The recent concept of British Vogue magazine features a cover shot of the seven times Grammy award holder singer Billie Eilish with Marilyn Monroe-style blond hair busting out of a pink and flesh-colored lingerie collection.
The 19-year-old singer ditched her iconic baggy clothes for a “classic, old-timey pin-up” look in the June issue of British Vogue, which was released on Sunday, an idea she came up with herself.
“I’ve literally never done anything in this realm at all,” the singer confessed before teasing, “except for when I’m alone and s—-.”
Eilish, who debuted her new light blonde hair last month for the daring photoshoot, wears a collection of vintage-inspired dresses. She wears a custom Burberry trench coat and corset in one photo, as well as a tattoo she got last year that she previously promised fans would never see.
“It’s all about what makes you feel good,” Eilish told the magazine, which described her as a longtime fan of 1940s and 1950s pin-up sexpots and said she came up with the cover idea.
“If I’m honest with you, I hate my stomach, and that’s why,” Eilish said of what drew her to corsets.
In the interview, Eilish also said that not all responses to the photoshoot would likely be positive. “‘Why would you wear a corset if you’re all about body positivity?’ ‘What’s the harm in showing your whole body?’ “One potential response, she said.
“My thing is that I can do whatever I want,” she said. “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— it – if you feel like you look good, you look good.”
The cover shoot came just days after the singer dropped her new single “Your Power,” which is from her upcoming sophomore album Happier Than Ever.
Happier Than Ever, Eilish’s second full-length studio album, is set to be released on July 30.
“This is my favorite thing I’ve ever made, and I’m so anxious, nervous, and EAGER for you to hear it,” she said of the upcoming release on Instagram. “I’m not sure I can tell you.”
“I’ve never felt so passionately about a project as I do about this one. I hope you feel the same way I do “she continued.
She told Vogue, “I’ve grown so much and gotten so much better in my voice — it’s insane to think about.” “I think that change is one of life’s greatest gifts.”
