At just 19 years old, Billie Eilish is known to make the headlines. But, it’s not always for his music (even if his impeccable voice is worth a lot of chatter). Rather, it’s the artist’s fashion sense, especially her baggy clothes (complemented by neon green locks) that has been the talk of the party since she first appeared in the limelight at the age of. 13 years old with her hit “Ocean Eyes.” But, depending on the singer’s few past public appearances, her style could take an unexpected turn. Example: Billie Eilish’s retro outfit at the 2021 Met Gala, which is inspired by Barbie.
On Monday night, September 13 in New York City, the event co-chair made her first Met Gala appearance and caused a stir when she walked into the room wearing a dreamy Oscar de la Renta gown. “Doesn’t that speak for itself?” Eilish told E! in a red carpet interview. “This is the first thing I have ever done in this realm – I shiver and I tremble.” And, according to People, Eilish revealed to Keke Palmer at the event, “It’s about time for that, and I feel like I’ve grown so much in the last few years.” She adds: “I always wanted to do this. I was just scared and I didn’t feel comfortable in my skin and I felt like I finally did it.” Unsurprisingly, the agonizing fashion decision she made has certainly paid off as the world is in awe of her exquisite look.
It is no secret that the Happier than ever The singer seems almost unrecognizable for this Monday night’s star-studded event compared to past events, such as her loose lime green outfit for KIIS FM’s 2019 Jingle Ball. To match her bold green locks, she wore a MISBHV hoodie, Balenciaga chunky sneakers, and Lefthandla sweatshirts. And even before that, there’s a plethora of red carpet moments where she sticks to that same clean-lined vibe.
While Eilish’s has historically been recognized for its laid-back style aesthetic, it has recently become a style chameleon. In fact, her fashion pick for the 2021 Met Gala might not come as a huge shock if you take a look at her final sartorial moments. Just watch her British Vogue cover for May 2021 when Eilish caused an internet frenzy in the Alexander McQueen custom corset dress and even lingerie, which is very unexpected for the celebrity. On top of that, for his new album cover for Happier than ever in 2021, Eilish ditched her green hair and featured platinum blonde highlights.
According to her appearance for the Met Gala 2021, it’s time to say hello to the new era of Billie Eilish. Be prepared for more glamorous times to come.
