Kanye West and Julia Fox made their official couple debut at Men’s Fashion Week in Paris on Sunday as the duo attended the Kenzo Fall/Winter 2022 runway. Fox was photographed wearing earrings and a denim jacket from Daniel Roseberry’s Schiaparelli which featured a 3D cone bra detailing. The low-slung jeans were courtesy of the designer’s personal wardrobe and the boots were pulled from the new Diesel collection.
If you would recall, the look is not dissimilar from an iteration of Jean Paul Gaultier’s bras also worn by Madonna on her 1990 “Blonde Ambition” tour. Given the pair were seen partying together in January (and the fact Fox is set to play Madonna’s best friend in an upcoming biopic) surely this is an ode to the Queen of Pop.
As for West, he paired a Balenciaga padded denim jacket with matching jeans and gumboot-esque shoes from footwear brand, Red Wing.
As night fell in Paris, Fox and West stepped out once again in a more polarising leather moment. With the same slicked hair and smudged black eyeliner, the cult actress donned a one-shouldered coral gown, silver thigh-high boots and coat from Rick Owens. West also wore a look by the Paris-based designer, but er, we can’t explain the creepy contact lenses.
While the jury may still be out on this controversial couple (Fox has assured fans the relationship is not a “PR stunt”) Twitter is harking back to Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake’s own double denim moment. And yes, they did it way better if you ask us. “Britney and Justin did it better,” one user tweeted. Another disagreed and posted, “Britney and Justin walked so Ye and Julia could run.”
The beloved ’00s couple (who went on to garner plenty of their own controversy years later) attended the American Music Awards in 2001 with Spears wearing a patchwork-style denim gown. Timberlake opted for a wide-brim cowboy’s hat and denim blazer bedazzled with tiny blue diamandes.
It’s a celeb’s world and we’re just living it.
