10 epic fashion moments you might have missed in Billie Eilish’s new documentary
From her attitude towards the BS to her passion for promoting body positivity and her insanely catchy songs, Billie Eilish is an inspiration – especially to me. Full Disclosure: I’m still playing “Bad Guy” on replay in my car and “Lovely” is next in rotation.
With that in mind, you can probably guess that I was more than a little excited to see their new documentary. Billie Eilish: The world is a little blurry, now streaming on Apple TV +. The film covers many different aspects of the singer’s story, with an emphasis on her music and personal life (including a secret ex-boyfriend, rapper Brandon Adams, aka Q). The doc begins with Eilish’s sudden rise to fame at the age of 13 with her hit “Ocean Eyes” and describes how she grew up in a musical family. As many Eilish fans know, she and her brother Finneas wrote and recorded songs together when they were children – and her mother even helped make her first music video. Because Eilish’s lyrics are so deep and wise beyond her years, it was shocking to hear her reveal that she absolutely hates writing them – but it makes more sense given how open she is to her mental health problems and hers Self-image is especially when it comes to fashion.
One of the most notable elements of Eilish’s personal style is how impressive she is with body shamers. Both the public and the media have commented on her body and clothing. In response to this, she created a video that clapped people who commented on her body. It is a comment on the age-old sexist idea that when a woman covers up she is prudish, but when she wears small clothes she is a slut. Eilish realizes that the opinions of others are not her responsibility and she is the only one who can define herself.
As someone who has struggled with body image practically all of their life, this bold message meant a lot to me. In a world obsessed with diet culture, it can be all too easy not to like our bodies and listen to other people’s opinions on how to dress. But as Eilish says, only we can define ourselves, and only our perception matters. People who do not know us cannot talk to what we are “allowed” or how “good” or “bad” we look. To illustrate this, Eilish has mastered being comfortable in an outfit and looking fashionable.
