Watch: Billie Eilish Sneaks Star-Studded Bathroom Selfie at 2023 Met Gala

We can't stop staring at this Met Gala bathroom selfie.

Billie Eilish kept the time-honored tradition alive by unveiling a covert photo from inside the 2023 Met Gala. The singer, 21, posed with Elle Fanning, Maya Hawke and Halle Bailey in the museum's restrooms, where celebs have traditionally snuck some epic group selfies

Wearing a sultry black outfit from Simone Rocha, Billie held up her phone in front of the bathroom mirror to capture Maya with her tongue out, while also showcasing signs posted in the facilities warning guests that no smoking and no vaping is allowed. 

Metropolitan Museum of Art curator Andrew Bolton—along with Vogue editor and Met Gala mastermind Anna Wintourtouched on that strict rule during a recent interview with CBS, saying that one way to not get invited back to the glamorous event is by smoking inside or touching the artwork. 

Another rule that Anna has instituted? The no selfie policy, with a Vogue source telling Pret-a-Reporter in 2015 that a notice had been sent to all Met Gala guests that year to inform them: "The use of phones for photography and social media will not be permitted inside the gala."

Met Gala 2023: The Best Dressed Stars

Of course, stars have gone rogue numerous times. That same year, Kendall Jenner made headlines for her stunning pic with fellow models Behati PrinslooCara Delevingne, Emily Ratajkowski, Zoe Kravitz and Bella Hadid, who was later photographed smoking on the bathroom floor at the 2017 bash.


Also in 2017 was Kylie Jenner's giant bathroom group selfie, with cameos from Kim Kardashian, Paris Jackson, Brie Larson, Frank Ocean, Lily Aldridge, A$AP Rocky, Elizabeth Chambers, Sean "Diddy" Combs and Kendall.

Needless to say, Billie's bathroom selfie six years later has made fans happier than ever.

Bradley Cooper & Irina Shayk

Who says exes can't be friends? The A Star Is Born actor and the model—who split in 2019 but have remained on good terms—chatted at the star-studded soirée, with him wearing a classic tuxedo and her donning a Yohji Yamamoto gown.

Usher, Pete Davidson & Kim Kardashian

And they weren't the only exes to run into each other at the gala. Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson, who split last summer, also caught up at the Met Gala. The Kardashians star, who wore Schiaparelli, and the Saturday Night Live alum, who donned Fendi, chatted with Usher, who sported Bianca Saunders, inside the event.

Gigi Hadid & Lizzo

How good of a time were the model and the recording artist having? You could say it was good as hell.

Anne Hathaway & Jared Leto

From WeCrashed to WeReunite. The former co-stars (her in Versace and him in a cat suit as a tribute to Karl Lagerfeld's cat Choupette) were all smiles when they ran into each other at the event.

Jimmy Fallon & Jared Leto

And The Tonight Show host had nothing but love for the Oscar winner's ensemble.

Robert Pattinson & Suki Waterhouse

From Breaking Dawn to breaking out some stellar fashion. The Twilight alum and the Daisy Jones & The Six actress were a stylish pair as they rocked Dior Men and Fendi looks, respectively. And while Pattinson and Waterhouse tend to keep their romance private, they weren't afraid to show some PDA at the gala.

Brittney Griner & Dwyane Wade

The basketball stars' looks for the evening were a total slam dunk, with her in a Calvin Klein suit and him in Prada.

Sienna Miller & Emily Blunt

Just like Mary Poppins, this photo of the actresses is practically perfect in every way. Miller wore Gucci while Blunt donned Michael Kors.

Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Jared Leto & Kylie Jenner

How do you score a seat at this table?

Doja Cat & Cardi B

There's only one word for this photo of the "Say So" star, who also paid tribute to Choupette in her Oscar de la Renta gown, and the "Bodak Yellow" artist, who wore Richard Quinn: purrrrfection.

Brian Tyree Henry, Vanessa Hudgens, Kerry Washington & Lea Michele

We're all in this (star-studded pic) together.

Hugh Jackman & Pedro Pascal

Just a Wolverine and Mandalorian discussing who is more powerful of the two.

Keke Palmer, Quinta Brunson & Yara Shahidi

The Nope star, the Abbott Elementary creator and the Grown-ish actress dazzle in this snap.

Cara Delevingne

The model, who wore a Karl Lagerfeld design, is never afraid to do what it takes to work the best angle and get the perfect shot.

Jimmy Fallon, Gigi Hadid & Karen Elson

While fashion is no laughing matter, we can't help but wonder what these three were chuckling about.

Nnamdi Asomugha & Kerry Washington

The actor and the Scandal star enjoyed a date night at the Met Gala 2023.
