Stromae, the Belgian singer is starring the cover of NUMERO HOMME, a important French fashion magazine, phographed by Pierre & Gilles.

With its neo-dandy look straight out of a comic book, Stromae seemed predestined for the artistic universe of Pierre et Gilles. On the cover of the male version of the monthly magazine NUMERO, the singer strikes a pose.
The singer carries with him a shirt pattern, as usual. If you looks in details of the jacket, you can see some black and white pictures of the Cape Verdean singer Cesaria Evora., undoubtedly refering to his last single, Cesaria Ave, a tribute to the “barefoot diva” he greatly admired.
