Gigi Hadid is all smiles amid reports of new romance with Zayn Malik

When Gigi Hadid stepped out in London on Monday (Nov. 30), the model was smiling from ear to ear. Having recently enjoyed a series of dates with Zayn Malik, former member of One Direction, it seems the 20-year-old model might just be smitten.

Making the trip solo, Gigi looked effortlessly cool and relaxed. The long-haul flight from her hometown, Los Angeles, didn't seem to have taken a toll on her, nor did her recent partying with Zayn over the weekend.

Instead, her natural beauty and confidence shone through as she left the airport.

Keeping fashion at the forefront of her mind, Gigi's casual chic ensemble included a cozy grey sweater with a turtleneck and fringe detailing, dark jeans and thigh-high suede boots. A pair of oversized black sunglasses topped off the look.

The California girl was recently pictured leaving a club in Los Angeles with Zayn in the early hours of Sunday morning (Nov. 29). While the "Kiss You" singer has been a rumoured love interest for weeks, the pair have only just confirmed their romance as they left club hand-in-hand.

Gigi, who split from Joe Jonas in early November, again showed off her style credentials and her enviable Victoria's Secret body in a black crop top and ripped jeans, and a black leather jacket. Zayn, 22, co-ordinated in an all-black ensemble and trousers of a similar style.

The California girl and Zayn Malik have been "hanging out" in the past few weeks.

The pair were first linked in early November, shortly after Gigi and Joe split after five months of dating. Their breakup wasn't "dramatic," a source told People, but "it was just hard to make it work with their schedules."

Joe, 26, has since unfollowed his ex-girlfriend on social media, and also deleted a photo he had with Zayn on Twitter. The picture was taken last June and captioned "#SQUAD".

While it's still early days, Gigi and Zayn look to be enjoying each other's company. The English singer couldn't hide his affection for Gigi at Justin Bieber's party earlier this month.

A source told Us Weekly, "He thinks she's so hot. He takes interest in her shoots and videos . He thinks she's sweet, too. She talks about her mom a lot and her family, and he likes that. She drinks beers with the guys, she's cool and funny."
