Zayn Malik’s First Appearance Since Exiting 1D, Shows Off New Look and Date!
Zayn Malik made his first official public appearance since quitting One Direction in March. He was seen at the Asian Awards in London on April 17, sporting a new 'do, and with a date… his mom!
The singer suited up and walked down the red carpet with a brand new buzz cut and nose ring, arm-in-arm with his mother Trisha. Shedding his long locks, the 22-year-old looked smart in a navy suit and suede shoes, while Mama Malik looked gorgeous in a black beaded gown.

No word on why Malik's girlfriend Perrie Edwards didn't escort him to the London event, but he didn't seem to mind and was all smiles.
The last time Malik walked a red carpet was last year with fellow 1D bandmates Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Liam Payne at the 16th NRJ Music Awards in France.
