Megan Fox Wears Red Hot Mini Dress to Reunite with Machine Gun Kelly for Met Gala Afterparty
After commanding the 2021 Met Gala red carpet solo, Megan Fox coordinated looks with boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly for a night out in N.Y.C.
True to form, the couple put on a sexy display in coordinating outfits — the actress, 35, in a heavily-embellished, skin-baring, scarlet mini dress from the new Dundas x Revolve collection (available for pre-order now!) and the musician, 31, in an edgy black leather look featuring a bomber jacked covered in red sequin appliqués that played up Fox's mini.
Kelly was performing at a concert at Central Park's Summer Stage (which later got canceled due to the rain) during the Met Gala, but Fox stole the spotlight on her own in a head-turning, red Dundas gown featuring an open bodice and criss-cross weaving at her hips, plus a thigh-high slit for maximum skin exposure. She paired the look with Jimmy Choo platforms and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.
"I feel like I've always leaned into it, I'm not afraid to be sexy," the star told Vogue on the red carpet when asked about her sex symbol status. "I think a woman who's intelligent and also knows how to weaponize her beauty, there's nothing more dangerous than that, there's nothing more powerful than that. I feel like all women should embrace the fact that as the divine feminine we have a lot of power and, instead of rejecting it, I'm happy to embrace it and go for the sexy."
As for the night's theme, which celebrated all things American fashion, Fox said her look embodied it, "because it's on an American girl, that makes it American fashion."
She also thanked everyone at Dundas who worked on the design. "Everything was beaded, one bead at a time," said the Midnight in the Switchgrass actress. "By the way, if you were one of the people that worked on this dress, hours and hours and hours of labor, thank you I appreciate you, the craftsmanship is incredible. Very grateful."
On Sunday night at the MTV VMAs, Fox also flexed her sexy symbol status proudly wearing a naked dress on the red carpet as she supported Kelly. Fox wore a see-through, custom Mugler midi dress with shimmery embroidery teamed with an embellished, crystal-like thong underneath (that's reminiscent of the naked dress Rose McGowan wore to the 1998 show). She accessorized with Lorraine Schwartz earrings and Jimmy Choo heels.
After her string of revealing red carpet looks, Fox turned to Instagram with a message for online trolls who choose to criticize her expressive, sexy style, writing, "Just me out here ignoring and defying all of your puritanical emotionally repressed projections of what a woman should be."
