Julia Fox isn’t afraid of freezer burn. On May 15, Fox was spotted grocery shopping in Los Angeles, but instead of sweatpants and a messy bun, the model stepped through the automatic doors in a set of matching lingerie. As she ran her errand, Fox was dressed in a black bra with white elastic and a matching pair of underwear layered under a denim blazer. She styled the look with her signature jean purse, a pair of ruched denim boots, and black sunglasses.
As photos of Fox’s unconventional grocery-shopping look circulated online, fans were quick to express their disbelief over the risqué ensemble. “Oh sure, when Julia Fox goes grocery shopping in her underwear, she’s a fashion icon. But when I do it, I’m ‘no longer welcome in Whole Foods,’” one person tweeted on Monday.
“I just think that if it’s socially acceptable at the beach it should be the same everywhere.”
In response to the countless memes that emerged from her casual outing, Fox turned to her Instagram Stories to share her thoughts on fans’ outfit critiques. “I just think that if it’s socially acceptable at the beach it should be the same everywhere lol,” she wrote.
Fox’s grocery-store trip comes just two months after she attended the Film Independent Spirit Awards in a black cutout dress from LA-based brand No Sesso, which featured a triangle bikini top layered underneath. The Canadian tuxedo that Fox layered over her lingerie look on Sunday was also composed of pieces from her extensive denim collection, which includes a barely there bandeau top repurposed from the waistband of a pair of jeans.
Fox’s creativity in the fashion sphere has definitely been eye-catching, and her latest look is no exception. Will this singular outing normalize showing up to the frozen-foods section in nothing but boxers and a bralette? We’ll stick to sweatpants.
