Julia Fox might’ve just debuted her wildest footwear yet — and that’s saying a lot considering the star’s outrageous fashion sense. While posing for a Victoria’s Secret World Tour photo shoot on the streets of New York City on Sept. 6, the model wore heels that were missing, well . . . the heels. Her patent leather Pleaser boots featured a 3-inch platform sole and no back heel for additional support, which is practically a broken ankle waiting to happen. In fact, they come with a warning on the Pleaser website, reading, “Due to their extreme height and unique heelless design, these shoes are not recommended for walking or dancing.”
Despite the risks, Fox still managed to strut the sidewalk with a 7-Eleven Slurpee in hand and nary a wobble in sight as the cameras snapped away. She tucked sleek low-rise pants into her boots and finished the look with a matching leather bra, archival Victoria’s Secret wings, and a black shoulder bag. Later on in the evening, Fox changed into a sheer silver thong-exposing dress and much more walkable heels for the Victoria’s Secret World Tour launch party, where stars including Iris Law, Lila Moss, Priyanka Chopra, and Lori Harvey hit the pink carpet.
Fox regularly makes headlines with her eccentric style choices. Just one day ago, the actor showed some skin in a revealing chain bikini at Naomi Campbell’s PrettyLittleThing runway show, risking a wardrobe malfunction as she posed on the red carpet. Other notable head-turning outfits this year include a completely sheer cutout swimsuit, a translucent condom crop top and boots, and a corset made entirely of neckties. She’s also previously repped Pleaser, stepping out in the brand’s white platforms with heels at New York Fashion Week in February.
