When the teaser for Zayn's 'It's You' video was first released we were absolutely convinced that the tall, blonde girl in the clip was Gigi Hadid. As it turns out, the person in the long white dress was actually Nicola Peltz - an actress who also happens to be good friends with Gigi.

Speaking about how she got the part of starring in Zayn's video, Nicole told Teen Vogue that despite her connection with Gigi, she'd never actually been introduced to Zayn before she was offered a role in his vid:


"I loved the whole concept of it [the video], that it was black and white and had old Hollywood vibes. I was excited to meet Zayn. I've never met him before and I'm really close with his girlfriend, Gigi"

Explaining that Gigi didn't even know she'd been offered the part until Nicola told her about, she continued: "I called her when I got the offer, and she was like, 'Oh my god.' She really wanted me to do it. I mean, I love her so much and I'm really close with her, but yeah, she was excited for me. She's the best."

Oh, and as for the confusion after the teaser clip dropped about who the mysterious girl was, Nicola was pretty happy that the internet assumed she was Gigi: "They were like, 'Oh, everyone thinks it's Gigi!' Which, by the way, I'm beyond flattered, she's a goddess."

True.
