Yes, the Oscars are technically about the creme de la creme of the entertainment industry receiving their flowers — or, sometimes, their snubs. But it can also be about other things, like behind-the-scenes drama with high-profile actors. For me, however, it’s mostly about fashion. Lupita Nyong’o, Prada, 2014! Saoirse Ronan, Calvin Klein, 2018! And just like the movies themselves, the real style is in the eye of the beholder. A sadly misguided TikTok user actually called out Billie Eilish for “bad” Oscar fashion after last week’s ceremony, and the Bond singer had a gorgeous, over-the-top response to the criticism.
Officially, the 20-year-old has accepted her co-win for Best Original Song in no time to die at the 94th Academy Awards in a baggy top and pants. But it’s her all-black, ruffled Gucci dress just for the red carpet that’s in question. The commentator called Billie Eilish the “worst dressed” present because of it and that he “had had enough of his shit”. Hilarious, the Grammy, Golden Globe and now Academy Award winner reacted as a duo, while flipping the bird and taking what looks like a number two off her toilet. Watch the TikTok video here:

Pissing off social media haters isn’t exactly the first time Billie Eilish has kept it real. Like that time in the Oscars media room when she dunked a reporter for calling her a former emo teenager. Or that time she called Daniel Craig, James Bond himself, a “DILF”? Perfection.
At this point, however, the candid star is used to there being a ton of guesswork about her look, which changes frequently these days. Initially, the singer was well known for her standard baggy streetwear cuts back when she came on, but when she donned a platinum pin-up aesthetic in 2021 for Vogue, a shockwave of comments erupted. Interestingly, she asked in that same cover why men feel the need to differentiate women’s fashion choices, saying that women want to wear what they “feel good” in and “don’t want you jumping in it.” “.
The 2022 Oscars themselves had a much bigger mistake than Billie Eilish’s perceived ugly outfit anyway, with the now infamous Will Smith slapping incident. Everyone seems to have an opinion on that too. Jim Carrey claimed to be “disgusted” by it. Zoe Kravitz called it an assault on Instagram. One might be curious to hear Eilish’s take on the matter, given how quick she is to defend herself.
Nevertheless, the overview for the no time to die singer is that she’s next for seven Grammy nominations tonight on CBS at 8 p.m. EST as part of the 2022 TV program. And to be sure, Billie Eilish will probably wear what she wants while accepting another major honor. .
