Why Everyone Has Always Been Obsessed With Billie Eilish’s Fashion

Published

From her fashion to her music, Billie Eilish is constantly evolving. Her newest album, “Hit Me Hard And Soft,” comes out Friday, telling Rolling Stone in a recent interview: “I feel like this album is me… It’s not a character.”

What will be interesting to see is how Eilish will dress for this new era of music. Coming off the success of “Barbie” and her Oscar-winning song from the soundtrack, “What Was I Made For,” singer stayed on theme when it came to her red carpet looks.

Eilish could be seen onstage at this year’s Grammys, for instance, wearing an outfit inspired by the 1965 limited-edition Poodle Parade Barbie, complete with pink headscarf and Manolo Blahnik heels. She still kept her signature style when taking on the Barbiecore-trend, however. Like at the “Barbie” Los Angeles premiere, she wore an oversized, pink pinstripe button-down by Gucci, black Raf Simons shorts, a pink tie and Erl skate sneakers.

Along with her powerful lyrics, visuals and voice, Eilish has captivated the world with her unique style. Her clothes and her body have faced immense criticism from the moment she stepped out onto the music scene. Her go-to look, so to speak, has notably been baggy tees, sweatshirts, long shorts and skateboard-inspired sneakers. It was a choice on her end make oversized pieces her signature in order to force people to not focus on her body.

Yet, the world and anti-feminist rhetoric is obsessed with Eilish’s sartorial choices — no matter what she wears. Part of the criticism could be that despite outside noise and what is “expected” of women in pop music, her looks continue to push the envelope and she hasn’t wavered on her authenticity.

She told Vogue Australia in 2019: “It gives nobody the opportunity to judge what your body looks like. I don’t want to give anyone the excuse of judging… I want layers and layers and layers and I want to be mysterious. You don’t know what’s underneath and you don’t know what’s on top.”

Then in 2023, Eilish fired back against her critics after she wore an unexpected black lace corseted gown custom-made by Simone Rocha — paired with sky-high platform heels — to the Met gala.

“I spent the first 5 years of my career getting absolutely obliterated by you fools for being boy-ish and dressing how I did & constantly being told I’d be hotter if I acted like a woman,” Eilish posted on Instagram. “And now when I feel comfortable enough to wear anything remotely feminine or fitting, I changed and am a sellout… I can be both…Let women exist!”

Since then, Eilish has dressed in various outfits that run the gamut, from her preppy Chanel Oscars look complete with Mary Janes and socks to her eS skate shoes and plaid outfit she wore courtside to the Knicks game on Tuesday. She’s never been one note and that is what makes the star’s style so exciting.
