I Didn’t Know What Plaid Was Until I Saw This Picture Of Zayn

He is the true supermodel half of Zigi

Since leaving One Direction, Zayn has launched a solo career and a mission to become a FASHION ICON.

Under his belt, he's got a Giueseppe Zanotti shoe, a Versace ad campaign, and now ... a Sunday Times Style cover.

I truly did not understand how beautiful plaid can be until I saw this picture.

The spread in the British magazine features him modeling a variety of looks.

Move over, Gigi and Kendall, there's a new supermodel in town.
