It takes a lot of restraint to not cover every one of Julia Fox's iconic ensembles, but when snaps of the star stepping out in her literal dry cleaning hit the press, it simply couldn't be ignored.  

The avant-garde fashionista has a laundry list of headline-grabbing looks under her belt, from grocery shopping in her underwear to rocking a tube top made of condoms - and yes, controversially carrying a 'body bag' to New York Fashion Week earlier this year.  

But this week, the 33-year-old put a whole new spin on 'day-to-night' glam, wearing a crisp white shirtdress not on her body like us mere mortals would do, but suspended in front of her naked torso - held in a clear dry-cleaning bag that hung from her neck like a human hanger.  

The shirtdress in question is by Figura Services, an experimental London-based fashion label and self-proclaimed "laboratory of familiar objects in unfamiliar contexts" that arrived on the scene in 2021. Emblazoned with their logo, the garment itself is straight from their Autumn-Winter 2023 runway, which was shown at London Fashion Week earlier this year.

Much like traditional dry cleaning, the shirt was hung on a wire hanger before being slipped inside the clear protective garment bag, which was then seemingly attached to Fox's necklace. 

To finish the look, she wore a pair of pyjama-style white cotton boxer shorts and accessorised with patent knee-high cream boots, a futuristic white bag, and plenty of side-boob.   

The mum-of-one was spotted while out and about in London, paying a visit to the Ham Yard Hotel in Soho.   

Fox's ensembles are more than just avant-garde, however: the looks are too intentional to be passed off as simply an "Outfit of the Day". Wearing an outfit that's designed to be perceived as dry cleaning is very cleverly symbolic, as Fox continues her press tour for her tell-all and deeply personal memoir, Down the Drain. She's airing her laundry - dirty and all - for the world to see.  

Elsewhere on the tour, Fox - a former dominatrix - was also seen in a studded leather dress that channelled BDSM, while barely-there bodices made of chains could be interpreted as the metaphorical shackles she had to shake - or a reference to being held in a psychiatric hospital, perhaps. Whatever the meaning, there's plenty of sartorial touchpoints to have fun analysing.
