The internet is buzzing about rumored new couple Kanye West and Julia Fox after the two were spotted on back-to-back dates just a few days into the new year. Most recently, on Tuesday evening, the rapper and actor went to see Slave Play on Broadway and headed to dinner at Carbone afterwards, sparking more chatter about whether the duo were dating. I was admittedly curious as well, but not so much about their relationship status — I was more fascinated by Julia’s date night outfit of choice, which consisted of a lot of Balenciaga and low-rise cutout pants.
The Uncut Gems actor was photographed walking with Ye wearing head-to-toe black, including a short-sleeved fitted top with a high neck, leather trench coat, and croc-embossed purse, all from Balenciaga, of course. It goes without saying that Kanye has heavily influenced Kim Kardashian‘s fashion over the years, and it appears that Julia is already adapting her style as well. While she first wore a striped blue velvet coat to the show, she swapped it for the jet-black number for dinner.
What was most captivating about Julia’s outfit was her pants from Miaou, which she tucked into heeled boots. They’re apparently called “thong pants” — low-rise trousers with cutouts and straps at the hips to look like an exposed thong. I’ve said it before, but I believe the cutout trend has gone too far with pants, though I can certainly admit that the actor makes it work. Ahead, see more photos of Julia’s outfit for her night out with Kanye.
