Billie Eilish Wore Oscar de la Renta Dress at The Met Gala Only If They Stopped Using Fur

ICYMI: Billie Eilish attended the Met Gala this year in an Oscar de la Renta gown however under one condition that the designer would stop using fur.

"It was an honor to wear this dress knowing that going forward Oscar de la Renta will be completely fur-free!!!!" Eilish, who co-chaired the gala, wrote on Instagram.

The 19-year-old said she is beyond thrilled that creative directors Fernando J. Garcia and Laura Kim, as well as the whole Oscar de la Renta, team heard her on this issue "and have now made a change that makes an impact for the greater good, not only for animals but also for our planet and environment too."

"I'm honored to have been a catalyst and to have been heard on this matter," her post continued. "I urge all designers to do the same."
