Sebastian Mader photographs British singer Zayn Malik for a retro-inspired cover for the July 2018 issue of GQ USA. In the cover story named ‘’How Do You Explain Zayn?’’, stylist Simon Rasmussen embraces Fall/Winter looks with brands such as Louis Vuitton and Dolce & Gabbana.
In the interview, the wildly enigmatic singer also let down his guard, briefly, in talking to writer Carrie Battan about his relationship with Gigi Hadid, the self-indulgence of being a ‘’star’’, and his crafty use of the paparazzi for his own devices.
