Julia Fox has made 2022 her own and we do not see anyone complaining about it. From getting into a relationship with Kanye West and being his muse for six weeks to taking over the internet with her iconic eye make-up and edgy style, the Uncut Gems star has had one of her biggest moments in the spotlight.

So, why exactly is the internet so obsessed with Fox? We’ve broken it down for you.

Her Role In Uncut Gems

Fox walked straight into the limelight after her 2019 movie, Uncut Gems, where she starred alongside Adam Sandler, LaKeith Stanfield, and Idina Menzel. Directed by Josh and Benny Safdie, Fox plays the role of Julia De Fiore, Sandler’s character Howard Ratner’s girlfriend. In fact, during a podcast interview, Fox revealed that she was Josh Safdie’s muse when he wrote Uncut Gems, which soon blew up on the internet with not only fans but also celebrities lip-syncing to the audio. A true internet moment of the era.

Her Short Yet Eventful Relationship With Kanye West

Fox and Ye’s whirlwind romance made headlines when they officially started seeing each other earlier this year. The former couple met at a New Year’s Eve party in Miami and instantly found a connection. While Ye was having a public fallout with ex-wife Kim Kardashian while they discussed divorce, just six days later he appeared in a PDA-filled photoshoot for Interview Magazine with Fox. Soon after, the two were seen taking on fashion week, where they recreated the iconic denim-on-denim couple moment. They even celebrated Fox’s birthday together, where West gifted every single one of Fox’s friends a Hermès Birkin. Sadly, their relationship lasted for only six weeks, but it’s safe to say that Kanye’s styling and aura rubbed off on the Uncut Gems star.

Her Effortless Style

After her very public breakup with Ye, Fox took over the reins of her fashion game and started blessing us with some unusually unique style and beauty looks. From her self-done over-the-top black lids to her exceptionally low-waist bottoms, Fox is creating a stir in the fashion and beauty-verse without even realising it.

She Is Always Unapologetically Herself

What’s endearing about Fox is how unapologetically real she is. Whether it’s talking about her work, relationships or even her mental health, Fox has always believed in sharing the truth, and herself, on every platform. Recently, on TikTok, Fox spoke about how she’s struggling with OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder) and ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) while trying to manage her career and take care of her child. Even after being a constant target of memes and trolls, the actor doesn’t let it affect her— something we all need to learn from her.

So, if you’ve had enough of the celebrities you follow on social media, we would recommend obsessing over Fox., it’s refreshing.
