The Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter appeared on the June cover of British Vogue to wide-spread acclaim as she discussed her experiences as an artist.
Eilish, who for a number of years has had characteristic green and black hair, recently unveiled a new blonde hairdo on Instagram. It became the quickest picture ever to reach one million likes.
Her aesthetic has traditionally included baggy skater-esque clothes, which the 19-year-old has explained as being both an expression of her personal style, and an effort also to stop people sexualising her.
On the Vogue cover, Eilish appears in a pin-up-esque outfit, wearing a pink corset and nude slip. The aesthetic change is also a preparation for her forthcoming album.
Speaking to the publication, Eilish said, “Don’t make me not a role model because you’re turned on by me.”
“Young women, we’re expected to know and do everything, and be everyone’s mom when we’re like, 15.”
“Suddenly you’re a hypocrite if you want to show your skin, and you’re easy and you’re a slut and you’re a whore. If I am, then I’m proud,” she explained.
“Me and all the girls are hoes, and f**k it, y’know? Let’s turn it around and be empowered in that. Showing your body and showing your skin – or not – should not take any respect away from you.”
The interview, and the photoshoot itself, have received widespread praise on social media.
