She’s just getting started in the music scene following her mainstream success last year. On Sunday, 18-year-old Billie Eilish has made Grammy history as the youngest artist to sweep all four major Grammy categories in one night.

The American singer-songwriter won Record of the Year and Song of the Year for Bad Guy, Best New Artist, and Album of the Year for When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?

Billie has also become the first female artist and the second person in history to win the top four categories in the same year. Christopher Cross was the first artist to win the big four Grammy awards in 1981.

In addition, Billie is also the youngest recipient of Album of the Year. The record was previously held by Taylor Swift, who won the coveted award in 2010 when she was 20 for her album, Fearless.

Billie also won Best Pop Vocal Album, taking home five Grammys out of her six nominations.

However, during her acceptance speech for Album of the Year, Billie told the crowd that Ariana Grande should’ve won the award. “Can I just say I think Ariana deserves this. Thank U, Next… I think it deserves more than anything in the world. I love you so much.”

Billie arrived at the ceremony wearing her signature oversized style. She opted for head-to-toe Gucci, which included a black crystal-embellished co-ord decked out with crystal monogram.

Recently paid $25 million for the right to a documentary about her life, Billie also wore a neon green diamante-detailed turtleneck sweater underneath her pajama-style outfit.

Billie’s beauty look was hardly visible through her face mask and sunnies. Makeup artist Robert Rumsey simply highlighted her features with brushed up brows, mascara, shimmery eyeshadow, matte bronzer, and a swipe of rosy lip gloss.

Hairstylist Mara Roszak styled her coordinating green and black tresses in layers, falling loosely on her shoulders.

She had her nails painted in green with a Gucci monogram to match her ensemble. It reportedly took manicurist Emi Kudo four hours to achieve this look!

Stylist Samantha Burkhart completed Billie’s Gucci ensemble with gold Gucci logo hoop earrings and a pair of Gucci ‘Flashtrek’ sneakers.

Billie was joined by her brother, Finneas Baird O’Connell, on the red carpet.

Like his sister, he also wore Gucci. The 22-year-old songwriter/musician looked handsome in a black floral-embroidered coat with a white shirt underneath, a bow tie, black trousers, and leather shoes.
