For another! Billie EilishOn Monday, May 2, the famed Metropolitan Museum of Art steps was reopened for the 2022 Met Gala in New York City.
Eilish, 20, wore a Gucci dress featuring a corset bodice and green lace sleeves in conjunction with this year’s “In America: An Anthology of Fashion” theme. While speaking with VogueGrammy winner, She revealed that her dress was entirely made from existing materials and excess fabric. This allowed her to avoid creating waste during the creation process. “We’re trying to be as eco-friendly as possible,” she told La La Anthony.
The California native who made headlines Monday was previously a Met Gala cohost last year.
“Eilish’s willingness to embrace an aesthetic as innovative as her music has pushed emerging brands into the limelightAnd challenged old rules about how a pop star should dress,” Vogue said in their official host announcement at the time. In other words, she’s no stranger to keeping fans on their toes.
The “Bad Guy” songstress — who cohosted the September 2021 festivities alongside Timothée Chalamet, Amanda Gorman and Naomi Osaka — became the youngest individual of all time to land the gig. On the carpet, Eilish showed off a new side of her personality when she donned a tulle, off-the-shoulder Oscar de la Renta gown with her hair in platinum blonde curls à la Marilyn Monroe.
While the Grammy winner looked like a natural red carpet fit that September, she described the experience as “nuts” as a whole.
“It’s famous people, famous people-ing,” she joked during an appearance on The Howard Stern Show December 2021 “That’s what it is.”
The “Happier Than Ever” musician added: “I was like, ‘Wow, all these people are just somebody that’s in class with you,’ and you think this person’s kinda annoying, you really like this person, you get along with this person, and everybody’s just, like, embarrassed and insecure about what they’re doing and saying. It was amazing. [and] it was just beautiful in there.”
Ahead of Eilish’s red carpet appearance at the museum benefit on Monday, she served as one of the headliners at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, California.
“Oh, look! An empty seat. Who’s that for?” the performer — who won her first Oscar earlier this year — teased on April 23 during her set. “Everybody, can we please welcome my friend Hayley Williams!”
Eilish and the Paramore singer, 33, duetted on Williams’ “Misery Business” number to the surprise of attendees.
“Oh my f—king god,” the Simpsons: When Billie Met Lisa At the time, alum gushed. “Absolutely what on earth could be cooler than that? I’m dead serious.”
The “Angel Eyes” musician — who brought out Blur’s Damon Albarn during her performance one week earlier — has since been in awe of her sets at the California music festival.
“Never could’ve imagined this would be my life. Thank you @coachella,” she wrote via Instagram on April 25, sharing behind-the-scenes snaps from her night.
