Billie Eilish completely transformed her style for British Vogue’s June 2021 cover.
She wore custom Gucci for the magazine, including corsets, a latex skirt, and matching gloves.
On Instagram, the 19-year-old musician said she “loved” the pictures featured in the article.
For the magazine photoshoot, Eilish, who is now blonde, wore a series of Gucci corsets, latex skirts, and other form-fitting outfits that are a drastic departure from her usual baggy ensembles. She was photographed for the magazine by Craig McDean.
“For #BritishVogue’s June issue, cover star @BillieEilish wanted nothing short of a transformation,” the publication wrote on Instagram.
“Billie collaborated closely with the Vogue team on her fashion fantasy, led by style director Dena Giannini,” British Vogue wrote. “The result? Billie Eilish as we’ve never seen her before – but as always with Billie, it is the story behind the transformation that is key.”
The magazine hits newsstands on May 7, though Eilish’s full interview has been published on British Vogue’s website.
“i love these pictures and i loved doing this shoot,” Eilish wrote on Instagram. “do whatever you want whenever you want. f— everything else.”
During her discussion with Laura Snapes for the magazine feature, Eilish said her blonde hair makes her feel “more like a woman, somehow.” She also said that while she was intrigued by the design of corsets, she “hates” her stomach and was curious about how restrictive they can be – which she said made her feel “shallow.”
Still, she stood by her belief that fashion and beauty should be “all about what makes you feel good.”
“If you want to get surgery, go get surgery,” she said. “If you want to wear a dress that somebody thinks that you look too big wearing, f— it – if you feel like you look good, you look good.”
“Suddenly you’re a hypocrite if you want to show your skin, and you’re easy and you’re a slut and you’re a whore,” the 19-year-old continued. “If I am, then I’m proud. Me and all the girls are hoes, and f— it, y’know? Let’s turn it around and be empowered in that. Showing your body and showing your skin – or not – should not take any respect away from you.”
In the past, Eilish has said that making baggy clothes her signature style wasn’t necessarily a conscious decision – it was something she did because she “hated” her body.
In May 2020, Eilish even “called out body-shamers during an interlude at her Miami concert,” as Insider’s Claudia Willen reported, while playing a video of herself stripping down to a bra.
In the video, Eilish is heard saying: “Some people hate what I wear, some people praise it. Some people use it to shame others, some people use it to shame me.”
“If I wear what is comfortable, I am not a woman,” she continued in the voiceover. “If I shed the layers, I’m a s—. Though you’ve never seen my body, you still judge it, and judge me for it. Why?”
