Zayn Malik wore plate armour sleeves as he escorted his model girlfriend Gigi Hadid at the Met Gala in New York on Monday.

The former One Direction star and his Victoria's Secret date had gone all out for their red carpet debut as a couple, wearing matching metallic outfits.

The 23-year-old singer looked every inch the young Sir Lancelot with his armoured sleeves, suit jacket, trousers and shiny leather shoes.

And Hagid also kept to the futuristic theme with a custom Tommy Hilfiger outfit made up of a sequin body and sheer skirt.

The couple's glamorous outing comes hot on the heels of the pair putting on an amorous display in Hollywood last week.

Zayn was clearly the guest at the top of Hadid's list as she celebrated her 21st birthday with a star-studded bash last Thursday.
