As a result of Billie Eilish’s cover picture for British Vogue, which pays homage to classic Hollywood glamour, a debate has erupted regarding the sexualization of women’s bodies in popular media.
Since she rose to stardom as a 14-year-old composer, the singer, now 19, has made it a point to appear in public wearing baggy attire.
In a commercial for Calvin Klein in 2019, she claimed that her signature look was inspired by a desire to avoid being seen by the world.

To prove that she’s in charge, Billie Eilish has ditched her raffish image in favour of something a little more… mature, she’s decided to change her name to Billie Eilish.
On the cover of this month’s British Vogue, she shows off her sultry side. For the first time, she’s ditched her distinctive green hair for blonde and full bombshell.

Hair, as a wise woman once observed, is “everything.” Hair is the most important thing in a person’s appearance.
Billie Eilish’s announcement that she was returning to her blonde roots sparked a media frenzy like no other dye job.
It took just six minutes for her Instagram post to become the third most-liked ever, and within two days, it had earned more than a million likes.
Of course, Billie felt the same way about her change. For her, it made her “feel more like a woman, somehow,” as she recently explained to British Vogue.
On her magazine cover, which references her “internet-breaking transition” and her new tune, “Your Power,” which speaks out against predators who prey on children.
The 19-year-old singer reflects on her decision to embrace her sexuality and do whatever makes her happy.
Wearing custom-made corsets from Gucci, Burberry, Alexander McQueen, and Mugler is currently on the list of things to do.
Billie Eilish’s second album and bold new appearance in British Vogue have once again taken the music industry by storm.
At 19, she was once considered an icon for refusing the conventional body-baring attire worn by female pop singers and instead opting for a corset.
She expected to face criticism and resentment for making the switch from her loose clothes to a corset. She had a point.
Some believe that her more risqué persona indicates that she has sold out and rejected her core convictions..
