppe Zanotti and Versus Versace which debuted in May of 2017.  His personal style also gained notoriety when The Business of Fashion listed him on their BOF500 list of the most influential people in fashion.  Malik can usually be seen around cities like New York and Los Angeles looking casually cool in band tees, ripped jeans, and rocking a number of different hair do’s like buzz cuts and, most recently, the ubiquitous man bun.

The presence of Zayn Malik is never lost at the biggest fashion shows.  Thanks to his influence on fashion (or possibly thanks to his romance with supermodel, GiGi Hadid), Malik is always front row at shows like Louis Vuitton and Balmain, the latter of which is his designer of choice for most events.

The popularity of Zayn Malik and his keen fashion sense can possibly be attributed to the lack of male presence on the fashion scene. Malik’s relatability will ensure that we’ve only seen the beginning of his thriving career in fashion.
