Billie Eilish on the cover of June 2021 British Vogue
Billie Eilish, the sensation of pop music and an icon of Internet fame, appears on the latest British Vogue cover. Her new look, which gained one million likes in six minutes, includes a feminine corset, glamorous makeup, and blond curly hair framing her face, making her look like a classic Hollywood diva or a pin-up girl.
In her interview for Vogue, the superstar tells sincerely that this kind of style is absolutely new for her. Besides being really fascinated, she feels incredibly edgy.
The idea of this photoshoot belongs to Billie herself. She admits she’s not quite confident about her body and the photo session and appearing on the Vogue cover is a great chance to rethink her attitude and reveal all the sides of her personality.
The Grammy-winning star admits that her body used to be the reason for depression earlier. Things deteriorated when she gave up dancing at the age of 13. It explains her choice of oversized, baggy clothes, hoodies, and long sleeves. But namely, this type of clothes became her outstanding feature.
Billie Eilish unveils her understanding of looking good. For her, this notion is very personal. It means that if you want to wear a dress, go and wear it, no matter what other people think of it. The most important thing is that you feel you look good in it. She adds that if you show a bit of your skin, you are considered to be easy and a slut. But Billie proposes to be empowered in it, as showing your body and skin can’t take respect away from you.
Billie is considered to be an icon of body positivity due to this kind of attitude. She also predicts one version of the response to the photo session. Why an icon of body positivity is wearing a corset? Why isn’t she showing her “real” body? The thing is that she is doing what she wants.
Billie’s last single “Your Power” has got a powerful message behind it and is about abusing relations with underaged girls.
