Billie Eilish is one of the few stars to achieve fame so quickly and in such a major way. Billie Eilish began her career in music when she was a teenager. In just a few short years, the artist went from being a Gen-Z favorite with blue hair to becoming one of the most influential (and chameleonic!) forces in the music industry. All this happened alongside her brother Finneas, who is a frequent collaborator. Eilish, 22, has seven Grammys as well as two Golden Globes and two Oscars. She’s also had a variety of hairstyles that have become iconic.

The baggy clothes that she wore to start her career are still a staple (especially when on tour), but the musician has also made a splash with logomania, and vintage Hollywood glamour. She has also made a number of memorable fashion statements at the Met Gala. In 2024, it is rumored that she will make another one. While we wait for her to make an appearance at the Met Gala in 2024, take a look at 21 of Billie Eilish’s most memorable fashion moments. All of these highlight what makes Billie Eilish so influential, and get us excited about what she will serve us years from now.
