Anna Wintour is a big fan of Billie Eilish’s signature fashion aesthetic.
The Bad Guy singer is known for her edgy outfits, often wearing baggy trousers and long T-shirts for her concerts and appearances.
Eilish has recently teamed with the likes of Calvin Klein, Bershka, leather goods brands MCM, and streetwear company Freak City on capsule collections, and U.S. Vogue editor-in-chief Wintour has now shared that she is taking a keen interest in the 17-year-old’s clothing and career choices.
“What I like about Billie’s style is it’s very particular to her. She’s obviously channelling one person, which is herself,” she commented in a new video for Vogue’s Go Ask Anna series. “She came up to see us recently at Vogue. She was in head-to-toe, bright, bright orange and looked incredible. And I also want to celebrate, applaud her point of view and her activism on body positivity and how outspoken she is on that subject.”
Elsewhere in the conversation, Wintour spoke about a wide range of topics, including what it is like to go backstage at fashion shows and her interest in the rise of sustainable fabrics.
She also shared that she would one day like to see music stars FKA Twigs and Harry Styles walk the runway, though confessed she still gets a thrill out of watching top models strut their stuff.
“Of course, when someone like Cara Delevingne or Kendall (Jenner) appear on the runway when they don’t do it so much anymore, is also incredibly exciting,” the 69-year-old insisted.
And when it comes to choosing what to wear to fashion events, Wintour is very selective.
“Obviously, you (should showcase your) own personal style and also, it is always courteous to wear a look from the designer whose show you are about to see,” she noted.
