Megan Fox wore Mugler hosiery to the MTV VMAs: cute or too rock chick?

2021 MTV Video Music Awards

Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly walked the MTV VMA red carpet together, but like any boyfriend dating a certified hottie, MGK stepped away to allow Megan to pose solo for the fashion photos. I don’t even know why, because Megan was just wearing a thin piece of hosiery, basically. Megan’s dress is Mugler Spring 2021 and I wish she had worn something… different. But it fits for the VMAs, so be it. MGK also ended up part of some kind of violent fracas on the VMA red carpet – Conor McGregor apparently took a swing at him and Conor had to be held back by security. There’s some confusion about exactly what started it, but it seems like MGK’s team refused to let MGK take a photo with Conor? WTF?

Another “hot” 2021 couple: Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker. Kourt wore Olivier Theyskens Spring 2021. It’s very… biker chick. I’m not into it, but whatever, they seem very happy.

Camila Cabello in Alexis Mabille. She’s still in her princess sh-t. I generally don’t like pink-and-red combos, but it is what it is.

2021 MTV Video Music Awards

I saw Avril Lavigne on the pre-show and I was shocked by how “girlish” she was. It threw me for a loop! It was like we were back in 2003 for no reason. She’s 36 years old and she still talks and acts like a skater girl. Avril wore Area pre-fall 2021. It was… a lot.

Jennifer Lopez is so hot, my God. She wore David Koma Resort. No panties.

Hailey Bieber wore Alaïa Spring 2022. She didn’t walk the carpet, she was there to present and to support Justin, who opened the show and won Artist of the Year and Best Pop.

    I understand this is MTV, believe me I grew up with it when it first started, BUT good LORD some of these women look like they belong in a lingerie AD and MF should have just shown up in a bikini and heels.
    I liked Avril’s look, but I am sucker for some plaid no matter what.
    And JLO, we all know you still got it hon. I like the skirt but that bodice, once again, does her no favors.

    • Lemons says:

      I was thinking that some of these looks feel more appropriate for the PornHub Awards. Just nothing was really worn for the beauty of the clothes, just a chance to show some *ss and b**bs. And I don’t have a problem with that…it’s just none of this seemed interesting or cool. Just put on some pasties or chaps and be done with it!

      • remarks says:

        I don’t get whey they all look alike. There’s trends, and then there’s being indistinguishable from each other.

    • Keats says:

      I can’t help but like Avrils look more than I should too! Avril is Avril-ing as hard as she can

    • Ughs says:

      Ladies, just wear glitter undies & skip the top layer.

    • MsIam says:

      What skirt? Where?

    • Annaloo. says:

      For some reason, the nudity doesn’t faze me. Kids today have seen everything… And what was Madonna wearing when she first was on MTV. We’ve had a lot of body positivity, and women asserting their agency and sexuality…for some reason, how the women are dressed for MTV don’t bug me. I kind of expect it.

      Is that sad, or are we just heading towards new norms of sexuality?

    • CoffeePants says:

      I’m hardly a prude, and have generally like the fact that MF is slowly climbing back into the A-lister good graces again. Still, wtf is that outfit? Leave something to the imagination, girl!

  2. Sierra says:

    Is this the convention for bad fashion or something?

    I don’t like any of the dresses and Megan is not even wearing one.

    • Seraphina says:

      I scrolled through 58 pics from the event and felt like it was a Halloween party and not MTV VMAs.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ Seraphina, I did the same thing last night and the only show stopper was Billy Porter. As for what the women wore, I found all of them too awful and not very well thought out. JLo usually always hits it, but not last night. Meghan Fox looked ridiculous and this look has been done 100xs. I didn’t see anyone that looked amazing but Kourtney did do well, as she looked like she was dressing for the right event.
        Anyway, I wasn’t blown away by anyone, but that’s me. Except Billy Porter, Lil Nas X, Alicia Keys, Leslie Grace, Shay Mitchell, Ed Sheeran and Ciara.

      • Amy Too says:

        I don’t even think the semi naked, overly sexual look is the problem, it’s just that the actual designs are not at all interesting or nice to look at. There has to be a new, interesting way to do this kind of look. But it’s always either black pleather/latex with or without a bunch of straps and harnesses and metal closures or it’s the skin tone sheer dress over skin tone underwear with or without some kind of sparkle element. Can we see a new color, pattern, material, or cut? This is off the top of my head, but what if you wanted to do the naked thing so you did a fishnet dress, or even a fishnet pants suit with underwear under it? Or a dress with chevron cut outs of varying widths so that you would have a V shape of fabric at your collar bone, the a V of skin exposed above the boobs, then fabric V to cover the nips, then a skin V that shows some under side boob, then alternate between skin and fabric Vs until you get to the crotch and have a thicker fabric V that covers the crotch, then skin, then fabric, then skin, etc to about tea length? I think that would be such a sexy and cool dress.

