Co-chair Billie Eilish stepped out at her first Met Gala, embodying the night’s American Fashion Theme. Eilish wore a dramatic nude princess dress by Oscar de la Renta. Her hair was styled in a Marilyn Monroe-esque bob, and she wore Cartier jewelry.
The New York Times reported that Eilish got Oscar de la Renta to agree, as a condition of wearing their dress to the Met Gala, that they would stop using fur in their designs.
Eilish spoke to British Vogue earlier this year about growing up in the public eye and who she is now in this moment. “People always say, ‘How would your younger self feel about you now?’” she started. “And that’s a good thing to think about in some cases, but I also think you shouldn’t try to be a person that your old self would like, and you shouldn’t try to be a person that your future self is going to be. You should be exactly who you feel like you are and want to be in that moment, otherwise you’re going to go insane.”
Eilish also discussed her style and the response she anticipated she’d get for wearing corsets in her British Vogue shoot. “‘If you’re about body positivity, why would you wear a corset? Why wouldn’t you show your actual body?’” she said of how she expected people to react.
“My thing is that I can do whatever I want,” she explained, noting confidence is her only gospel, but that intent has been spun into “a lot of weird miscommunications.”
“It’s all about what makes you feel good,” she said. “If you want to get surgery, go get surgery. If you want to wear a dress that somebody thinks that you look too big wearing, f*ck it—if you feel like you look good, you look good.”
