In a recent Vanity Fair video, Julia Fox addressed rumors of Kim Kardashian taking style inspiration from her. Fox, the author of “Down the Drain,” expressed her admiration for Kardashian but remained diplomatic about the similarities in their outfits. While both celebrities have sported similar looks over the years, Fox believes that it is merely a result of both following current trends.
Fox revealed that she has been a fan of Kim Kardashian since the early days of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” Despite any criticism thrown at Kardashian, Fox has always defended her. However, when asked if she believed Kardashian had been inspired by her style, the model admitted that there have been some resemblances, although she believes it is more about following trends rather than deliberate mimicry.
Both Julia Fox and Kim Kardashian have been seen wearing similar outfits on multiple occasions. For instance, in 2021, Fox wore the same sheer Jean Paul Gaultier illusion dress that Kardashian had previously worn to the 2018 E! People’s Choice Awards. Additionally, they have both been spotted in designs by Alexander Wang, Versace, and Balenciaga. These resemblances have sparked speculation about whether Kardashian draws inspiration from Fox’s fashion choices.
In her memoir, Fox revealed that Kardashian played a significant role in her split from Kanye West. The model claimed that West had a conversation with Kardashian, during which he learned information about Fox that contributed to their breakup. According to Fox, Kardashian allegedly referred to her as a former “drug addict.” Fox had already disclosed her past struggles with addiction to West, highlighting a lack of communication between them.
Both Fox and Kardashian have explored the world of acting. Fox praised Kardashian for her performance in “American Horror Story,” calling her a multi-talented queen. This shared interest in acting further emphasizes the similarities between the two celebrities.
In the Vanity Fair video, Fox discussed her unique fashion choices. She revealed that her secret to pulling off uncomfortable outfits is knowing that the resulting photos will be extraordinary. The promise of a major fashion moment is what keeps her motivated. Throughout the segment, Fox showcased her bold and daring style, demonstrating her fearless approach to fashion.
During the interview, Fox also shared a shoplifting story from her teenage years. She admitted to getting “permanently banned” from Bloomingdale’s for shoplifting. She would visit a high-end department store on Fifth Avenue during sales, dressed inconspicuously in a Juicy Couture sweatsuit. Fox confessed to discreetly placing stolen items in her pants. Her most valuable stolen item was an Oscar de la Renta snakeskin clutch, which she still keeps.
While Julia Fox acknowledges the similarities in style between herself and Kim Kardashian, she believes that it is more a result of both following current trends rather than Kardashian directly drawing inspiration from her. Fox’s admiration for Kardashian, coupled with their shared interests and fashion choices, creates a fascinating dynamic between the two celebrities. As both continue to make headlines for their fashion statements and personal lives, their paths may cross again in the future, creating even more intrigue for fans and fashion enthusiasts alike.
