American artist Billie Eilish surprised fans with her transformation into an “old-timey pin-up” model for the latest cover of British Vogue.

The “Bad Guy” hitmaker donned platinum blond hair and lingerie to pull off the look, of which the idea she came up with herself, as per her interview with the magazine released on May 2.

On her new hair color, Billie Eilish revealed that she was “ready for it to suck,” but it ended up making her “feel more like a woman, somehow.”

To the delight of fans, the 19-year-old artist then shared the photos from the cover shoot for British Vogue via Instagram the next day.

In one cover, Billie Eilish donned a custom corset and skirt from Gucci, latex gloves from Atsuko Kudo and jewelry from Anita Ko and Jacquie Aiche.

She wore similar attires in the other photos, noting in her latest post: “[I] love these pictures and [I] loved doing this shoot.”

“[Do] whatever you want whenever you want. [F*ck] everything else,” she added.

The transformation of Billie Eilish – for the cover of the magazine, at least – is quite a breath of fresh air as the teenage pop star is known for often wearing baggy clothing.

Billie Eilish, who is the youngest winner of the Grammy for Album of the Year, previously admitted that she dresses the way she does to not get judged by others.

“I never want the world to know everything about me. I mean, that’s why I wear big baggy clothes. Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath,” she said in a Calvin Klein commercial released in 2019.

Billie Eilish is a known advocate against body shaming as well, so much so that she released a short film last year titled “NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY” to emphasize her stance.

In her interview with British Vogue, she admitted that she has “literally never done anything in this realm at all,” referring to her cover shoot.

She then dove deeper into the reason why she wears baggy clothes, noting that her body “was the initial reason for my depression when I was younger.”

Now embracing body positivity, Billie Eilish said her new look – wearing corsets in particular – is just her way of saying that “I can do whatever I want.”

“It’s all about what makes you feel good. If you want to get surgery, go get surgery. If you want to wear a dress that somebody thinks that you look too big wearing, f*ck it – if you feel like you look good, you look good,” she was quoted as saying.

Aside from being a seven-time Grammy winner, Billie Eilish was recently chosen as one of the young Met Gala co-chairs along with actor Timothee Chalamet, poet Amanda Gorman and tennis player Naomi Osaka. Ian Biong /ra
