Zayn Malik appeared to have an unfortunate run-in with a car while making his way through a swarming crowd at Paris Fashion Week.
The former One Direction singer — who was attending Kenzo’s Fall/Winter 2024-2025 menswear show, which can be viewed in full here — was filmed and photographed being escorted through a large gathering of people on Friday (Jan. 19). Fans noticed in one clip posted on social media that as Zayn walked alongside bodyguards, it appeared that his foot possibly got caught by a car driving by.
“Whoa, be careful! Be careful!” someone can be heard saying in the clip circulating online. Zayn only momentarily paused, then kept on walking.
During the early hours of Saturday, Zayn checked in with fans and shared a few new photos from Paris on Instagram.
“@kenzo @nigo Thanks for a great show!” he wrote, adding: “My foot is fine !! Thanks to my incredibly well made shoes.”
Zayn ended his comment with a crying-laughing emoji and a thumbs up.
In a three-picture gallery, Zayn offered a side-profile selfie, a snapshot from inside the Kenzo show and a closeup of his right foot, the foot in question.
Zayn’s white Kenzo sneaker wasn’t as pristine as it probably was at the start of the night. The right side of the shoe was covered in dark skid marks. Fortunately, his footwear apparently protected him from injury.
The Kenzo show took place at France’s Bibliothèque Nationale Richelieu Friday night. Zayn was also spotted interacting kindly with fans, posing for several selfies with them.
The solo star recently joined a remake of “Tu Hai Kahan,” the 2023 hit from Pakistani trio AUR. The song was re-released on Friday (Jan. 12) and featured additional Urdu-language vocals from Zayn on the chorus.
The release came from U.S.-based D36 & Sony Music Entertainment, Middle East. It’s Zayn’s first new music since last summer’s “Love Like This.”
