Get ready for a fashion competition like you've never seen before.
Julia Fox is challenging the most disruptive up-and-coming designers to turn basic into bats--t on E!'s new reality series OMG Fashun.
"Hey, b----hs!" the host and executive producer said in the first look, released Feb. 1. "Nothing is off limits."
But as the preview teased, some looks will be more avant-garde than others. "It looks like a labia," she noted of one design in the teaser, "but, hey, we're pro-pussy over here."
And pro pushing the boundaries.
"OMG Fashun is shaping the future of fashion, emphasizing sustainability, upcycling, and creative craftsmanship to restore integrity to this art form," Fox added in a statement. "Being the most stylish person in the room doesn't require breaking the bank; all it takes is creativity and a dash of confidence. My biggest hope is that our viewers will get inspired by what we create on the show and recreate the looks at home using all their old junk they have lying around!"
And Fox is the perfect person for the job, according to Executive Vice President of Unscripted Content, Lifestyle and Documentaries at NBCUniversal Entertainment Rachel Smith.
"Julia is a tour de force in the industry and a champion for up-and-coming designers," she said. "This show celebrates fashion's newest disruptors as they push the boundaries for their ultimate muse, Julia, and we're excited to share their original and unique perspectives with our audience."
Joining Fox as co-host of OMG Fashun is renowned image architect andZendaya's stylist Law Roach.
Each episode will challenge three designers to create a boundary-breaking look born of Fox's bold brain. Using unexpected materials and techniques, the contestants must race against the clock to compose and style their unconventional ensembles for the judging panel, which welcomes new guests each week.
The disruptor with the most eye-catching, unexpected and cutting-edge look will be awarded a $10,000 cash prize and gets their garment modeled by Fox.
Check out the first look above. OMG Fashun premiers with two back-to-back episodes Monday, May 6, at 9 p.m. on E!.

Luxury sports car and EV maker Lotus completed its SPAC merger last week in the U.S. and its stock was publicly traded for the first time on Friday. It’s an interesting turn of events for the Geely-backed automaker now known as Lotus Tech given the uncertain EV market, but one that may prove an exception to the struggles of other pure-play EV makers. Trading under the ticker LOT on the Nasdaq, Lotus Tech will focus on the higher end of the EV market with its Eletre SUV and Emeya sedan, which will not only be offered in the US but also in Europe and, more importantly, China.
General Motors Co.’s Cruise autonomous driving unit is nearing the resumption of robotaxi testing in the coming weeks, with Houston and Dallas emerging as potential locations, following the grounding of its fleet last year.
To give AI-focused women academics and others their well-deserved — and overdue — time in the spotlight, TechCrunch is launching a series of interviews focusing on remarkable women who’ve contributed to the AI revolution. Amba Kak is the executive director of the AI Now Institute, where she helps create policy recommendations to address AI concerns. It's not a straightforward question because "AI" is a term that's in vogue to describe practices and systems that have been evolving for a long time now; I've been working on technology policy for over a decade and in multiple parts of the world and witnessed when everything was about "big data," and then everything became about "AI".
