In case you missed it, Aussie hero Troye Sivan was one of many to walk in Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty fashion show.

As reported by Billboardin a new interview Sivan has shared what it meant to him to be able to walk in the show, particularly as he basically went from being in lockdown to strutting down the hottest runway in the world right now.

“I was in lockdown in Australia, like, three days ago, so to go from 0 to 100 like this is the coolest thing ever.”

He continued, “I got an email that apparently Rihanna wanted me to be in the show. It was insane. I love her, I think everyone knows that.”

Sivan also spoke on why being a part of the show was important to him as part of the bigger picture, that it was about being able to “celebrate humanity”.

“As someone who struggled with my sexuality when I was younger and body image later in life, it’s so, so important. It’s cool to get everyone together and feel really hot and feel really cool. Just to celebrate that humanity is really nice.”

On the actual experience itself of walking in a show, Sivan says that it can get you feeling a couple of different ways.

“It can make you panic and feel super vulnerable, or you can take power from that and feel really empowered,” he said.

“When I’m filming a music video, that’s when I feel most powerful. It’s just a fantasy to me still, that any of this is happening.”
