She keeps things foxy.
Megan Fox’s name is synonymous with bombshell. Her acting career began while the fashion landscape consisted of low-rise jeans and bodycon minidresses — and her looks have remained fire-emoji-worthy ever since. Recently, Fox’s looks have revealed a sly sense of humor as she embraces and subverts her bombshell status with layers of camp (often with her fiancé, Machine Gun Kelly, by her side).
Whether she's putting her own twist on a classic blazer dress or slipping into a catsuit for an MGK concert, Fox's sensual style features a few fashion staples. The actor also doesn't shy away from showing skin; our girl loves a plunging neckline, a thigh-high slit, and a major mesh moment.
Her most iconic looks, particularly on the red carpet, are a masterclass in nearly naked dressing. If there's a sheer trend circulating in Hollywood, chances are Fox has taken the style for a spin. Ahead, we've rounded up Megan Fox's most daring and exciting outfits from red carpets to Fashion Week runway front rows, and more.
Megan Fox in Jessica Rich Boots in London in 2023
Fox is one celeb who knows that you don't have to wear pants if your boots are so high that they almost hit your dress hem. Such was the case with her thigh-skimming Jessica Rich snakeskin boots and leather The Mannei mini dress.
Megan Fox in a Jean Paul Gaultier Dress in 2023
In the words of Fox herself, "Calm down, those are not my nipples." While ultra-sheer, this illusion mesh Jean Paul Gaultier dress didn't actually show much skin at all. Fox accessorized her optical-illusion of a dress with a layered Dylan Lex choker necklace and Femme strappy sandals.
Megan Fox in a LaQuan Smith Gown at the 'SI Swimsuit' Party in 2023
As one of SI Swimsuit's 2023 cover stars, Fox attended not one but two parties in honor of the issue's release. For the first event in N.Y.C., Fox wore a beautifully tailored LaQuan Smith gown with mesh and satin paneling. It's giving moody siren and we're here for it.
Megan Fox in a Blumarine Gown at the 'SI Swimsuit' Party in 2023
For the second SI Swimsuit Issue celebration in 2023, Fox slipped into a crochet Blumarine gown in soft taupe from the brand's Fall 2023 collection. We love how Fox delivered similar silhouettes to both events while creating entirely separate aesthetics.
Megan Fox in a Zuhair Murad Gown at the Grammy Awards in 2023
For the 2023 Grammys, Fox continued her streak of wearing gowns fresh off the runway. This Zuhair Murad dress from the Pre-Fall 2023 collection featured an elegant and classic silhouette energized with a striking bejeweled corset.
Megan Fox in a Miss Sohee Gown at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in 2023
We frequently see Fox in figure-hugging gowns, but we especially love when she leans all the way into the drama of a silhouette, as she did in this velvet Miss Sohee gown with shimmering bustle peplum, plunging neckline, and sculpted bust cups. Like much of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle actor's recent looks, the gown she wore to the 2023 Vanity Fair Oscar Party — equal parts Old Hollywood and Jessica Rabbit — felt self-aware and a little bit meta, especially when accessorized with a Mouawad diamond collar.
Megan Fox in a Christian Siriano Gown at the 'GQ' Men of the Year Party in 2022
While Fox doesn't shy away from sheer dressing, she has established a few approaches to this see-through trend that she favors more than others. Patchwork mesh overtop satin paneling or undergarments — an approach beautifully illustrated by the Christian Siriano gown she wore to the 2022 GQ Men of the Year Party — is among her favorite sheer styling choices.
Megan Fox in Givenchy Jeans in L.A. in 2022
When Fox goes oversized, it's usually featured in an outfit that thoughtfully plays with proportion and, almost always, features luxe designer separates. Case in point: the Givenchy denim and silk corset ensemble that Fox wore to a taping of Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2022. Naturally, her distressed jeans are denim and the wide-leg silhouette balances out her slouchy jean jacket.
Megan Fox in a Maison Yeya Gown at the Time 100 Gala in 2022
Fox looked like a vision in Maison Yeya's hand-draped Helia Dress for the 2022 Time 100 Gala. The metallic fabric took on a serious luster, making it look more precious metal than textile, a visual element accentuated by Fox's Rula Galayini Coil Cuffbox bracelet.
