In Hollywood, you are not an official couple until you make it red carpet official. And — Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have finally made their red carpet debut as a couple.
Leave it to this supermodel and rockstar to do it with a bang. The couple made their first public appearance absolutely iconic by picking the 2016 Met Gala’s red carpet to do it. They met at a friend’s birthday party a few years before they started dating in November 2015.

Good thing for her ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas, who recently mentioned it was “interesting” that Gigi moved on so quickly, was not in attendance.
Actually, what was interesting were Gigi and Zayn’s robot outfits.
Gigi wore a plated bodysuit underneath the sheer gray fabric, which she said is a creation from American fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger.
The model paired her dress with a pair of “Venus” pumps from Stuart Weitzman and some machine-cut knuckle jewelry to complement her man’s robotic arms.

Yes, you read that right — Zayn showed up in a suit and a pair of robotic arms. Good thing it was a themed party.

The couple have made their rounds at casual appearances and posed for a gorgeous Vogue spread, but this is the first time that the two have stepped out on the red carpet — and they did not hold back.
The couple gave the paparazzi a lot of money shots as they cuddled, linked arms, and held hands for the cameras.
It’s your call as to whether you wear them with a normal ensemble or a robot costume.
