Another day, another midriff reveal from Julia Fox. The actor stepped out to go to the Polo Lounge in Beverly Hills while wearing an über low-slung skirt, boots and an itty-bitty top with a keyhole cut-out that boasted criss-crossed spaghetti straps around the neck. On her arm, was the bag du jour: the Balenciaga Le Cagole, also in black.
Fox is certainly turning heads thanks to her super-cropped ensembles. This week, she opted for a sequin bandeau top and a low-rise maxi skirt at a pre-Oscars Net-a-Porter dinner. She’s even gone the DIY route to bare the belly: Just this past month, she sheared the top of her jeans off to create a denim bandeau top (the tutorial is on Instagram). She also separated a men’s tank top into a two-piece set.
Fox’s love for all-things omphalic comes at the right time. We are in an era where fashion is fixated on the tummy. After all, the spring/summer 2022 runways were filled with midriff-revealing ensembles, from Miu Miu’s ubiquitous miniskirt, to trousers that appeared as if they were going to slide off at Coperni, and Isabel Marant’s fluttering crop tops.
As for Fox, she’s quickly becoming the reigning queen of midriff. Yes, there have been ladies before her, including Emily Ratajkowski and Bella Hadid who have frequently graced the world with their belly buttons, but Fox’s raw take offers a bit of edge to the playful look.
