Julia Fox once fixed a red carpet wardrobe malfunction with a hair tie: ‘The look that haunts me’

This dress still has a hold on Julia Fox.

The “OMG Fashun” host took a look back at some of her most iconic outfits in a video for InStyle on YouTube Thursday and, during the interview, she shared the one edgy look that “haunts” her.

Fox, 34 — who wore her blond hair in a sculptural updo and sported bright orange lipstick — was greeted by a group of cardboard cutouts of herself at the shoot, including one wearing her 2022 Vanity Fair Oscars Party dress.

“Oh my god, this look. This is like the look that haunts me,” the “Uncut Gems” actress said of the black leather “grip” dress by Danish designer Han Kjøbenhavn.

While Fox called the gown — which featured a 3-D hand that wrapped around Fox’s neck like a halter — “amazing,” it turns out the handsy style didn’t quite behave on the red carpet.

“The hand was not staying up properly,” she explained. “I had a hair tie, and I made like a little makeshift tie in the back to kind of keep it on there because the chokehold was not chokeholding.”

Fox, who brought a “human hair bag” to the Oscars party, revealed another tidbit about the event, adding, “I was also stoned out of my mind and that’s why my eyes are literally the color of a tomato.”

As for her head-turning ensembles, the model said she’s “never just trying to wear a pretty outfit or a hot outfit,” adding that would be “so passé, so boring.”

Instead, she likes to “tell a story” through her outfits. “I try to like, channel things. You know, I’m playing a character,” Fox explained.

For her photoshoot with InStyle, the mom of one tried on an “office woman, 9 to 5 woman” persona, wearing a series of business blazers and skirts as she posed amid cubicles and copy machines.

She also discussed her upcoming E! competition show, “OMG Fashun,” with the mag, sharing that snagging celebrity stylist Law Roach as her co-host felt like a “fluke.”

“I feel like on the surface, I was just so intimidated by Law because I was like, ‘This is the fashion god, I’m not even worthy. How did [he] even agree to do this?’” she shared.

Although the “Down the Drain” author juggles everything from writing books and acting to modeling, singing and producing, Fox admitted, “I hate working. I hate work. Doesn’t everybody though?”

At the end of the day, her dream is simple. “I just want to be at home on TikTok eating my snacks. With my son.”
