19-year-old Billie Eilish is featured on the cover of British Vogue, shortly after changing her green and black hair for blonde. The magazine said, “She is indulging a fantasy by embracing a ‘classic, old-timey pin-up’ look.”
Eilish said she wanted to explore the beauty of corsets, which she said she knew would rile people, but was also drawn to their original restrictive function. The new look is a huge change for Eilish, who said in the interview that her body is her “deepest insecurity” and was the initial reason for her depression when she was younger, which led to her wearing baggy clothes. Eilish said she expects criticism of her more revealing shoot with British Vogue, adding, “My thing is that I can do whatever I want. It’s all about what makes you feel good. Showing your body and showing your skin — or not — should not take any respect away from you.”
Eilish’s new album “Happier Than Ever” will be released on July 30.
