International pop sensation Zayn Malik has created an uproar by gracing the cover of the February edition of Elle India magazine.
Flaunting his piercings and tattoos, the British-Pakistani crooner looks his casual best in a Tommy Hilfiger cricket jumper, reported Times Now News.
This is the first time that Zayn has featured in an Indian magazine.
Speaking about shooting with the former One Direction band member, Elle’s fashion editor Rahul Vijay said, “I kept the mood true to his rock ‘n’ roll personality and the choice of clothes was a mix of bomber jackets, denim, sharp suits and lots of prints, and textures.”
He went on to talk about how he did not know much about Zayn before. “I hadn’t heard his music before… I just knew him as a pop star who was dating Gigi Hadid. I would sometimes play his tracks in preparation for the shoot while doing call-ins.”
Speaking of the wardrobe, Rahul shared, “The white cricket sweater from the Hilfiger Collection with the neck adjusted to show off his tattoos seemed like an appropriate cover image. It’s preppy.”
The editor also revealed that the former boy band sensation had no idea how popular he was in India. “He loves Indian food and claims his mom makes the best Indian food around,” Rahul further stated.
