Fashion’s biggest night is finally here, and it wouldn’t be the 2022 Met Gala without an appearance by Billie Eilish. The 20-year-old singer has cemented her place as a fashion icon in her recent years of fame.
Billie Eilish keeps us in suspense when it comes to red carpets and this May 2nd she showed up and appeared in a corseted dress, which is definitely a different side of her. On top of it, she sported a mint green corset with a gorgeous square neckline, adorned with a giant purple flower. A puffy cream satin skirt gave it that touch of gold glam we were going for, while green lace sleeves (with thumbholes) and a bow choker gave it almost a modern e-girl element.
The outfit was designed by Gucci, with whom Eilish often works, and all the fabrics are recycled, so the look is both stunning and sustainable. Beauty-wise, she kept her makeup pretty natural, with just a stroke of eyeliner, and styled her hair into a period-appropriate updo, showing off those amazing bangs.
Billie Eilish made her first appearance at the 2021 MET Gala, where she turned heads dressed as a modern-day Marilyn Monroe. She ditched her usual oversized silhouette of hers for an Oscar De La Renta gown with a peach corset. Her hair, which was platinum at the time, was styled in a glamorous straight cut in the style of Old Hollywood.
Eilish said the inspiration was ‘Holiday Barbie,’ and we definitely see the inspiration: ‘It was just the time,’ she revealed during the Met Gala Livestream. ‘It was time for this, and I feel like I’ve grown so much in the last few years… I was scared and didn’t feel comfortable in my skin, and I feel like I finally [am]. It was time.
As you can see from her look this year, she still feels that same confidence and we couldn’t agree more.
