As Paris Fashion Week is underway, there’s one photo that’s on everyone’s timeline. It’s Kanye and Julia Fox’s Parisian debut, donning full denim fits. Before that, it was the series of photographs published on Interview magazine, accompanied by an article Fox penned herself, detailing a whirlwind date with the rapper.
The internet has been at a frenzy since then, not dulled by the media storm surrounding other celebrity couples—among them Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker, and not least Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly’s romance. But it’s Julia Fox and Ye who are currently reigning the public sphere, mere days after their first meeting.
You might recognise her from Uncut Gems, but there’s more to know about Ye’s newest muse.
An artist first, Fox shares a nature to be provocative with Kanye, having used her own blood in canvases before.
She was born to an Italian mother and American father in Italy before moving to New York City at a young age, where she grew up.
She was discovered for her role in Uncut Gems while dining at a popular NYC café, Jack’s Wife Freda.
She’s married, but separated from, Peter Artemiev, a Brooklyn-based pilot, with whom she shares a one-year-old son. Fox once called out the father for being a ‘deadbeat dad’ on her Instagram.
Kanye and Fox met on New Years Eve in Miami.
