Hours after it was announced that Julia Fox had broken up with Kanye West less than five weeks after being linked to him, the actress opened LaQuan Smith’s 2022 fall show at New York Fashion Week.
A fancy show which includes American actress Nicole Ari Parker, who wanted to find out what the label beloved by Beyoncé and Rihanna was all about. Smith’s impenitently sexy creativity collected a vast crowd.
When Fox walked down the makeshift catwalk in a private member’s club, sporting an all-black satin gown with racy cutouts throughout his chest, it didn’t matter that they were one hour late.
Despite the conclusion of her romance with Ye, Fox clarified that she had not been reduced to tears. Her smoking hot runway moment proved this statement true as well. The event coincided with Ye giving Kim Kardashian flowers for Valentine’s Day, and while the American socialite received a truckload of flowers, Fox rocked the runway.
Smith’s “revenge” dress was perfectly designed for Fox, a high-octane evening of clubbing. “Julia has been my girl from day one,” Smith said of recruiting his friend for the show. “She always comes to me for a nasty catsuit for a night out on the town, and it just felt kind of pressy and gaggy,” he added.
When Smith presented their New York show during a silent season, it quickly became an international fashion name. It was a show made successful by two hustlers, indeed.
