Billie Eilish Convinces Oscar de la Renta to Go Fur-Free

The singer wore an Oscar de la Renta gown to the Met Gala after the brand agreed to ditch all fur sales.

If you were swooning over Billie Eilish’s Met Gala dress last night, you’re not the only one! The vegan singer graced the red carpet in a peach Oscar de la Renta dress that was absolutely stunning. But the best part of the outfit wasn’t the Marilyn Monroe-inspired look or the 15-foot train cascading down a dozen steps behind her. It was the fact that, by wearing the dress, Billie Eilish convinced Oscar de la Renta to go fur-free … indefinitely!

Oscar de la Renta Agrees to Cease All Fur Sales

Billie Eilish has been a vegan and animal rights activist for years, and she’s always doing her part to make sure she uses her voice to stand up for animal rights. When she showed up at the Met Gala last night wearing a vegan silk-free peach tulle dress by Oscar de la Renta, it was more than just a fashion statement.

The singer agreed to wear the dress only after she convinced the brand to completely remove fur from their line. While the brand removed fur from the runway a few years ago, they have continued to sell it in stores. But, after the clever ultimatum from Eilish, the top names at Oscar de la Renta agreed to cease all fur sales.

This comes after years and countless pleas from activists for the brand to ditch the fur, without success. Billie Eilish shared in an Instagram post: “I’m honored to have been a catalyst and to have been heard on this matter. I urge all designers to do the same.” Three cheers to Eilish for using her voice to stand up for animal rights (and for looking absolutely gorgeous in the process!).

Vegan Dinner Menu at the Met Gala

Eilish’s dress wasn’t the only thing vegan at this year’s Met Gala. The entire dinner menu was plant-based with a focus on sustainability. The vegan dinner menu at the Met Gala was created by ten of New York’s up-and-coming chefs and featured dishes like watermelon tarts, creamy barley with roasted maitake mushrooms, and apple mousse.
