Billie was the Gilded Age Dream
This year’s theme for Met Gala was “In America: An Anthology of Fashion”, or “Gilded Glamour”. The star-studded event was the second part of the Costume Institute’s exhibition. And guess what? Billie Eilish was everything about them.
The 20-year-old multiple-Grammy awardee entered the event in a custom-made “Gilded Age” theme gown by Gucci. The gorgeous satin corseted gown, designed by Alessandro Michele, was made entirely with upcycled materials.
Billie’s Gucci ivory and Duchesse satin corseted gown, toned with a green lace underlay and gathered ivory skirt made it a memorable appearance on the red carpet. The pastel look of the dress complimented her skin tone. Her gorgeous dress included a padded bustle, and the gown featured a cascading floral arrangement.
A tonal corsage on the bust enhanced the beauty of the dress. The tones of pastels were eye-catching and she completed this look with a black choker with scalloped embroidery. She was wearing beige platform shoes made from vegan material to complement the pastel colours of this gorgeous satin gown.
It did appear that Billie has just come off from the Bridgerton set! Well, didn’t the designers of the show work hard on some of the best dresses of the season? As for jewellery, the “Ocean Eyes” singer added sparkling earrings. The star was wearing plenty of diamond rings to complete her gorgeous look.
Adding sparkling earrings, a black choker dripping with diamonds and plenty of diamond rings, the Grammy winner wore her hair in an elegant updo. Billie wanted to keep it all eco-friendly. She stated in a Vogue live stream, “We didn’t have to waste a bunch of stuff, I just wanted to be kind of like as eco-friendly as possible.”
Billie’s Second Appearance
This year’s Met Gala was Billie Eilish’s second appearance. Last year, Billie Eilish showcased an Old Hollywood glamour, just like Marilyn Monroe. She was seen in a peachy Oscar de la Renta gown along with a long, sweeping train that has everyone’s eyes. She said, her inspiration behind that look was Barbie.
This year, Billie has levelled up her game with her approach to eco-fashion and the Gucci gown which is made of existing materials and reveals perfect pastel shades. Even her jewellery is made from vegan material.

Billie’s 2022 Met Gala gown was truly inspired by the Regency Era, remember the gorgeous outfits we witnessed in Bridgerton? It included many elements from the said period, such as the lace, floral embellishments, bustle skirt and corset.
Well, the gown is now one of the biggest spring trends as celebrities and fans can’t stop awing it. Billie Eilish nailed it when it comes to this year’s theme at the Met Gala event. The musician did understand the assignment, didn’t she?
