Promoting his new album, Troye Sivan graces the pages of GQ. Photographer Jason Kim captures the music artist for the magazine's July 2018 issue. Not one to play it shy when it comes to style, Sivan sports the latest designer looks. Kelly Mccabe styles the singer in fashions from brands like Saint Laurent and Valentino.
