We’re happier than ever, because we’re finally getting to see what Billie Eilish is wearing to her first-ever Met Gala.
The seven-time Grammy winner looks more like Marilyn Monroe than ever before, wearing a peachy cotton candy gown with a flowing train by Oscar de la Renta. Naturally, her blonde curls played into her bombshell style homage on Monday, Sept. 13.
Eilish told Vogue she was inspired by the Holiday Barbie gowns when choosing her Met look, saying, “It was my favorite thing in the world. I would ask for them for Christmas every single year.” The designers added they were inspired by Grace Kelly and Marilyn Monroe as well.
“It just was time. It was time for this and I feel like I’ve grown so much in the last few years and my confidence,” the singer shared.
Channeling vintage glamour, Eilish walked the carpet alongside an entourage of four people that carried and arranged her long train.
She’s an official co-chair of the 2021 Met Gala, along with Oscar darling Timothée Chalamet, tennis champ Naomi Osaka and poet Amanda Gorman. The event caps off a big weekend: Just one day ago, Eilish took home the 2021 VMA for Video for Good and Best Latin.
Eilish, 19, first became a fashion icon for her neon green hair and baggy designer ensembles, complete with bucket hats and bedazzled veils.
