BILLIE EILISH: The Cover-Up Is Over

Written by on May 3, 2021

Billie Eilish is no longer covering up.

In a provocative new British Vogue cover story and fashion layout she abandons the loose-fitting, boyish wardrobe that rocketed her to stardom in her mid-teens and takes on the confident look of a woman about to enter her 20s.

Eilish has posted the cover shot plus three more looks that have her in poses, couture clothing and lingerie that amount to a modern take on a 1940s screen siren’s pin-up shots. She made it clear on Instagram that it was her vision, and she thanked the magazine’s staff for respecting it.

The magazine spread appears to be a personal triumph for Eilish, who has struggled with body image issues in the past, as well as being body-shamed on social media. In her caption to the final photo she shared, she writes that she “loved doing this shoot,” and advises, “Do whatever you want whenever you want. [Eff] everything else.”
