Halsey appears on Cosmopolitan Magazine’s October 2019 cover, flaunting some skin in a sequined top and pants by Sally LaPointe with Kate Spade earrings. For the accompanying shots photographed by Peggy Sirota, Halsey embraces whimsical and colorful ensembles in labels such as Versace, Gucci and DSquared2.
