As the buzz from the 2021 Met Ball comes to a close, it’s time to focus on some of the most memorable looks of the day.
Billie Eilish dressed to the nines in an all-black killer Simone Rocha ensemble, stole the show in her unique choice of designer and interpretation of the 2023 theme (Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty).
She donned a black bustier minidress, sequined all over, complete with sequin tights, black glistening headpieces, and smoky eye makeup to match, making her blue eyes pop. The “Bad Guy” singer completed the look with black platform heels and signature chunky silver rings.
Rocha herself gave a few comments on what it was like to dress the internationally-acclaimed superstar. “I was inspired by Billie herself, her talent, her world, and her powerful femininity… I wanted to celebrate her femininity through fragility and strength. Working with fragile tulle and edging it in lace, interpreting embellishment as armour, and creating a look which reflected an emotion, a very layered piece revealing what lies beneath…” She executed the gown with the vision of Billie’s feminine energy in mind. Considering the songwriter often opts for baggier clothing, the collaboration between Billie and Simone Rocha was destined for success.
