Julia Fox gives her and Kanye West a cringeworthy couple’s nickname
Julia Fox is continuing to follow in the steps of Kim Kardashian — this time by way of a couple’s nickname.
The “Uncut Gems” star posted a paparazzo’s photo of her and Kanye West wearing their matching leather ensembles at Paris Fashion Week, writing on her Instagram Story Monday, “Juliye 🖤.”
If they weren’t official before, they certainly are now, as nothing makes a Hollywood couple more legit than the combining of names à la Bennifer, Brangelina and, of course, Kimye.
Fox, 31, has been inspired by the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” alum, 41, in more ways than just a nickname: We’d obviously be remiss in failing to mention 44-year-old West’s total takeover of the fashion of both his estranged wife and current girlfriend.
Kardashian and the “Forbidden Fruits” podcast co-host have stepped out in the same silver Balenciaga thigh-high boots as well as Jean Paul Gaultier’s “body morphing” frock on the red carpet.
“Kanye’s doing with Julia what he did to Kim,” a Kardashian source recently told Page Six. “He’s controlling what she wore — making sure she appears as the set image that he has in his mind.”
Fox met Kanye over New Year’s, and the rapper wined and dined her at Carbone in Miami and dressed her in the latest fashions from Diesel. She recounted their first dates — saying they had an “instant connection” — in a diary-style entry for Interview magazine that featured PDA-heavy photos of the lovebirds.
While West’s influence on Fox is abundantly clear, she also made it known that she’s been following the Skims founder for years, dubbing herself as a “die-hard, OG fan” of Kardashian and her siblings.
“I wanted them to be my family … You feel like you know them,” Fox said of watching “KUWTK” when it first premiered.
