Here we are with the first look from this year’s Vanity Fair Oscar Afterparty. I decided to begin with something unusual but striking, hence why I chose Troye Sivan. Read further if you are curious.

For the famed party, Sivan wore a black full Diesel look from the Fall-Winter 2023 Ready-to-Wear collection, paired with a Mara Paris Hope Open ring in 925 Sterling Silver among others.

Even the logo shoes where part of the fit, all stemming from the look 58 on the runway.

Makeup artist Kirsten Sage Coleman did Troye‘s makeup for the occasion. It was minimal and avant-garde. After evening out his skin, she applied yellow eyeshadow on the inner corner of his eyes and she drew a tribal-like design on the bridge of his nose. The coolest touch for the look was the brown mascara that kept everything balanced and airy, without making it too heavy.

In June 2022, Troye was announced as YSL Beauty’s new U.S. Ambassador, so it came as no surprise that his MUA for the night used YSL Beauty products to paint his face.

Here they are, straight from both YSL Beauty and Coleman‘s Instagrams (slightly edited for clarity):

Hairstylist Aaron King styled and cut his hair in a short, messy, fresh out of the shower look. It made the most sense since this was an ensemble not intended to be taken too seriously. I think the cut was playful and not overboard, just like it needed to be.

Colorist Jenna Perry colored his hair in a style called “NYC Blonde“. A look inspired by New York women, whose hair is colored with a natural blonde, luminous shade, but not too bright. It’s a minimalistic look, achieved by using different tones of blonde, from the lightest to the darkest, in order to create a delicate and natural ombré effect.

The nails were kept natural, not to distract from the rest.

You are in for a treat when stylist Chris Horan has his hands behind a look. I thoroughly enjoy the variety of his clients who have a common denominator: not being afraid to dare. I would gladly replicate many of the looks he styled during his career, because they are never boring even if they entail the color black.

He is also unexpected, which makes it even more enjoyable for me whenever I know some of his usual clients attend an event. I’m always thrilled to know what he has in store.
