Kanye West clearly has a type.
The rapper and fashion force revamped ex Kim Kardashian’s wardrobe when the duo started dating in 2012, ditching her bandage dresses and bulky designer bags to make way for the sleek, monochromatic styles that define still her look to this day.
And now that West and Julia Fox are an item, it looks like the “Uncut Gems” actress is getting a makeover, with her new pal treating her to racks of Diesel duds and taking her to Paris Fashion Week.
“Kanye is doing to Julia what he did to Kim,” a Kardashian source recently told Page Six. “He controls what she wore – making sure she comes across as the still image he has in his mind.”
But in fact, West, 44, might not have much to do to turn Fox, 31, into the woman of his dreams. A self-proclaimed “diehard, OG” Kardashian fan, Fox seems to have been drawing inspiration from the Skims founder’s closet for years; the two bodacious brunettes even stepped out separately wearing the exact same outfit on multiple occasions.
Below, all the pairing moments that prove that while Fox and West may be “kindred spirits,” she and Kardashian are style twins.
Kardashian, 41, paired an Atsuko Kudo black latex bustier top with a sheer and glittery Ralph & Russo Couture skirt for the 2014 GQ Men of the Year Awards with West. While Fox may have opted for different designers at the 2019 Toronto Film Festival premiere of “Uncut Gems” — Paco Rabanne, to be specific — there’s no denying the similarities between their styles.
The KKW Fragrance founder tried on Alexander Wang’s black lace jumpsuit in January 2019; In December, Fox chose the same sexy style and skirt for the GQ Men of the Year Awards.
Any true style star knows you haven’t succeeded until you have access to the archives of top designers. Kardashian and Fox both seem to be fans of vintage Versace in particular, having chosen like-minded black dresses with plunging necklines and slit skirts for the 2019 amfAR gala in New York and a 2020 Golden Globes afterparty, respectively.
monochrome Max Mara
In 2014, Kardashian’s uniform became a Max Mara coat layered over a matching bodycon dress. Fox went with the same fashion formula at the 2020 Whitney Art Party, choosing a branded look in a bright, eye-catching blue.
Long before teaming up with West, Fox stripped down to promote the brand’s 2020 Summer Mesh collection.
Scared of heights ? Considering Kardashian and Fox both wore Jean Paul Gaultier’s “body morphing” dress 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 asking her to ditch her oversized sunglasses in 2018? It looks like KKW is still focused on tiny sunglasses – just like Fox. Two months after Kardashian posed on Instagram in a shiny leather Balenciaga look accessorized with narrow frames in November 2021, the actress had her own “Matrix” moment.
You can’t hang out with West without wearing Balenciaga, the Grammy winner’s luxury brand of choice. And Fox went one step further during Paris Fashion Week in January 2022, donning the same pair of silver thigh-high boots Kardashian has worn since 2016.
