Zayn Malik’s Robot Arms At The 2016 Met Gala Had Directioners Losing Their Minds

One thing is for sure for one couple who walked the red carpet tonight. Zayn Malik at the 2016 Met Gala red carpet had Directioners losing their mind. Malik wore not one, but two entire robot arms. As one does. Oh, and let's not forget the fact that he's attending with model/girlfriend Gigi Hadid in what is currently their first red carpet appearance together. No big deal at all.

And if you're at all wondering why your favorite Pillow Talker is attending a high end red carpet event encumbered with shoulder-to wrist metal, it's because this year's Met Gala theme is "Manus x Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology," and is inspiring super creative, futuristic looks all across the board.

While the Gala's annual costumes are often associated with what the ladies end up wearing —what with designer gowns galore —Zayn is proving that there's no reason for the guys to get left behind when it comes to bringing their fashion A-games and unique take on the theme. And what better way to future-ize a classic tux than with, well, robot arms? Let's just hope they're more comfortable than they look.

And meanwhile, just in case you're wondering, Hadid is also looking pretty amazing in a silver dress with metallic bust and metal finger ornaments (presumably to match Zayn's robo arms).
