Marc Gordon - August 28, 2019

Who on this planet does not who Billie Eilish is? No one, that’s right. The 17 year old has been pretty much everywhere since she released her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, back in March. On August 19th, she became the first artist born this century to get to number one on the Billboard Hot 100.

She’s also a style icon. She takes to her Instagram account to pose in her fun, wacky, and totally Billie style. Seriously, take a look at her! She’s a total legend.

Eilish has spoken out before about her style, explaining why she prefers to wear clothes that are baggy. As she said, most of her stuff is “800 sizes bigger” than she is. In an interview with Vogue Australia in June, Eilish said her clothing gives her the opportunity to keep part of herself a “mystery” from the public.

 

“It kind of gives nobody the opportunity to judge what your body looks like,” she said. “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.”

Eilish said in an advert for Calvin Klein, “Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath, you know? Nobody can be like, ‘She’s slim-thick’, ‘She’s not slim-thick’, ‘She’s got a flat ass’, ‘She got a fat ass’. Nobody can say any of that because they don’t know.”

 

During a conversation with Pharrell Williams for the September Issue of V magazine, Eilish explained her comments on the subject as a lot of people had misconstrued them. She explained that she never intended her personal style to become part of a conversation about feminism or women expressing their femininity.

“It’s more, just, I wear what I want to wear,” she said. “But of course, everyone sees it as, ‘She’s saying no to being sexualized’ and ‘She’s saying no to being the stereotypical female’.”

 

Eilish continued to say she supports people feeling comfortable enough in their own body “to show just whatever they want”. “I don’t like that there’s this weird new world of supporting me by shaming people that [may not] want to [dress like me],” she concluded.
