As Fox says, “I’m not going for sexy. I’m going for unhinged.”
Julia Fox’s controversial take on street style fashion is the gift that keeps on giving. Not only does Fox have a wild interpretation of what constitutes an outfit, but she’s one of the few celebs who consistently serves up looks that are high in shock value and style. Love it or hate it, Fox’s street style is second to none. Sure, we’re not exactly rushing to recreate her most iconic outfits, but you’ve got to admire her commitment to one-of-a-kind, always extra, never boring personal style.
One of the best parts of the Uncut Gems actor’s approach to fashion is that she doesn’t take herself too seriously. As a guest judge on Season 20 of Project Runway, Fox was remarkably self-aware when describing her aesthetic, saying “I’m not going for sexy. I’m going for unhinged.” We say mission accomplished.
Whether she’s attending a Fashion Week show or going for a stroll through N.Y.C., Fox is more interested in pushing fashion boundaries than chasing trends. What’s more, she pays zero mind to her haters. Suffice it to say, no one who rolls up to a Cannes red carpet channeling a naked emo clown is looking for anyone’s approval.
In celebration of our favorite boundary-pushing fashionista, we’ve rounded up 15 of Fox’s most delightfully unhinged street-style looks. Buckle up folks, because Fox’s greatest fashion hits will have you asking yourself, what even is an outfit?
For Fox, this sleek two-piece matching set is practically demure. This streamlined look is perfectly balanced thanks to its gunmetal metallic accessories that pick up the shine of the skirt and top’s sculpted cut-outs and high-shine ruffles. 10 out of 10, no notes.
Saran Wrap, But Make It Fashion
Our girl loves herself some translucency. A fan of totally sheer ‘fits both on and off the red carpet, Fox stuck to the plastic wrap theme by pairing her jump-ring latex mini dress with a shrink-wrapped bag and lucite platform heels to match.
Over- and Under-Sized Separates
Fox isn’t just a lover of fashion. She genuinely gets it. For example: This slouchy menswear-style blazer and undone overalls have all the best qualities of oversized clothes. Paired with her itty-bitty matching bra top, it’s a lesson in silhouette-mixing.
The Recycled Waistband Dress
Move over, poodle skirts. We’re all about Fox’s poodle dress from Wiederhoeft’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection. If you didn’t already know by now, Fox showcases her sense of humor through her clothes, as this whimsical sequin dress proves.
The Tie Top
Although she often blurs (or flat-out disregards) the lines between mainstream costume and fetish wear, this is by far her most explicitly subculture-inspired street style ‘fit. She may be wearing a literal horsetail, but Fox still manages to give us capital-F fashion, thanks to the Thom Browne fox bag.
The Belt Miniskirt
Leave it to Fox to turn yet another accessory into a wardrobe staple. Much like her tube top made entirely of ties, her miniskirt made entirely of belts does meet the technical requirements of a skirt while making that viral Miu Miu micro-mini skirt look matronly in comparison.
Car Wash Chic
One of our favorite elements of Fox’s street style is her attention to detail. This structured mini dress might be made entirely of belts, but the slight twist and volume at its thigh-skimming hemline offer an entirely different vibe than her belts-as-a-mini-skirt look. We’re just saying, girl’s got range.
Garbage Bag Couture
Fox is a fan of latex. She’s also a pro at finding ‘fits that do remarkable things with the material, like this gorgeous draped midi dress and matching jacket. Ever the fashion rule-breaker, Fox completed the black ensemble with brown boots — gasp! — and a butterfly mask. Because why not?
An Entire Belt Outfit
After donning belts as a skirt and belts as a dress, Fox doubled down on her accessories-as-clothes hack by wearing a Diesel miniskirt and a tube top constructed entirely of belts. Fun fact: The look is a favorite of Fox’s too.
Thigh-High Hot Fuzz
Don’t fret: No Sasquatches were harmed in the making of Fox’s supersized monster-pelt boots and matching bag. At least, we don’t think they were. To balance out the bulk of her thigh-high boots, Fox opted to keep her top ultra-cropped.
The Condom Tube Top
Fox is no stranger to nearly nude dresses or barely there ‘fits, but she also appreciates a well constructed garment, whether it’s made from leather or — in the case of this top, boots, and bag — condoms. We tip our hats to Fox, the only celeb we know who can make contraception look high-fashion.
A “Body Bag” as a Purse
One of fashion’s oldest “rules” is making sure to match your accessories to your outfit, but Fox gave new meaning to the concept by carrying a literal body (double). The blonde wig is disconcerting, but you have to admire Fox’s commitment to a theme (and her upper body strength).
