Gigi Hadid And Zayn Malik: All The Reasons Why They’ll Be The Next Power Couple

Beyonce and Jay Z. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. David and Victoria Beckham. These celebrity power couples have made headlines for their talent, business savvy and endorsement deals. Now, Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are said to be the duo to watch as the pair is slated to achieve power couple status in the future.

Individually, Hadid and Malik are impressive. The former One Direction boy band member has successfully embarked on a solo career, releasing his debut solo album “Mind of Mine” last year and becoming the first British male solo artist to debut at number one on the Billboard charts with his first album.

Meanwhile, the 21-year-old is 2016’s International Model of the Year and is one of the most sought-after models in the fashion and beauty industry. Together, they are a force to be reckoned with, and the pair, nicknamed ZiGi by their fans, have all the makings of becoming the next celebrity power couple.

Here are all the reasons why Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik will join the ranks of the most powerful celebrity couples in the world.

They celebrate their heritage

Both Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik take pride in their heritage, which makes them very appealing to fans all over the world. The model’s mother, Yolanda Hadid, is Dutch-American, while her father, Mohamed Hadid, is Palestinian-American. Back in 2015, Gigi took to Instagram to post a picture of what appears to be Henna tattoos on her hands, and it was captioned, “Check out the last name. Hadid. Half Palestinian & proud of it.”

Meanwhile, Malik’s father is British Pakistani, while his mother is English and of part Irish descent. Last year, the New York Times reported that the 23-year-old singer included an interlude on his new album titled “Flower,” which he sang in Urdu. It’s clear to see that Zayn Malik is proud of his heritage, just as his girlfriend is proud of hers.

They’re not afraid to pursue other projects

Zayn has written a personal memoir and has recently collaborated with Giuseppe Zanotti to make a shoe line. The collection includes a modern take on the Chelsea boot named Zigi, according to Us Weekly, which fans are interpreting as a nod to his relationship with Gigi Hadid.

Meanwhile, apart from starring in campaigns for Guess, Balmain, Penshoppe, Versace, Top Shop, Tommy Hilfiger, and Stuart Weitzman, among others, Gigi dabbled in a bit of acting in a short film for V Magazine back in 2015. She also released her Stuart Weitzman boot collection back in October and is the new brand ambassador of Reebok.

They have a strong social media following

Gigi Hadid has over 27 million followers on Instagram, 3.76 million followers on Twitter, and over 3 million followers on Facebook. Zayn Malik has 18 million followers on Instagram, 20.6 million followers on Twitter, and more than 19 million followers on Facebook.

People genuinely like to see them together

No matter how much money a celebrity couple makes, it’s unlikely that they’ll get power couple status if they have no chemistry. Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik’s chemistry is off the charts, as people genuinely swoon over photos of the couple looking loved up at events and on their social media feed. Several very memorable Gigi and Zayn moments happened during the couple’s Vogue shoot last year, where the pair posed as lovers in Italy.

Both Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are young, and the two definitely have a bright future ahead of them. Will they stay together and eventually end up on the power couple list? Only time will tell, but as of now, these two are the most likely candidates who could make it to the elite group.
