You can shiver our timbers any time you like Zayn
Zayn Malik might have been separated from the rest of One Direction for New Year's Eve this year, but it looks like he had a pretty good time and clearly couldn't resist the opportunity to dress up and head down to a Birthday party for girlfriend Perrie Edwards' brother instead.
Zayn and Pezza seem to have avoided any arguments about who has to be the bum end of the pantomime horse by straying from the matching couples outfit theme completely.
Instead Perrie took a leaf out of Louis Tomlinson's book (and probably borrowed the costume lurking at the back of his wardrobe) to turn up as Catwoman, whereas Zayn opted for the rugged and manly look in full Jack Sparrow pirate gear.
Celebrating with Perrie's brother, they pair posed for some snaps and we have to say it looks like the Little Mix singer was getting pretty into character.
With a popstar guestlist we'd imagine that there was probably some karaoke too, with Perrie's bro tweeting the next morning and saying: "Happy new year!!!! @zaynmalik our harmonies area magical!! Hahaha cya tomorrow!" [sic]
Despite a night of partying, Zayn was able to drag himself out of bed long enough to send a pretty emotional tweet thanking Directioners for all their support in 2012. That or he just hadn't been to bed yet.
"We wouldn't be where we are now without you all! So Happy 2013! Love you all," he tweeted.
What do you think of their outfits then? We quite like the stubbly pirate look - fingers crossed it gets whipped out again on tour...
