Kanye West obviously has a type.
The rapper and fashion force notably remodeled ex Kim Kardashian’s wardrobe when the duo commenced dating in 2012, tossing her bandage dresses and huge designer totes to make way for the sleek, boring styles that still define her look to this day.
And now that West and Julia Fox are an item, it appears the “Uncut Gems” actress is getting a makeover of her own, with her new beau treating her to racks of Diesel duds and hurrying her off to Paris Fashion Week.
“Kanye’s doing with Julia what he did to Kim,”
a Kardashian source newly told Page Six.
“He’s controlling what she wore — making sure she appears as the set image that he has in his mind.”
Nonetheless in fact, 44-year-old West might not have to work much at all to remodel Fox, 31, into the woman of his dreams. A self-avowed “die-hard, OG” fan of the Kardashians, Fox appears to have been taking cues from the Skims founder’s closet for years; the two bodacious brunettes have even stepped out individually wearing the exact same outfit on numerous occasions.
Below, all the matching up moments that prove that while Fox and West may be
she and Kardashian are style twins.
Kardashian, 41, paired a black latex Atsuko Kudo bustier with a sheer, shimmering Ralph & Russo Couture skirt for the 2014 GQ Men of the Year Awards with West. Although Fox might’ve opted for different designers at the Toronto Film Festival premiere of “Uncut Gems” in 2019 — Paco Rabanne, to be accurate — there’s no contradicting the similarities between their styles.
The KKW Fragrance originator took Alexander Wang’s lacy black onesie for a spin in January 2019; that December, Fox picked the same sexy, skirted style for the GQ Men of the Year Awards.
Any real style star knows you haven’t made it until you’ve got access to top designers’ archives. Kardashian and Fox both seem to be fans of vintage Versace in particular, having picked harmonious black gowns with diving necklines and slit skirts for the 2019 amfAR Gala New York and a 2020 Golden Globes afterparty, respectively.
In 2014, Kardashian’s uniform became a Max Mara coat layered over a matching body-con dress. Fox went for the same fashion formula at the 2020 Whitney Art Party, selecting a look from the brand in bright, charming blue.
Long before associating up with West, Fox emptied down to her Skims to promote the brand’s Summer Mesh collection in 2020.
Getting dizzy? bearing in mind that both Kardashian and Fox have rocked Jean Paul Gaultier’s “body morphing” frock on the red carpet — the former at the 2018 People’s Choice Awards, the latter at a 2021 Christian Louboutin party — we couldn’t blame you.
Remember when West emailed Kardashian educating her to ditch her large shades in 2018? It seems KKW’s still all about tiny sunglasses — and so is Fox. Two months after Kardashian posed on Instagram in a glossy leather Balenciaga look complemented with narrow frames in November 2021, the actress had a “Matrix” moment of her own.
You can’t hang with West without wearing Balenciaga, the Grammy winner’s luxury label of choice. And Fox took things a literal step further n the process of Paris Fashion Week in January 2022, slipping into the very same pair of thigh-high silver boots Kardashian’s been snapped in since 2016.
