Appearance

In the beginning of the series, Jules is seen wearing a lot of very feminine and pastel clothing with bright makeup. She shows off her figure with tennis skirts and tight fitting tops. It is hinted that she dresses this way to seem more attractive to men, which helps her validate her femininity and womanhood as a transgender woman. Over the course of the series, she explores with darker colors and looser clothing. This could either be her exploring her fashion sense as she cares less about male attraction, or it could be a reflection of her mental state, as she deals with the burden of many things around her at the second half of the show. Her makeup often reflects her emotions, and tells a story of its own. Jules focuses on her eye makeup, usually wearing very bright and unblended eye-shadow which suits her hooded eye shape. Her hair occasionally has streaks of color, such as pink or purple.

Sexuality

Jules is unlabeled. Jules connects conquering femininity, and being a real woman to sleeping with random adult men she meets through dating apps, which is a part of dealing with gender identity. This can be why it is sometimes harder for trans women to figure out their sexuality, which is what happened in Jules case. She states that "I feel like if I conquer men I conquer femininity". She believes these men are validating her womanhood. When she meets her now girlfriend Rue Bennett she realizes that she likes girls, and that she does not need to sleep or be with men to conquer femininity, and be a true woman. She then knows that she already is a real woman.

In Season 2, when being asked how many men she’s slept with she states "In fact it’s an irrelevant question cause I’m no longer interested in men."

Gender

In the Jules centric special episode titled "Fuck Anyone Who's Not a Sea Blob", Jules further explains her relationship towards femininity and being transgender as something "deeply spiritual" and personal to her. At first she does not want to talk with her therapist about why she ran away, so she announces that she wants to go off her hormones, or at least remove the implant in her arm that suppresses her puberty.

Reaction

Hunter Schafer has been praised for her performance as Jules Vaughn, and for bringing authenticity to the role as a transgender woman. The character Jules has also received unnecessary hate, and backlash on social media. Some villainize her which creator of Euphoria Sam Levinson has addressed, stating that Jules is not a villain, and he does not understand how people could think Jules is a villain.

LGBT fans have expressed love for the Rue, and Jules relationship, and they are now a very popular sapphic "ship" on social media. They have been given the ship name "Rules".
