Zayn Malik really took the Met Gala's technology infused fashion dress code to heart. In fact, he took it so seriously the internet couldn't help but try to figure out who the former One Direction star was channeling. The Terminator? Bicentennial Man? Forrest Gump? Half-robot and half-man, Zayn, of course, pulled it off along side his supermodel girlfriend Gigi Hadid.
One Twitter user even predicted is futuristic look to some degree.

For the first time in my life, I'm at a loss for words. But one comes to mind. No. Just, no.
