For Kim Kardashian it took baring all with a champagne glass balanced on her ginormous behind to finally break the Internet.
But for Zayn Malik, it seems all that’s required is the spurting of a bit of facial hair.
Despite his ongoing personal struggles, the former One Direction band member made an appearance at Tom Ford’s New York Fashion Week party last night to support his girlfriend of almost six months Gigi Hadid.
But while the singer’s perfectly cut double-breasted suit and black polo combo ensured he was looking very dapper on the night, it’s his blossoming beard which really sent his fans into overdrive.
As usual Twitter has become the main outlet for Zayn’s fans’ frenzy, so naturally we’ve compiled some of the best reactions to Zayn's beard for your enjoyment. Check them out below:
