Billie Eilish’s Custom Gucci Met Gala Dress Was Entirely Upcycled

Tonight was only Billie Eilish’s second time on the Met Gala red carpet, but she made sure her sequel look was just as much a standout as the first. Putting her own spin on the gilded glamour dress code, the superstar opted for a regal Gucci look by Alessandro Michele that was made entirely with upcycled materials. 

Eilish wore a custom Gucci ivory and duchesse satin corseted gown, complete with a green lace underlay and gathered ivory skirt—and a padded bustle, of course. For Eilish, it was important for her look to be sustainable this year. “I just wanted to be as eco-friendly as possible,” Eilish said during the Vogue livestream. The look was filled with whimsical detailing, too. The train featured a cascading floral arrangement, and on the bust was a tonal corsage. She completed her look with a black choker with scalloped embroidery, and beige platform shoes made from vegan materials. 

Eilish is no stranger to bringing a strong silhouette to the Met Gala. Last year, she channeled Old Hollywood glamour—and Marilyn Monroe!—in a peachy Oscar de la Renta gown, which was complete with a long, sweeping train that commanded the paparazzi. But her thoughtful approach to eco fashion this evening, which still fell in line with the theme, secured her yet another Met Gala win.
