Troye Sivan’s Australian tour has found the singer in full chameleon mode. With the help of stylist Marc Sebastian Faiella, Sivan has transformed into numerous era-specific celebrities, including Pamela Anderson on the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards red carpet via a baby pink marabou top hat and a waist-snatching corset. He’s even evoked more general concepts too, like when he dressed up as an angel (halo included) for a heaven and hell-themed show in Adelaide, or an opulence-inspired look for his date in Brisbane. And just in case you forgot it’s 2019, there was a yeehaw-themed outfit, too.
Sivan clearly saved his best transformation for last, though: the Australian pop star went full Ziggy Stardust for the last stop on his Bloom tour in Melbourne. Sivan proclaimed that “POP!” was the category for this one, for which he channeled a very specific David Bowie look: the form-fitting red jumpsuit, blue blouse, black block-toed patent leather heels, and eyepatch that Sivan donned are an exact replica of the outfit that Bowie wore for his 1974 kaleidoscopic performance of “Rebel Rebel” on Dutch TV show TopPop. Faiella even revealed on Instagram that it was the first time he put his fashion design degree to use in years to craft the pants. Although Sivan stopped short at wearing a red wig cut in the style of Bowie’s iconic mullet, there’s no question that he still nailed it.
