Billie Eilish Went Full Goth Queen At The Oscars

This gown has me happier than ever.

Billie Eilish’s 2022 Oscar red carpet ensemble was a whole vibe and that vibe was big goth energy. The Best Original Song nominee wore an off-the-shoulder tiered Gucci gown which was *a lot* of look, but Eilish wore it well and then some, serving up some smoldering poses before heading inside. While the look certainly doesn’t show off a lot of skin, Eilish was working the gown and clearly feeling herself.

The Oscar-winning musician has had something of a fashion awakening as of late. This red carpet look combines the oversized aesthetic she first hit the music scene with and the vintage glamour she’s embraced in her Happier than Ever era. The silhouette of this ruffled Gucci gown suggests Eilish’s curves without clinging to them and the short train adds just a touch of drama, but just a touch. With or without the train, this gown is a major fashion moment and Eilish’s jewelry and styling really support the look.

When it came to accessories, Eilish kept the goth queen vibes going with matching Fred Leighton diamond rings and earrings in the shape of stars. Her sleek lob was styled with just a touch of retro flip at the ends and her makeup was sultry, glossy, and simple. It was fresh, but fierce.

The drama of it all — the ruffles, the tiers, the off-the-shoulder silhouette, the train — could explain why Eilish opted for simple, comfortable platforms. While many other celebs in attendance wore heels on the carpet (and Kristen Stewart changed back into flats), the 20-year-old Oscar winner wore a pair of sky-high platform shoes.

The boots peeking out of Eilish’s Gucci gown — and shown off to greater effect at the Vanity Fair after party where Eilish change into a short frock — are Demonia Cult, as reported by Footwear News. The knee-high boots have a platform of around five inches and are vegan leather. They’re also comfortable, judging by the fact that Eilish wore them all night long.

Overall, Eilish’s look was one of the more high fashion moments on the red carpet at the 2022 Oscars, but the young star was also entirely herself. The platform boots, Gucci gown, celestial jewelry, and vintage glam all felt very Billie which, as a fan, I love to see.
