When the ball dropped on 2022, it suddenly felt like Julia Fox appeared out of nowhere. All of the sudden, the Italian-born actress went from “that girl in
Uncut Gems” to Kanye West’s post-Kim Kardashian girlfriend, and Fox became ubiquitous. Many assumed it would be a flash in the pan, and once she and West broke up, Fox would return to her New York city niche fame, but that hasn’t been the case. With Fox’s no-cares-given attitude and heavy handed eye makeup application, the podcast host has been able to stay in the cultural zeitgeist. These days, Fox has been enjoying fashion-filled strolls through New York, Los Angeles, and various European cities, showing off her unique style, which tends to feature leather, latex, and a whole lot of skin. A scroll through her red carpets of the past, though, proves she solidified that signature style long ago, and has been honing it ever since.
