Billie Eilish is no stranger to body image issues. Just like many people around the world who are perhaps overly critical of their bodies, the singer has also been through her struggles before accepting and kissing.
The 19-year-old revealed that she once wore dresses every day, but has given up on the habit due to body image issues. She was quoted as recounting Vogue in an interview she loved wearing dresses “daily” as a child, but stopped because “body image … tore that shit apart”.
The All i wanted The singer further said that the “big dresses” were her favorite, but the appearance of her body made her lose confidence, so she stopped wearing them.
The reveal came as Eilish walked the 2021 Met Gala red carpet in an Oscar de la Renta dress, which was essentially an ode to Marilyn Monroe.
This year’s theme was “In America: A Fashion Lexicon,” and the singer’s Monroe-inspired tulle dress, which the latter had worn to attend the Oscars in 1951, was quite a sight!
British Vogue Style Director Dena Giannini, who styled the star for the event, said: “[Billie had] always dreamed of wearing a real ball gown – especially something corseted, thanks to her love for Barbies growing up – but she figured it could be in an acid green colourway or something. After her British Vogue blanket, however, his style began to evolve. After reviewing about a million images together, she and I decided it had to be Oscar de la Renta for the Met Gala. I called [creative directors] Laura [Kim] and Fernando [Garcia], and in 10 minutes, we had agreed to collaborate together.
According to a Independent report, in a short film detailing the process of creating Eilish’s Met Gala Ball Gown, she said, “Big dresses were my favorite as a kid. I had so many dresses that I would wear one dress every day. It was really body image that tore this shit apart. [It’s] why I think I dress the way I have for years.
