This is how Julia Fox won the blue carpet at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party.
The Uncut Gems star, who made headlines earlier this year for his brief romance with Kanye West, arrived at the A-list shindig in a black dress that featured hands around her neck and a purse made of “real human hair” — or at least she thinks so. “It looks like it,” she said of the shaggy accessory.
Fox credited her look to Balenciaga and a Hans, whose “last name is German and I can’t pronounce.” Catt Sadler, the co-host of the party’s carpet coverage, remarked that the dress was sure to inspire some jokes about Will Smith’s now-infamous slap. “Oh my god, I’m going to get roasted for this tomorrow,” said Fox with a laugh. “The comments are going to be ridiculous. But, you know what, I’m having fun and that’s all that matters.”
Speaking of having some fun, the former model shared a similar sentiment when asked about her tabloid-centric relationship with West and whether they’re still on good terms following their split in Feb. after a month of dating.
“Yeah, I’d like to think so,” admitted Fox. “I’m young, I was coming out of the pandemic, coming out of being a single mom, and I just want to have some fun, and, like, rejoin society, and pop out, have a moment. Have a few moments!”
We’d bet the house that she just had another.
