Top models Bella Hadid, Sara Sampaio, and Emily Ratajkowski have all praised Billie Eilish’s glamorous new look.
For the cover of the June 2021 issue of British Vogue, the Bad Guy hitmaker opted to showcase her freshly-dyed blonde hair and pose up a storm in a corset and skirt by Gucci, bra and knickers from Agent Provocateur, and Latex gloves by Atsuko Kudo.
After Billie uploaded the image to her Instagram page on Sunday, the post quickly racked up over 14 million likes, with many of her celebrity followers taking the opportunity to praise the “classic, old-timey” pin-up-inspired photoshoot.
“BILLIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE,” wrote Bella, alongside a string of red heart emojis.
While Lily Aldridge commented, “Gorgeous,” Sara posted, “Omg!!!!!! this is epic!!!” and new mum Emily added: “Yusss.”
Singers Maren Morris, Chloe Bailey, and Meghan Trainor also shared positive messages, as did British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful, who wrote, “YOU KILLED IT.”
Speaking about her decision to ditch her signature baggy outfits and brightly coloured hair in an interview for the publication, Billie confessed she found the makeover to be rather empowering.
“My thing is that I can do whatever I want. It’s all about what makes you feel good. 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**k it – if you feel like you look good, you look good,” the 19-year-old insisted. “Showing your body and showing your skin – or not – should not take any respect away from you.”