    • Esmom says:

      Everything feels try hard in its own unique way. Same with some of the men. Travis Barker looks completely ridiculous.

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      It’s the AVN Awards with some music and Avril Lavigne.

      • Eurydice says:

        Avril’s doing that thing where you exhale all your air and then suck in your stomach really hard.

    • Carmen says:

      Is he very tall or is she very short? She’s wearing stilettos and he’s towering over her.

  3. Chaine says:

    Boooring. Rose McGowan did it first, and like 20+ years ago.

  4. Mira says:

    To be fair, if I had Megan’s body I would wear random pieces of hosiery too

    • Lady Baden-Baden says:


    • ThEHufflepuffLizLemon says:

      Same. And BAG sounds like he was a pain to be married to, MGK adores her. I’m all for it.
      Actually, I’m here for everything on this post except maybe Hailey Bieber’s, just don’t care for the white seams, but she’s still gorg. JLO is stunning, Kourtney deserves happiness with Travis Barker, and I just apparently am riding on my workout endorphins because I think they all look beautiful, LOL.

    • Susan says:

      SAME. And bear in mind, she’s had THREE kids. THREE! Like, I know you can work out and get back to where you were weight wise, blah blah blah but that isn’t easy. And I’ve heard from *so* many of my friends (and Jennifer Garner, LOL) that things don’t bounce back as easy after the third. MF looks amazing, non-dress be damned.

      • Seraphina says:

        Genetics play a huge part that the beauty and “thin industry” (not fitness, because you can have curves and be fit) want to leave out of the equation.

      • Pix says:

        I was thinking the same thing. Three kids and that body? Come on – I’d walk around naked too.

    • Twin falls says:

      This all day.

    • February-Pisces says:

      Megan’s body is amazing, I can’t believe she’s had 3 kids. She’s my new body goals, I’m literally gonna start working out tomorrow after seeing this.

    • Carmen says:

      I would too. But not out of the house.

  5. Sakura says:

    Megan is looking too much like a Kardashian these days. I guess it makes sense since Meg shares the same stylists, makeup artists, and hairstylists as the Ks now.

  6. ItReallyIsYou,NotMe k8 says:

    Ugh It looks like showing as much skin as possible is in again and I am having flashbacks to Paris Hilton in the early aughts.

  7. Roserose says:

    Everyone is either demonstratively wearing underpants or demonstratively not wearing underpants.

  8. Gina says:

    I liked Megan Fox’s outfit. Usually, I’m not a fan of see-through dresses, but this one is so intentionally “simple”, its simplicity looks like fashion statement.
    As about Jennifer Lopez’s outfit. I think it’s awful. Not flattering at all. A lot of detailing. I can’t see this sexy woman with hot body under all these straps and pieces of black leather.
    Hailey Bieber’s dress seems the opposite of Jennifer’s in style but makes the same impression on me.

    • Jules says:

      Agreed! There’s a lot of pearl clutching about these women’s state of dress but honestly, if Mugler wanted me to wear one of his designs I wouldn’t miss a beat.

      A lot of the comments give the vibe of: Megan Fox is showing skin at the VMAs, let’s sneer at her and and judge her for feeling confident and sexy

      It’s not like she’s at the Oscars, let this woman live her fun years that she lost with BAG

  9. Jillian says:

    The “sexy” lace up gear just looks so dated to me, not shocking or fashionable. These aren’t even particularly good interpretations. Same for Meghan’s sheer dress, done and dull. And while I don’t actually hate Camila’s dress, her Cinderella movie was appalling. Just a total turd of a movie, hope Billy Porter and Idina Menzel were paid handsomely

  10. Sakura says:

    Slightly off topic, but can we talk about Madonna’s RIDICULOUS butt implants?!

  11. SomeChick says:

    how can you look “too rock chick” for the VMAs? wut?
    I bet that dress looked a lot better when more of the pink sparkle was reflecting.

    I love red and fuchsia. but not that dress.
    I actually enjoyed that cinderella movie a whole lot more than I anticipated. the costumes and dancers were amazing! let’s hear it for low expectations.

    that Alaïa needs a more curvy model to work. like a size 10 – 12 woman would rock that look.

    no Billie Eilish cozygoth? I loved her outfit.

  12. Va Va Kaboom says:

    Ma’am, You’re a mother. You shouldn’t be jumping in to stop a fight between a drunk Champion MMA fighter and a crackhead. No dick is that good. Let the burly men in ill fitting suits do their job.

