Once Billie Eilish stepped into her confidence, and natural undeniable sexy, she became much more of a force to already be reckoned with. The Superstar is one of the most undeniable new talents with her edge, sultry and calming voice, and mixed style.
Dating back to her re-debut on the cover of British Vogue where the star bared all in new reformed images completely owning her sex appeal. In the spread, she embraced an era in which she seemingly belongs in, the early Hollywood vintage times. Keeping the current consistent, she debuted at the MET Gala channeling the most notorious name in classic Hollywood, Marilyn Monroe. Get the camera frenzy started, Eilish stepped on the Carpet in a blush colored gown flowing gown by Oscar De La Renta strikingly gorgeous resembling a predecessor who got the people talking just as she does.
“Billie had planned to go to the Met Gala for the first time before the pandemic happened,” shares British Vogue’s style director Dena Giannini. “She had always dreamed of wearing a proper ballgown—particularly something corseted, thanks to her love of Barbies growing up—but she thought that it might be in an acid-green colorway or something along those lines. After her British Vogue cover, though, her style began to evolve. After reviewing about a million images together, she and I decided that it had to be Oscar de la Renta for the Met Gala. I called [creative directors] Laura [Kim] and Fernando [Garcia], and within 10 minutes, we’d agreed to collaborate together.”
The collaboration was a natural marriage as the phone call resulted in one of the most promising moments in MET history. The piece they created was not only somewhat comfortable as the gown was light as air – yet still holding the maximized volume and delicacy, but was sustainable as well. “I find it shocking that wearing fur isn’t completely outlawed at this point in 2021,” Eilish said. “I am so beyond thrilled that Fernando and Laura and the rest of the Oscar De La Renta team heard me on this issue, and have made a change that not only makes an impact for the greater good for animals but also for our planet and environment too. I’m honored to have been a catalyst and to have been heard on this matter. I urge all designers to do the same.”
