Gigi Hadid‘s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition photoshoot has something for everyone, Zayn Malik included. He’s checked out his girlfriend’s body (of work) and has declared one suit in particular his favorite.

Hadid dished to PeopleNow about the shoot, and said her musician beau is partial to the “white one” — an underboob-heavy maillot worn with a Lana Jewelry bodychain.

This update comes at the same time that
Sports Illustrated
released a steamy behind-the-scenes video of her shoot for the issue, which is on stands now.

Hadid also makes a strong case for giving that impulse-buy body chain another chance and proves that, despite having been featured in the Swimsuit Edition just twice before, she’s already mastered being both sexy and playful in the sandy shoots.

But she admits to PeopleNow that she wasn’t always such a pro in the surf and on subsequent red carpets. “I had the worst hair and makeup I’ve ever seen in my life on that red carpet,” she says of the debut red carpet for her rookie swimsuit issue year. “I looked so bad!”