Megan Fox in a David Koma Dress at the Billboard Music Awards in 2022
Megan Fox's David Koma gown, paired with crystal-studded shoulder-length gloves at 2022 Billboard Music Awards had literally everyone talking. Proving once again that she has an eye for cohesive aesthetic expression, Fox's dangling diamond snake earrings from Pasquale Bruni beautifully mirror the winding crystal stems on her coordinating glove.
Megan Fox in a Roberta Einer Suit at the NBA All-Star Game in 2022
For the NBA All-Star Game in 2022, Fox and fiancé Machine Gun Kelly each wore updated takes on classic suiting: he in a crystal-encrusted tracksuit and she in matching Roberta Einer suit separates featuring a bold and layered tiger print. Naturally, when Fox suits up, she goes with a minimal push-up bra underneath rather than a blouse. We salute her.
Megan Fox in a Dion Lee Matching Set in 2022
Fox does interesting things with bold, bright colors, but when she goes more subdued, she chooses equally compelling shades like the dusky lavender of the Dion Lee top and trousers. Fox and her stylist, Maeve Rielly, have also mastered color complementing in place of color matching — as evidenced by her barely brighter Amina Muaddi bag and heels.
Megan Fox in Givenchy at the Launch of UN/DN LAQR Nail Polish in 2021
For the launch of MGK's UN/DN LAQR nail polish, Fox tapped into her vampy side, accessorizing a layered blazer dress from Givenchy's Spring 2022 collection with armor-evoking Loree Rodkin body jewelry. Her chainlink multi-joint ring and body chain served up an edgy take on a statement pendant necklace.
Megan Fox in a Dundas Gown at the Met Gala in 2021
For the 2021 Met Gala, which had a "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion" theme, Fox wore a Dundas gown in fiery crimson that was equal parts cut-out and laced up. Showing off her commitment to a fully realized look, Fox wore ruby jewelry, a ruby-red lip, and styled her hair with blunt bangs and a single waist-skimming braid that echoed her gown's elaborate criss-cross lacing.
Mega Fox in Moschino during New York Fashion Week in 2021
Fox's casual looks are no less composed or artful than her red carpet ensembles. For the Moschino runway show during NYFW's Spring/Summer 2022 season, she wore a cerulean matching set from the brand that was every bit as polished as the gowns she wore that same year (even with rain-soaked hems).
Megan Fox in a Sheer Mugler Dress at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2021
For the 2021 MTV VMAs, Fox donned what just might be the most barely-there dress she's ever worn. The gauzy Mugler gown from the Spring 2021 collection blended smoothly into Fox's skin tone, save for delicate metallic veining that gave it an intricate, but subtle pattern. Accessorized with platform Jimmy Choo sandals, Fox was nearly naked and totally golden.
Megan Fox in an Alex Perry Dress in L.A. in 2021
While Megan Fox is a fashion risk-taker, she also stays true to an hourglass silhouette in both her casual and red carpet looks. The corseted Alex Perry midi dress she wore to a taping of Jimmy Kimmel Live! in 2021 features a more relaxed, but still refined, approach to the draping and cinching she'd favor in her most glittering gowns in the coming years.
Megan Fox in a Redemption Suit at 'Watch What Happens Live!' in 2018
For a 2018 taping of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Fox married her go-to deep-V neckline and preference for statement suiting courtesy of a sequined Redemption Blazer and matching trousers. This fit's impeccable tailoring and visual balance — peek how her black lapels share the same satiny finish as her pointy-toe pumps — show, once again, Fox's dedication to a cohesive look, no matter how campy the individual pieces involved.
Megan Fox in a Bodycon Dress in L.A. in 2016
Megan Fox's maternity style delivered the same sleek and shapely style the actor quickly established as her go-to look. In 2016, Fox was spotted in a black bodycon midi dress that featured silver studded edging and hugged all the star's curves, including her baby bump.
Megan Fox in a Ralph Lauren Gown at the Golden Globe Awards in 2009
By 2009, Fox's career was well-established, and she appeared to be taking more ownership of her red carpet styling. At the Golden Globes, Fox opted for a gilded Ralph Lauren sheath with a classically glamorous silhouette that would become her red carpet staple in years to come.
