Billie Eilish Is Very Fierce In New Shoot For ‘Vogue Australia’
Billie Eilish is a vision in violet in a new spread for Vogue Australia. The 17-year-old phenom covers the publication’s July issue, and every frame from the accompanying shoot is predictably fierce. Shot by Jesse Lizotte, she shows out in a variety of oversized looks. The end result is appropriately moody. However, the heavy use of various shades of purple adds a dreamy, slightly ethereal quality to the photos. In the accompanying interview, the “bad guy” hitmaker reflects on her career trajectory. 2019 in particular has been a massive year with the release of her debut album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?.
The LP topped the Billboard 200 and all but cemented Billie’s status as a global force. She reflected on just how bright her star has been shining when mentioning fans in the audience during a recent concert in New Zealand. “I saw them crying and singing my lyrics at the top of their lungs and jumping and screaming and having the time of their lives,” she said. “It made me think about the way I used to watch documentaries of my favourite artists and I used to cry because it was so beautiful. And there I was, on that stage … I stood there and just cried. It hurt in an amazing, beautiful, horrible, amazing way.”
However, she pushed back against people’s tendency to refer to her as the next big thing in pop. “As grateful as I am for the appreciation and the love, honestly, I’ve become numb to it,” she explained. “I remember the first couple of times people called me the face of pop or pop’s new It girl or whatever the fuck … it kind of irked me. The weird thing about humans is we [think we] have to label everything, but we don’t.” Scroll through a gallery of photos from the shoot up top and check out the rest of the feature here.
