Billie Eilish’s New Vogue Poster
Billie Eilish recently graced the cover of Vogue with a striking change from her usual big boyish looks. This time she donned pin-up-inspired lingerie and Old Hollywood curls in soft pink colors – an entirely different palette than her previous neon green and black signatures.
She’s been vocal about her body image issues since she started her career, and now she’s taking a more prominent role in advocating for body positivity by wearing feminine clothing styles. She says she’s tired of being body shamed and wants people to know that no matter what you wear, it’s okay to feel proud of your shape.
Celebrities rarely take such a bold step, showing they are in control of their body image rather than being pressured into an unflattering look by the media. Her Vogue photoshoot is more than just a fashion statement: it’s her way to celebrate coming of age and demonstrate that life can be lived on her terms alone.
Her vogue cover also features a group of young climate activists and artists who work to combat the impacts of climate change. For the shoot, Tonne Goodman styled it with sustainable brands like Bode, Chopova Lowena, Collina Strada and Stella McCartney using sustainable fabrics.
In a time when body-shaming is so prevalent and young women struggle to feel confident in their own skins, Billie Eilish’s Vogue cover is an inspiring testament of confidence that should be celebrated. She’s inspiring her fans to embrace body positivity just as she does.
At 19, she is still learning how to navigate life in the spotlight, but her transition into form-fitting clothes marks an important milestone in her career. In an interview with British Vogue, she talks about how she used to hide her figure behind baggy tees and sweatpants so as not to feel body shamed by others.
Eilish has been criticized for her new look, yet she insists she isn’t selling out or changing her values in any way. In an interview, Eilish said that she had always wanted to be a role model for other young girls; by embracing this style she wants to demonstrate that nothing is impossible when you put your mind to it.
Her fans have rallied behind the teenage singer during her dramatic transformation. They created stunning fan art that reimagined her new looks, from illustrations and edits to collages. One artist even drew Billie wearing her custom Alexander McQueen corset dress alongside the words: “Showing your body – whether that means showing skin or not – should not take any respect away from you.”
Her followers’ art was so remarkable that it even inspired her own Instagram post with a new image! Check out some of the fan art pieces below.
