Billie Eilish might as well be a human butterfly — because she’s undergone a metamorphosis for the cover of British Vogue … and looks absolutely incredible for the final product.
The pop star shed her green wig and baggy sweaters and swapped them for something a little more skimpy and steamy for the upcoming June issue … and it’s just about the most jaw-dropping thing we’ve seen in a good while.
BE looks like a pinup model from the ’20s and/or ’50s — and yes, there are big-time echoes of Marilyn Monroe here … at least in our eyes. Indeed, she’s achieved bombshell status.
Now, we’ve seen Billie without the green hair of late and even without the loose clothing too — but we haven’t ever seen her quite like this … where she’s showing off her full figure for a magazine shoot. There’s something to be said there too, which Billie did in her interview.
She talked about body image issues — and not necessarily ones she had for her herself … but ones the media placed on her as she was thrust into the spotlight over these past couple years. Billie posted a quote of hers from the Vogue issue, and she talks about the freak-out that some outlets had when Billie stepped out in anything other than her signature look.
Billie says, “Suddenly you’re a hypocrite if you want to show your skin, and you’re easy and you’re a slut and you’re a whore. If I am, then I’m proud.” She adds, “Me and all the girls are hoes, and f*** it, y’know? Let’s turn it around and be empowered in that. Showing your body and showing your skin — or not — should not take any respect away from you”
In other words … her message seems to be, do whatever the hell you want, and look however the hell you want, regardless of what others expect. Good advice right there.
