I don’t know many things for certain these days, but I do know this: Billie Eilish is a bona fide fashion icon. The singer has appeared on nearly every red carpet in existence in a series of looks that makes me wish I had her styling team at my disposal, so of course I wasn’t shocked to see Billie Eilish’s incredible GRAMMYS look—which landed her on my personal best-dressed list right away.

For this year’s scaled-down show, Eilish opted for a pale pink suit by her fave brand, Gucci, littered with glittery black tigers atop a gray floral print. If I do say so myself, this might be one of my favorite looks that she’s ever worn. It’s just so Billie, you know? The 19-year-old tends to keep her makeup looks pretty chill for awards shows, and tonight was no different. But there are two things that she didn’t miss out on this year—matching nails, a hat and a coordinating face mask. Safety first, y’all!

Eilish opted to wear a glittery black and green combo last year, and it looked like this year’s ‘fit followed suit—pun intended. I’m a fan of anything glittery and oversized, so this suit is of course being added to all my Pinterest boards.

Without being too dramatic, I would go so far as saying Eilish has single-handedly forced fashionistas to reimagine how a suit can look on the red carpet. Her day-to-day style is anything but ordinary, so why would her dressed-up looks be basic? Julia Roberts’ gray suit from 1990 walked so that Billie Eilish’s gray, pink and black tiger suit could run! And run, it has.

Oh, and Eilish didn’t just give us one look this year—she gave us two! Damn, she moves fast. For her performance of “Everything I Wanted” at the start of the show with brother Finneas, Eilish changed into a dark green glittery suit and a bejeweled hairpiece I’ve been thinking about ever since I saw it. The black gems really popped against her neon strands.

The singer has been at the top of her game when it comes to daring fashion choices since she first blew up. It’s not an exaggeration to say that Eilish owned the GRAMMYS last year, too! Sure, she and her brother/longtime producer Finneas took home a whopping five (!!) awards during the ceremony, but she also put almost every other gown on the red carpet to shame with her black Gucci suit. The lime green nails were just the icing on the sartorial cake.

These new looks only proves that, like fine wine, her closet does get better with age. I just can’t wait to see what she wears next year—especially now that she’s got another Record of the Year award under her belt!
