Billie Eilish’s blush Oscar de la Renta gown featured a tulle skirt the size of Cinderella’s pumpkin coach, a 15-foot train, and a corset bodice. The almost cartoonish silhouette made it look like a Disney princess dress brought to life, but the “Happier Than Ever” singer was not inspired by animated heroines hoping for their happily ever afters. As reported by InStyle, she revealed that the gown was her take on the festive dresses adorned by Holiday Barbie. “It was my favorite thing in the world. I would ask for them for Christmas every single year,” she said while chatting with her Met Gala co-host Keke Palmer. Eilish also rocked Barbie-blond hair, but channeled a little more Marilyn Monroe with the short style and diamond jewels.
While Eilish has spoken out about struggling with body image issues before, her Barbie look is her way of showing everyone that she’s loving her body a lot more these days after shedding her baggy Gucci ensembles. “I was just scared and didn’t feel comfortable in my skin, and I feel like I finally did,” she said at the Met Gala, per InStyle.
