The Changing Face Of Zayn Malik: From Shy X Factor Hopeful To Brooding Hunk

Since auditioning for The X Factor back in 2010, One Direction’s Zayn Malik has become one of the most desired males in the world of pop with over 12.1m followers on Twitter.

Looking back at the nervous 17-year-old who auditioned for Simon Cowell and co singing Mario’s ‘Let me Love You’, it’s hard to believe that the 1D hunk was once that normal lad from Yorkshire.

The one baby-faced singer has blossomed into a rather attractive man in front of our very eyes. With his ever multiplying tattoos, killer style, and chiselled cheekbones, Mr Malik has undergone quite a transformation.

Despite his “bad boy” look, Zayn, now 21, is one of the more…ahem “settled” 1D members. He announced his engagement to Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards in August of last year.
