Billie Eilish's 2021 Met Gala Beauty Look Was Inspired By Her Favorite Childhood Barbie

If there's one thing Billie Eilish is going to do, it's shut down a red carpet. So obviously, she did just that at the 2021 Met Gala.

Fresh off the VMAs, the Gen Z pop star's look for fashion's biggest night was an ode to the holiday Barbie of years past — a gift the star still holds dear.

"It was my favorite thing in the world," Eilish told Met Gala co-host Keke Palmer shortly after she arrived. "I would ask for them for Christmas every single year. The dresses, genuinely that was my inspiration."

In terms of beauty, the Grammy-winner went for Old Hollywood glam, working with makeup artist Rob Rumsey who used BYBI Beauty for skin prep, followed by Charlotte Tilbury makeup to create a subtle cat eye with a matte nude lip and rosy cheeks.

The 19-year-old's bleach blonde hair was styled into a wavy bob, giving off a Marilyn Monroe vibe.

While we typically see the star in more conservative wear, she says feeling comfortable wearing this elaborate dress by Oscar de la Renta has been a long time in the making.
