Billie Eilish, who was one of the co-chairs at this year’s Met Gala event, made a stunning debut at the renowned charity event on Monday, September 13. The ‘Bad Guy’ hitmaker stepped out in a nude princess gown leaving the Internet impressed. The teen sensation, however, was trending on social media for a completely different reason.

The multiple Grammy award winner, who is known for promoting veganism, told her designer that she will only opt for the dress if they completely stop using fur in their production to which they happily obliged. At the event, Eilish channeled her Marilyn Monroe with a similar bob haircut. Her Cartier jewelry too grabbed the attention. The Los Angeles native also took to her Instagram to share a lengthy post thanking her designer for the gorgeous gown. This is the first time when the young singer was seen in such an elegant dress as she usually opts for casual clothing- MTV VMAs being the most recent example where simply opted for a black casual outfit.

Who designed Billie Eilish’s Met Gala outfit?

Eilish’s massive peach gown was designed by Oscar de la Renta who is known for his earlier phenomenal Met Gala dresses as well. Eilish had a pretty straightforward condition to pick their dress only if they stopped using fur, as reported by New York Times. While thanking the designer and his team, Eilish shared multiple pictures from the event with a lengthy caption. Sharing the post with her more than 90 million followers on Instagram, “Thank you @oscardelarenta for designing this BEAUTIFUL dress and bringing my ideas and vision to life. it was an honor to wear this dress knowing that going forward oscar de la renta will be completely fur-free!!!!”

The 19-year-old crooner continued, “I am beyond thrilled that @fernandogarciam1205 and @tokibunbun and the entire team heard me on this issue, and have now made a change that makes an impact for the greater good, not only for animals but also for our planet and environment too. i’m honored to have been a catalyst and to have been heard on this matter.”  She concluded, “I urge all designers to do the same.” While speaking toNew York Times, she had said that she was "honored to have been a catalyst" at the fashion house, adding that she was shocked that "wearing fur isn't completely outlawed at this point in 2021."

The theme of the 2021 Met Gala is "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion," honoring the 75th anniversary of the Costume Institute and celebrating modern American fashion and Elish sure slayed in her gorgeous gown. 
 



 

‘Billie Eilish got an entire brand to stop using fur’

The Internet was surely impressed with Eilish’s move and they mirrored the same feelings on Twitter. One said, “She wore that dress on one condition, the designer stops designing and selling real fur garments. How many other artists get big time designers to not use animal fur? And how is that not beneficial to the environment?” Another posted, “@billieeilish understood the assignment. Such a positive move for banishing the fur trade in high-end fashion!!”
 
One user tweeted, “Wish more celebrities would follow her lead when it comes to wearing fur and other animal products.” Whereas, the next one shared, “Billie Eilish not only looking incredible in this Oscar de le Renta gown, but also being a catalyst to end the luxury brands use of fur is the most beautiful part of this 2021 Met Gala collaboration.” Another added, “Billie Eilish got an entire brand to stop using fur if they wanted her to wear their clothing.. do people realise how big that is.” And, another person concluded, “ok WAIT Billie Eilish agreeing to wear Oscar De La Renta only if they stopped using fur in their production has saved the night for me. Best dressed, the end.”
