Julia Fox is a muse once more.

After famously declaring that she inspired filmmaker Josh Safdie when he wrote “Uncut Gems,” the actress is playing “dream” girl to buzzy New York brand Seks (pronounced “sex”).

“Julia is a dream, she’s everything,” the label’s Abel Cepeda Ljoka and Will Kowall tell Page Six Style.

“She does Julia and follows no one, so it’s exciting every time she steps out to see how she puts things together.”

Kanye West’s ex, 32, has stepped out in three different Seks designs in recent weeks, including the flaming leather bikini top she paired with 9-inch platforms for a stroll around LA.

Fittingly dubbed the “Titty Smasher,” the stringy style retails for $450 and is made to “[hug] all the right places, tightly” and ooze “sheer c—titude,” per the design duo.

“Some commented that it didn’t fit right,” they said. “But no, sweeties, it’s doing exactly what it’s supposed to — you either get the aesthetic or you don’t.”

Seks is also behind the glossy black bandeau and furry-sleeved jacket Fox wore for an April outing, as well as the $3,000 croc-embossed cutout corset dress she modeled later that month in Paris.

“The front zipper continues along the bust to the back, giving you the feeling that you can keep pulling it — and the curiosity of what will happen if you do,” the pair said of the inspiration behind the latter look.

The label was founded in 2019 as Seks Fifth Avenue, a play on the iconic department store, although that name didn’t last long — “Saks came for us,” they said.

“We began the brand at the beginning of the pandemic at a time where we didn’t have access to materials or supplies, so we started by using pieces from our personal closets,” the designers continued. “This led to scouring for discounted and defected factory pieces, along with basic thrifting.”

While upcycling’s “still a part of our process,” they added, Seks has since shifted its focus to leather looks like the ones embraced by the “Uncut Gems” actress.

But Fox isn’t Seks’ only famous fan; Grimes wore a white leather breastplate ($2,500) modeled after a woman’s nude torso for a magazine shoot in March, rapper Latto sported a denim-and-leather racing top ($2,500) in her “Wheelie” music video and Princess Nokia was spotted in a crop top customized with her stage name during her Coachella performance in April.

Seks has even popped up on the fashion-packed Netflix hit “Emily in Paris,” whose costume designer, Patricia Field, once stocked the brand in her downtown showroom.

And while the pair aren’t resting on their laurels — they named Rihanna, Zoë Kravitz, Bella Hadid and Cardi B as a few of the big names they’d love to dress next — it might be hard to find a star who embodies the brand quite like Fox.

“No matter how she interprets the pieces through her own energy, the outcome always aligns with ours,” they said of the brunette beauty.

“See, Seks is a whole mood, not just clothing. So to wear it, no matter who you are, you have to have that power when you walk. And Julia has it.”

Angel Olsen Perseveres ‘Through the Fires’ in New Song

Published

Angel Olsen has released a new song, “Through the Fires,” from her upcoming album, Big Time, which arrives on June 3 via Jagjaguwar. It’s the third single from the album following the title track and “All the Good Times.

Olsen called the heartfelt song about persevering and finding resilience a “centerpiece statement” for Big Time. “It’s a song I wrote to remind myself that this life is temporary, the past is not something to dwell on, that it’s important to keep moving, keep searching for the people that are also searching, and to notice the moments that are lighter and bigger than whatever trouble I’ve encountered,” she said in a statement.

Olsen’s “Through the Fires” contemplative lyrics convey the importance of acknowledging one’s past in order to move forward. “To remember the ghost/Who exists in the past,” she sings. “But be freed from the longing/For one moment to last.”

Along with the sone, Olsen also released a lyric video, shot by Angela Ricciardi.

Olsen previously shared that she wrote Big Time as she navigated queer love and grief: Olsen came out to her parents and, shortly after, lost both of them within weeks of each other. Co-produced by Jonathan Wilson, it follows Whole New Mess and All Mirrors.

A film titled after the album is set to premiere on June 2, presented by Amazon Music. That evening at 9:30 p.m. ET, Amazon Music channel on Twitch will feature a watch party and Q&A with Olsen and director Kimberly Stuckwisch, followed by a concert airing from the premiere party. This summer, Olsen hits the road on the Wild Hearts tour with Sharon Van Etten and Julien Baker, beginning in Vienna, Virginia, on July 21.

Post Malone and Roddy Ricch Party at the Edge of the Abyss in ‘Cooped Up’ Video

Post Malone and Roddy Ricch link up in the new music video for their recent single together, “Cooped Up.” 

Directed by Andre Bato, the clip opens with Post Malone performing the song as he strolls around an apartment space that boasts an extremely chic vibe, but looks like its sitting in the midst of a giant abyss. There are some quick flashes of figures that appear to be lying in wait in the distance, though Roddy Ricch is the first to arrive on the scene. Rather than some unexpected horror from the dark depths appearing next though, the video ends with a horde of red-clad partiers entering the apartment for a final blowout. 

“Cooped Up” was released last week, marking the first offering since Post Malone officially announced his new album, Twelve Carat Toothache, set to arrive June 3. The only other album cut Posty has released so far is the Weeknd-featuring single, “One Right Now,” which arrived last year. But over the weekend, Post Malone used his Saturday Night Live debut to perform another new song, “Love/Hate Letter to Alcohol,” which features the indie group Fleet Foxes.

Twelve Carat Toothache will be Post Malone’s fourth studio album and first in three years, following 2019’s Hollywood’s Bleeding. In an interview with Billboard earlier this year, the musician said the record would “speak more to how I’m feeling at the moment: the ups and downs and the disarray and the bipolar aspect of being an artist in the mainstream.”
