After covers on niche magazines like Paper and Dazed, Zayn is making a major leap forward to the cover of ELLE UK. To top it off, it’ll be the coveted September issue spot.
His face (featuring eyelashes for days and a scruffy beard) along with Kristen Stewart, Amandla Stenberg, and Hari Nef’s, will share a part of ELLE UK’s “rise of the rebel” cover series.
According to the Daily Mail, Zayn’s accompanying article in the issue touches on his relationship with supermodel Gigi Hadid, his insecurities since going solo, and his acting ambitions.
Since appearing at major fashion week shows and launching an online Kanye-like range of merchandise without a tour, Zayn seems to be dipping his toe into the fashion world. A September issue fashion magazine cover cements his place there.
