The 21-year-old singer’s always been a snappy dresser, but landing such a prestigious style accolade will no doubt leave his fellow One Direction boys a teeny bit jealous – and his Little Mix lady beaming with wife-to-be pride.
Beating off stiff competition from the likes of David Gandy, Robert Pattinson and even bandmate Harry Styles, the super sharp Bradford lad rose to the top of the poll to be named as the readers’ most popular style-spiration.
GQ said of Zayn’s victory: ‘In a sea of generic monochrome suiting on the red carpet, Malik stands alone.’
‘He was an early adopter of the bold bomber-jacket trend, wears camo with the casual ease of a Territorial Army foot solider and is possibly the only person on earth who can get away with a dark shirt under a dark suit at an awards show.
‘No wonder he was the first member of One Direction to get engaged…’
We actually feel a little bit proud. Move over Hazza, there’s a new FROW king in town.
