Billie Eilish’s origins
We first heard about Billie Eilish in 2017, when the world saw her mini-album “Don’t Smile at Me” with hits such as “Oceans Eyes” and “idontwannabeyouanymore”. Behind the songs full of pain, despair and unrequited love there was a sad, yet dark image of a star. Platinum, long hair, voluminous clothes and comfortable sneakers have become Eilish’s trademark.

Teenagers from all over the world are crazy about the less than 16-year-old girl from Los Angeles. The singer most often wore hooded sweatshirts, joggers with decorative chains, quilted jackets or vests, as well as beanies. When it comes to makeup, Billie focused on make-up, no make-up, and heavily emphasized eyebrows. For special occasions, the artist eagerly chose clothes and accessories from famous designers. At the “Glamor Women of the Year Awards” in 2017, the celebrity presented herself in super-fashionable fur flip-flops with covered fingers from the Gucci fashion house collection. In addition, the singer’s green total look created a set consisting of a shirt with an effective tie and trousers with straight, wide legs from the Craig Green collection.
Billie Eilish was very conscious about her role in show business from the beginning of her career. The artist has repeatedly emphasized that she does not want to show her body. In an interview with Australian Vogue in 2019, the star admitted:
What I like about dressing as if I am 800 sizes larger is that it gives no one an opportunity to judge what my body is like.
The fans did not know what her silhouette really looked like, thanks to which she was able to avoid possible criticism from heteros.

Billie Eilish’s green hair
After the premiere of his first studio album “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” the artist focused on a huge revolution in her appearance. Billie Eilish cut her black hair significantly by then. In addition, a surprising green color appeared at the root.

This look has long become the hallmark of the star. The singer still did not shy away from costumes from the greatest designers. Her most common choice was the Gucci fashion house. One of the artist’s iconic looks was her outfit at Grammy 2020, where Eilish presented herself in a black suit, decorated with the brand’s logos in a color matching the hairstyle. The whole was complemented by a green polka dot turtleneck and expressive earrings. The so-called logomania is one of the hottest trends of the past year, so the choice of the artist should come as no surprise.

The singer remained faithful to the loose typefaces. One of Billie’s hallmarks was also her long fingernails. The artist focused on an original manicure, which was often color-matched to the rest of her outfit.
In one of the interviews, Billie admitted that she willingly wears interesting and expensive jewelry. Rings often accompanied her during concerts, but they slipped off her fingers when making Fridays with fans. The artist, however, does not give up on the original earrings and necklaces, the number of which may be surprising for some. During his last tour, the star most often presented himself in high sneakers, basketball shorts and a classic, oversized T-shirt. Comfortable, and at the same time perfectly matching the star’s style, the outfit allowed her to jump, dance and even run during performances.
The photo that changed everything
In March, during one of the concerts in Miami, the artist presented the fans with a video entitled “Not my responsibility”, where he gets rid of his bulky clothes.
In it, the artist admitted that not showing her body was to protect her from being judged by other people. However, this did not happen. Although no one knew what her body actually looked like, she was still being assessed.
When I wear comfortable loose fitting clothes, I’m not feminine, and when I put on something else, I’m a whore. Even though you have never seen my body, you still judge me because of it. Why do we judge someone by their size? It decides who he is and how much he is worth. If I am wearing more or less clothes, what makes me? What does that even mean? Should my worth be based only on what others think of me? Doesn’t she depend on me?
– the star wondered on the recording. At the end of 2020, the paparazzi caught Eilish in a surprising (for her) outfit. The artist strolled the streets of Los Angeles in a tight-fitting top and shorts from the Essential collection. The celebrity chose Yezzy flip-flops and long Gucci socks for them.
For the first time the fans had an opportunity to see what her silhouette looks like, which was met with considerable media interest from all over the world. The celebrity did not comment on these photos for a long time, but with the advent of 2021, the star decided to change its characteristic image. After the Grammy Awards 2021, Billie Eilish surprised fans with a photo on Instagram, where she presented her new hairstyle to the observers. This time the artist opted for classic, blonde hair.
The star also announced her new album “Happier Than Ever” shortly thereafter. In May, the artist appeared in underwear only on the cover of British Vogue. A very brave, sexy and feminine session caused quite a stir around the star.
The world also saw her next singles. In the music video for the song “Lost Cause”, the artist presents herself, inter alia, in fitted bike shorts (Skims) and a sweatshirt, as well as a satin nightgown (La Perla).
During the Met Gala 2021, the star on the red carpet appeared in a spectacular dress from Oscar de la Renta. The look inspired by Marylin Monroe was not only spectacular, but also had a huge impact on the further work of the fashion house. The artist, through her social media, revealed that she agreed to create an outfit from this iconic American designer, provided that she would completely abandon the use of natural fur in her collections. The company’s representatives agreed to the star’s proposal. No wonder, after all, Billie Eilish is currently one of the most popular artists who is undergoing a huge metamorphosis in front of the world eyes. The fact that she appeared in a very feminine outfit on the red carpet was a huge event in itself, which is why many designers dreamed of having their part in it.

Soon after this event, the Times magazine published a list of the 100 most influential people in 2021. Billie Eilish is also on the list, alongside Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. She was appreciated not only for the influence she has on the young generation, but also for her independence, style and her own opinion, which she is not afraid to express.
It has been known for a long time that Billie eagerly follows the hottest trends, appreciating convenience at the same time. Her favorite footwear is high Jordan. That is why on September 27 her proprietary models from the Billie Eilish x Air Jordan 1 KO line will appear. The shoes are supposed to cost around $ 180, or around 710 zlotys. The artist who cares about the environment emphasized that the models she created are 100% vegan, and 20% of the material they are made of comes from recycling. First, the sneakers will be available for sale on Eilish’s official website, and on September 30, they will be available through the Nike SKNRS app.
