Gigi Hadid is keeping her head up!

In the wake of her split from Zayn Malik after more than two years of dating, the 22-year-old model was spotted out and about in New York City and appeared cheerful.

Hadid smiled for cameras as she hit the city streets in a stylish ensemble that included plaid bell-bottom slacks, a maroon turtleneck sweater and matching Colovos jacket, black patent leather boots and small sunglasses.  

This is one of the first times Hadid has been seen since her breakup, though she has remained active on social media. On Wednesday, she posted video to her Instagram Story of desserts from Mister Krisp as well as some colorful balloons she received. "OMG, best surprise ever," she captioned the video.


Meanwhile, Malik appears to have jetted off to sunnier weather, according to his Instagram, and is reportedly in Miami, Florida. 


Earlier this week, both Malik and Hadid confirmed their split by releasing statements on Twitter. 

"Breakup statements often seem impersonal because there is really no way to put into words what two people experience together over a few years," she explained. "Not only in the relationship, but in life in general. I'm forever grateful for the love, time and life lessons that Z and I shared."

Hadid added, "I want nothing but the best for him and will continue to support him as a friend that I have immense respect and love for. As for the future, whatever's meant to be, will always be."

Just minutes prior, Malik shared his statement on the breakup. 

"Gigi and I had an incredibly meaningful, loving and fun relationship, and I have a huge amount of respect and adoration for Gigi as a woman and friend," the 25-year-old "Pillowtalk" singer tweeted. "She has such an incredible soul."

"I'm grateful to all of our fans for respecting this difficult decision and our privacy at this time," he continued. "We wish this news could have come from us first. We love you all."

The pair first started dating in November 2015, and were not shy about their relationship. They even covered the August 2017 issue of Vogue together.
