Billie Eilish has become more than just a millennial music poster child — the 18-year-old mega star is also considered a fashion influencer and a dedicated activist, advocating for animal rights and U.S. voting rights. Musically, however, Eilish kicked off the year with impressive wins at the Grammys, nabbing five major awards including Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Album. The awards also kept rolling in October when Eilish won Top Female Artist, Top New Artist and Top Album for her When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? project at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards. If that wasn’t enough, the “bad guy” songstress was also tapped for the new theme of the upcoming James Bond movie — she sings the title track “No Time to Die.”

Creatively, Eilish’s fashion sense has also been key to her success and her collaboration with Japanese artist Takashi Murakami and fast fashion brand Uniqlo thrusted the young influencer in the fashion spotlight. Additionally, global luxury brand Gucci also enlisted Eilish to take part in the brand’s first ever GucciFest — a digital fashion and film festival celebrating design and rising creatives. 2021 will also see a movie release on the influential star as it was announced in November that a documentary on Eilish titled, Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry will come out February next year on AppleTV+.
