Billie Eilish is V Magazine's September cover star.
For the shoot, Billie ditched her signature athleisure clothes in favor of a Victorian bridal look.
What you probably think of when I say "Billie Eilish:" Music, her cool style, and probably "Bad Guy" (duh).
What doesn't likely come to mind: Flowy-haired brides who look like they could be marrying Timothée Chalamet in Little Women. Glance at V Magazine's latest issue though, and your mind will probably change. In honor of the mag's 20th anniversary, they nabbed Billie Eilish as a cover star, but instead of dressing her in her usual rotation of track suits and baggy clothes, they gave her a distinctly more anachronistic outfit.
As Seventeen first pointed out, Billie dons the cover dressed in a Victorian-era bridal look, complete with a bouquet of wedding-worthy lilies. According to editor and fashion stylist for the shoot, Alex White, Billie's actually wearing a Gucci cape, top, and pants, along with a Bulgari necklace and a Tiffany & Co. ring.
In additional pics from the shoot, Billie goes less bridal and more true to her personal style with a pair of sick skull glasses and a long black wig that would look right at home on the set of The Ring.
In the accompanying interview with Pharrell, Billie talked about her rise in the industry, remembering how some executives didn't take her seriously. Joke's on them, right?
"I remember the first time I had any sort of meeting with a label or management, I was 13. I think the only people that didn't look at me like I was going to have a horrible career were the people that I ended up working with," she said. "Everyone was just like, ‘Oh, you're 13, yikes, you're going to be used,' and this and that. And I am like, ‘Yo, y'all are the people that would use me in the situation you are talking about.' So, I don't know what that is supposed to mean."
"The only people who didn't say that shit were the people that I felt an energy and connection with. I am really, really lucky and grateful that I have had the experience that I had with my label and with my team and everyone, because I never had any issues with people trying to pull me in a different direction, one in which I would not want to be headed. I think that might just be because I have always been the kind of person that knows what the fuck I want, and if it's not what I want, then I am not going to do it."
