Billie Eilish Says Her Met Gala Beauty Look Is Inspired by Holiday Barbie, but We See Marilyn Monroe, Too
The Super Bowl of beauty is here – the 2021 Met Gala has officially kicked off, and it’s stacking up to be everything we were hoping for and more. Especially now that Billie Eilish has arrived. The Happier Than Ever singer arrived in a larger-than-life blush ballgown with her newly chopped bob haircut and Old Hollywood glam-inspired makeup that screamed Marylin Monroe to us, but apparently, her inspiration came from somewhere else.
During a quick red carpet with host Keke Palmer, Eilish disclosed the inspiration for her stunning look: Holiday Barbie. “It was my favorite thing in the world,” Eilish said. “I would ask for them for Christmas, like, every single year . . . Honestly, like, genuinely, that was my inspiration.”
Monroe or Holiday Barbie – Eilish looks amazing either way. As much as we loved her neon-green hair, the new platinum-blond bob is making it a bit easier to say goodbye.
