Gen Z icon: Billie Eilish and her music, fashion

American singer-songwriter Billie Eilish holds the title of Generation Z icon. At the age of 20, the pop artist became a multiple Grammy winner. She has shown her music artistry and is also known for her fashion taste.

Billie’s creativity is evident in her songs and the outfits she wore throughout her music career. In every album, we see a whole different Billie in terms of physical appearance. She presents different colors and looks for each era. Furthermore, the evolution of her fashion style always grabs public attention.

Billie Eilish released two studio albums, four extended plays, and 31 singles. She and her co-writer, producer, and older brother, Finneas, work together to make music. These songs were recorded in Finneas’ bedroom in their family home.

Billie incorporates pop, dark pop, electropop, emo pop, experimental pop, goth pop, indie pop, teen pop, and alternative pop. She also combines several musical styles. Aside from this, she uses breathy, soft, and gentle vocal tones. Her singing style instantly gives her music a dreamy quality, giving more feeling to her songs.

Moreover, she is famous for exercising complete creative control over all aspects of her work, including songwriting, album art creation, and even music video directing. Her involvement in the overall process of her music proves how hands-on she is.

Fashion Icon

Billie Eilish’s fashion sense is totally unique and different from the famous women artist when she became popular. She reversed the conventional definition of beauty to something fantastical that is influenced by cyberculture. She wears baggy and oversized clothes— the skater and hip-hop styles.

In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Billie talked about her style:

“I just like dressing out of my comfort zone. I want to dress in a way that if I was in a room full of people wearing regular clothes, I would be like, ‘Oh I bet everyone’s looking at me.’”

Billie also tried coloring her hair several times. From silver when she first became widely known with Ocean Eyes to the latest black hair. But her neon green roots hair became her signature look as paired with black and green baggy outfits. She also did lavender, blue, teal, black, brown, and blonde.

Billie Eilish maintains her overall image and her sense of self-authenticity as an artist. But she still tries different fashion styles for photo shoots and attending events like Met Gala.
