The youngest Big Four winner brought her gender-neutral style to the Grammys with a neon green, crystal-embellished Gucci bowling shirt and jogging pants.

Streetwear queen Billie Eilish brought her signature shade of neon green to the Grammys red carpet on Sunday. The "Bad Guy" singer donned a designer version of her go-to oversized top, trousers and sneakers combo — no surprise there.

The 18-year-old is not only setting records at the show (as the youngest winner in the big four categories), but she is also making an impact on the red carpet with her gender-less sense of style that defies old-fashioned and overly feminine norms.

At the Grammys, Eilish was head-to-toe in custom, crystal-embroidered Gucci with GG logoed jogging pants and a matching baggy bowling shirt, worn over a lime green turtleneck with puffed sleeves. She added emerald leather Flashtrek sneakers that were embellished with green crystals.

The Grammy winner and her stylist Samantha Burkhart accessorized with GG logoed fingerless gloves, dark micro sunglasses with rainbow lenses, gold Gucci earrings (one of which featured a gold lion head) and a black satin face mask tucked under her chin. Eilish's roots were freshly dyed in her bold hue, and she tossed on her own merch: a Blohsh sterling silver pendant with cubic zirconia stones that's shaped like a genderless human silhouette ($55).

As if it was too subtle, even her nails were printed with Gucci's logos. "A couple weeks ago I was like, I gotta do it," she said on the red carpet of the nails.

"They are sick. Look at this glamour," Eilish said. "I got to give credit to all the people I grew up admiring." She counted Tyler the Creator, Rihanna and Kanye West as her style icons. Brother Finneas O'Connell said, "She has the best sense of style of anyone I’ve ever met." 

In a Calvin Klein ad from May, Eilish explained that she prefers baggy apparel to avoid body shaming: "Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath. Nobody can be like, 'she’s slim-thick,' 'she’s not slim-thick,' 'she’s got a flat ass,' 'she’s got a fat ass.'"

At Spotify's Best New Artist Party on Thursday, Eilish also donned neon green to match her hair, wearing Gucci sunnies, Jordan 4 Retro Flyknit Volt sneakers and trousers, and a coat and top by Valentino designer Pierpaolo Piccioli (who created Lady Gaga's famous flamingo feather dress in Venice). 

Eilish upped her game this week in designer duds, having sported Louis Vuitton knock-offs by Imran Potato in the past, including at Coachella 2019. Less than one year later, she has the top fashion houses in the world designing to fit her cool-girl tastes. At the American Music Awards in November, she was in head-to-toe Burberry including a beekeeper bonnet. 

That's not to say the star doesn't doubt her sartorial statements. Eilish said onstage at the Spotify event, "I came out here like I was too cool and now I feel so fake. … That ain’t me. I look extra as fuck. This outfit is stupid." Well, it certainly set Eilish apart from the crowd.

Burkhart, meanwhile, endured a "logistics crisis" this week because, on Friday, she held fittings for Eilish's 24 dancers and Rosalía's 29 dancers for their Grammys performance looks, according to WWD.

Eilish received six nominations at the 2020 Grammy Awards.
