Somehow, Julia Fox Found a Way to Wear Less Clothing

Julia Fox is gonna be famous on her own terms, dammit. If the best way to channel international attention is by staging paparazzi photo shoots with borderline NSFW outfits, then she’s gonna air it all out; if you can air out anything while wrapped in skintight leather scraps.

The Uncut Gems actress has made a habit of this kind of shoot since separating from former beau Kanye, getting professional shutterbugs to lens her DIY experiments and giant platform boots.

Not that Julia Fox needs to proposition anyone to pay attention to her: it feels like the pop culture world at large will do it for free. No such thing as bad press.

At this point, I think I’ve gone full 360 on Fox appreciation, from “Good for her!” when she lived “every girl’s dream” by being dressed in Diesel by Ye to cringing at her support of Marilyn Manson and ongoing friendship with problematic designer Alexander Wang to, honestly, just vibing with her DGAF outfits and insane eye makeup.

In life, you’re either the person wearing the leather loincloth or gawking at the person who is. And, I gotta admit, I admire anyone bold enough to do the former as many times as Fox has.

Back to today. On August 11, Fox responded to New York’s 87°F weather with an outfit that’s almost not even an outfit.

That is, if your definition of an outfit includes clothing that covers the human body, then Fox only barely meets that.

It’s weird, because Fox is only revealing slightly more skin than she would be if she was wearing a bikini, but the fact that it’s leather, with chunks of metal interspersed throughout, makes the entire “outfit” that much more salacious.

Fox’s ensemble really isn’t anything more than a couple straps of leather entwined around warped metal rings, which she wore with see-through stilettos and a tiny Balenciaga bag.

If you can look beyond the clothes, which isn’t hard because they barely exist, you can see that Fox is still experimenting with her makeup.

Gone are the raccoon eyes, her eponymous “Fox Eye,” and here comes a hollowed-out cat or wing eye, depending on your definition. Not quite as internet-breaking but definitely serves to heighten the intentionally costume-y feel that Fox was going for.

If anything’s more impressive than Julia Fox’s confidence, it’s that she continues finding new ways to just barely avoid full-exposure.

Let’s not forget her ultra-low-rise pants from the other week, which superhumanly defied gravity long enough to keep above Fox’s pubis.

Point being, Fox has more than proven her mettle. Staged or not, these paparazzi shoots are only escalating in outrageousness and, amidst uncertain times, it’s nice to be able to count on someone to deliver the, well, whatever Julia Fox is delivering.

Especially once the weather takes a turn for the chilly, it’ll become that much more challenging for Fox to keep up this cat-and-mouse game between her cut-out clothes and the few parts of her lower torso that’ve remained only slightly covered.

But it’ll be worth it to keep those fifteen minutes ticking. And, frankly, I’m happy to stay onboard Fox’s bandwagon in the meanwhile.


Latest Humble Bundle includes most of the Resident Evil back catalog

Now is a good moment to catch up on the Resident Evil series ahead of next year's RE4 remake. Humble is offering a "Decades of Horror" bundle that includes most Resident Evil games for PC. Spend enough to get the full 11-game collection and you'll play remastered and remade versions of the first three titles, the existing versions of RE4 through RE7, and side games like the Revelations series and RE0. You'll also receive a 50 percent off coupon for Resident Evil Village if you want to start on it before its first DLC arrives.

You can pay as little as $1 for a three-item pack that includes the original Resident Evil, Revelations and the first episode of Revelations 2. An in-between six-game bundle includes RE1, RE0, RE5, RE6, Revelations and Revelations 2 Deluxe Edition. As usual, you can pay extra to contribute more of your purchase to charity.

The bundle comes on the heels of Netflix's live-action TV series. There are clearly some gaps dictated largely by platform support — you won't find Code Veronica, alas. All the same, this could easily be worth the investment if you're new to Capcom's survival horror series or just want to fill out your collection.

Remote-Controlled Robots Could Perform Surgeries in Space

Slated to board the International Space Station in 2024, MIRA—which stands for Miniaturized In-Vivo Robotic Assistance—is a remote-controlled surgical robot created by Virtual Incision Corporation, a Nebraska-based medical technology company that recently signed a contract with NASA. The robot is purported to perform medical surgeries by being remotely guided from Earth, a service that could provide longterm help aboard deep space missions. MIRA is uniquely …

10 of the Best Sneakers to Cop for Less than Retail Today

stockx below retail

We have a selection of categories that we check regularly, and a number of them reside on the pages of StockX. Our favorite at the moment is the StockX Below Retail category.

We’ve become so accustomed to resale sites offering sold-out releases for wildly inflated prices that we didn’t think this was possible, but the category is stacked with releases that are available on the secondary market for less than their original retail price.

We know what you’re thinking — it’ll only be the releases that nobody else wanted, the overhyped, underperforming drops that never quite made it. Not true. To prove that this is not true, we’ve put together a list of 10 sneakers from the StockX Below Retail category.

