After a long hiatus in his homeland of Melbourne, Australia during the early pandemic, Troye Sivan has made an incredible return to the red carpet overnight. Stepping out at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn for the 2021 MTV VMAs, the pop star marked his reentry into limelight in a cropped Fendi suit. If colour-blocking was the unspoken trend of the evening, chiseled-cut abs (per Avril Lavigne, Megan Fox and now Sivan) is another.

Marc Sebastian, a long-time stylist to Sivan pulled a Fendi Spring/Summer 2022 cropped suit for the “YOUTH” singer. The glaring midriff was paired with long crew socks and black patent oxford shoes. Makeup was done by James Kaliardos – the visionary behind the recent Rodarte New York Fashion Week runway. Hair was by Charlie Le Mindu.

Last week Sivan released his very first solo single for 2021, “Angel Baby”.

“‘Angel Baby’ is my crack at an adoring, doting, love struck, mega pop, gay, power ballad. I thought we needed a few more of those,” he explained (per Just Jared).

At New York Fashion Week this month, Sivan made an appearance at the Thom Browne runway presentation. While the singer is state side, it could mean that we’ll see him at the Met Gala on September 13. After all, the annual event is promising a much younger guest list than years gone by.

The 26-year-old last attended the lavish soirée in 2018 for the Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination Costume Institute Gala in a red Valentino ensemble. He was photographed alongside creative director is Pierpaolo Piccioli.
