Everything you need to know about Julia Fox and her unusual date night with Kanye West.
Kanye West met Julia Fox at a New Year’s Eve party in Miami.
“He had me and my friends laughing, dancing, and smiling all night,” she wrote in an article for Interview Magazine titled, “Date Night”. The pair then, “decided to keep the energy going and fly back to New York City to see Slave Play.”
But, Julia Fox writing an article about her second date with West wasn’t the strangest part. The date that unfolded in New York City was unconventional, but, very classic Kanye; considering, the flower walls and custom Birkin bags he had made in the name of Kim Kardashian.
West had a hotel room full of clothes waiting for the Uncut Gems actress. There were 40 full looks prepared for her from Diesel’s Spring 2022 runway collection and its Pre-Fall 2022 lineup. Fox kept 6 of the outfits. West also directed a photoshoot for her in the middle of Carbone, Fox’s favourite restaurant, while guests dined.
If you’re feeling déjà vu it might be because this is eerily similar to the makeover Kim Kardashian’s received when she started dating West. Perhaps, styling is his love language.
Kim recently thanked Kanye for the doors he opened for her in the fashion industry during her acceptance speech for Fashion Icon People’s Choice Award.
“Thank you Zac Posen, who dressed me and took me to my first CFDA Awards, and so many amazing designers like Riccardo [Tisci] and Olivier [Rousteing] that really believed in me. Well, [they] probably [were] talked into it by getting a call from Kanye,” Kardashian joked.
Kanye and Kim are still in the process of divorcing.
Now it seems Kanye’s new muse is Julia Fox, but, what do we know about her besides her role in Uncut Gems?
Julia was born outside of Milian, Italy to an Italian mother and American father. She and her family later moved to New York City.
In New York City, she and her parents would stay in the latest home her father was renovated. Fox moved around a lot and often opted to stay with friends.
While staying at a friend’s house during high school, she was introduced to the idea of sex work by her friend’s older sister. “She would look at herself in the mirror, with the fish-nets and the PVC and the platforms,” Fox said in an interview with The New Yorker. “And, in the back of my mind, I always knew it was an option.”
In her last her of high school, “[she] answered a Craigslist ad, when they still had the adult section, and [she] biked over after school and got the job”.
Julia Fox is also an artist, who’s work is as interesting as she is. In 2017, her show curated by Richie Shazam, “R.I.P. Julia Fox,” featured illustrations painted with her own blood.
“I extracted the blood with a syringe and used the syringe to paint on the silk,” Fox said in an interview with HuffPost “It wasn’t as bad as it seems.”