Ranging from Travis Scott collaborations through to seminal YEEZY drops and Rick Owens collaborations, the list should be your nudge to dive head first into the StockX Below Retail selection today.

Nike and Stüssy are long-time collaborators and never miss the mark. With the duo about to release the latest Air Max 2013 collaboration, we thought it was high time to revisit one of their best projects in recent years: the Air Force 1 Mid features a distinctive Fossil-hued canvas upper and we’re a sucker for an unusual Air Force 1 Mid.

On the heels of YEEZY Day, several YEEZY silhouettes are looking sparkly new. One such silhouette is the YEEZY Boost 700 V2 Static. This understated take on the chunky sneaker is one of the easiest YEEZYs to style in your everyday life. Catch it soon & you’ll secure a pair for $25 below retail.

The StockX Below Retail category isn’t only useful for bagging collaborations and limited releases. You can also find some serious general-release gems in the mix like this New Balance 530. The Steel Grey colorway isn’t over-the-top but leaves an impact with its metallic overlays.

Rick Owens has made no secret of the fact that Converse Chuck Taylors have played a major role in inspiring his luxury silhouettes. It’s only natural that the Prince of Darkness connected with Converse, then. Rick Owens’ DRKSHDW DRKSTAR Hi is a typically avant-garde remix of the classic silhouette, boasting an elongated tongue and spliced sole unit.

The Nike Air Jordan 1 continues to be one of the Swoosh’s most celebrated silhouettes. And while certain colorways fetch two or three times their retail price at resale, a quick scroll through the StockX Below Retail category reveals some highlights for much less. The Dark Marina Blue colorway has a classic varsity spin, and you can bag a pair for just $124 right now.

The word ‘timeless’ gets thrown about a lot these days, and often it’s unwarranted. The Blazer Mid 77 Vintage is a stone-cold classic in the Nike archive and a genuinely timeless design. In its black & white outfit, it’s about as versatile as it ever looks.

Inspired by Japan’s Shinkansen bullet trains, the Nike Air Max 97 adopts a super-streamlined silhouette with distinctive waving lines around the upper. This Triple White version shifts the focus entirely to the silhouette. Actually, not entirely. We’re also keenly focused on that below-retail price tag.

We’re suckers for an sneaker that’s based around a base off-white color. While there have been many more hyped designs out of the YEEZY camp, we’d actually go as far as saying that the YEEZY Boost 700 Analog is a top-five colorway.

The adidas YEEZY 450 is arguably the most alien silhouette that Kanye has ever dropped. The skeletal sole unit zig-zags up the mesh, sock-like upper which takes inspirations from sandals dating back to Ancient Rome.

The fact that there are Travis Scott collaborations sitting amongst the listings in the StockX Below Retail lineup should be enough to make it a regular visit for you. Now available for as low as $110, the Nike x Travis Scott Air Trainer 1 SP is a no-brainer.

If You Like Tiffany, You Better Put a Lock on It

Visit the original post to see all 6 images from this gallery.

“No rules. All welcome.” No, that’s not an Outback Steakhouse ad, it’s the “spirit” behind Tiffany & Co.’s new Lock collection.

With the Lock series of jewelry, Tiffany & Co. is unlocking a new standard of beauty, one that eschews gender norms in favor of unfettered beauty, epitomizing the LVMH-owned jeweler’s contemporary take on elegance.

Though, I certainly could go for a Bloomin’ Onion®.

Available at Tiffany & Co’s website and stores from August 2022, the Tiffany Lock collection ranges in price from $6,800 to $32,000, depending on make and model.

Regardless of which style of Lock bracelet you opt for, you’re getting an 18k gold bangle fitted with a padlock-inspired clasp that lifts up and literally locks into place.

Sleeker shapes sport nothing but glistening yellow or rose gold while the pricier models load up on diamonds, which dot the clasp in a delicate contrast to the precious metal body.

“Tiffany Lock is an elegant interpretation of an archival functional design,” Alexandre Arnault, Executive VP of Product and Communication, said in a statement, emphasizing the Lock bracelets’ clean lines and “breakthrough” clasp feature.

The “No rules. All welcome,” comes into play when Tiffany describes Lock jewelry’s clasp as “an audacious symbol of togetherness and inclusivity.”

Be that as it may, the Lock series bracelets — which are literally brought together by their clasps — also have concrete design inspiration informing their shape.

Leafing through the Tiffany archives, one will see that the venerable company actually sold working padlocks up until the ’50s. Thereafter, the padlock became a core motif within Tiffany’s design language, epitomized through everything from pendants to brooches.

Modern designs like the Tiffany Love Lock necklaces and HardWear line — a favorite of house ambassador Hailey Bieber — keep the spirit of the Tiffany padlock alive.

Perhaps future Tiffany Lock collections, which will debut in January 2023, will make that connection between the new line and Tiffany’s original padlock that much more tangible.

Or, as another Tiffany ambassador might say, “If you like Tiff, you better put put a Lock on it.” Or not.