    On a side note, I saw several people on Twitter blame the fact McGregor threw a drink on Cardi B. I know everyone’s said it, but damn they really can blame just about anything on a Black woman.

    • Zut Alors says:

      This comment made me laugh so hard, especially the “Ma’am, you’re a mother” part.

    • It’sJustBlanche says:

      I feel bad for thinking it, but yeah, she’s someone’s mother and he’s . . . Well whatever he is.

    • Truthiness says:

      💯 though Conor likes Megan. Rumor is that she was at some after fight party a while back and Conor made serious heavy advances on her and she wasn’t reciprocating in the least. Not comfortable. So he’s going to put down anyone she’s with, though he seems like a guy who would have a fight with a stop sign.

    • Sam Vimes says:

      In this case the MMA fighter and the crackhead are also the same person.

  13. Merricat says:

    So no fashion this year, just the costumes from Showgirls.
    I love fashion that teases and tempts and allows you to imagine; I love a sexy outfit. But there’s no fun this year, just an open-air flea market with all the goods out. Next year, just come naked. We’ve seen it all anyway.

  14. Emily says:

    We’ve essentially seen Megan’s look from Kim K already, including the wet hair.

  15. Millennial says:

    Well I’ll give the early 00’s celebrities their due – they know how to do a VMAs red carpet. Where are the Gen Z celebs? Minus Lil Nas X they are boring af.

  16. EnormousCoat says:

    Conor McGregor is repugnant. He’s been accused of rape in Ireland (and elsewhere, I believe) and he has other incidences of violence on his record. He’s vile.

  17. Ninks says:

    Someday very soon somebody is going to walk a red carpet completely naked.

    • ME says:

      It will happen. I thought the majority of the women yesterday looked like cheap hookers. Sorry but it’s getting ridiculous. The performances seemed like they were all competing for the best stripper award or something. It’s getting really really out of hand. I remember watching award shows as a kid. I don’t think kids would be able to watch these shows anymore since they are so damn raunchy now.

    • Size Does Matter says:

      It’s a competition for who can most creatively almost be naked. Bonus points for straps and glitter.

    • Alarmjaguar says:

      I wish they would and just get it out of the way. That would be shocking and interesting. These looks are just boring after awhile.

    • schmootc says:

      But will they wear shoes or not?

    • Amy Too says:

      “Who are you wearing?”
      “It’s a Sperm by Egg collab”

  18. Eurydice says:

    Poor Kourtney, with her cheerful smile – it’s like she wandered into a convention for Bladerunner androids.

  19. Arpeggi says:

    Is it just a weird light trick or does Meghan have hepatitis? That yellow hue does not seem healthy or sexy

    And yeah, all the looks are fug. So much money to look like that?!

  20. August Rain says:

    Camila Cabello looks disappointed not to have received the memo with the dress code of “the non-dress / am I wearing panties or not?”.

  21. Nievie says:

    i’m really enjoying Meghan’s renaissance at the moment. If she wants to wear nothing to the VMAs let her have at it….body tone like that doesn’t last forever xD Unless of course you’re Madonna!.

  22. August Rain says:

    When I see this fashion I just realize that the Kardashian sense of fashion is in. I don’t adore it but I love the fact that none of these women are rail thin. That’s a win. The naked-dress thing is – again- related to the Kardashian and JLo self-obsession and self-love. It’s weirdly un sensual to me – I’m attracted to women as much as men and this does nothing for me. When you have to spell out your sexiness, it ain’t sexy to me. But whatever rocks their boat. As long as they’re relatively comfortable 🤷🏽‍♀️

  23. Susan says:

    I want to say this out loud but fear getting lambasted…what is the appeal of Camilla Cabello? I don’t get it. Perhaps I am biased because my first real viewing of her was the “slow paparazzi walk” video with Shawn. That relationship, whatever it is, strikes me as odd. Try hard I guesss. I know I’m an oldie, but her music doesn’t resonate with me, and I can appreciate others’ of this generation. She’s no Dua Lipa!?!

  24. Smee says:

    I wondered when showing up nude would become fashion and we’re there!

  25. reef says:

    Megan Fox was the look of the night for me. It gave what the VMAs used to give. Her’s will be the only look most remember.

    • LaurenMichelle says:

      I thought Megan looked incredible. She has had 3 children! I hated all the other fashion choices, and Hailey was the Worst. Megan and MGK looked like they belonged there, everyone else is so boring.

  26. Anna says:

    There has to be some kind of panty built in right?!?! Omg! I guess I’m getting too old? Lol.

  27. Case says:

    I think it’s cute that Megan and MGK like to really go out-there with their fashion and complement each other. They’re cute. Travis and Kourtney too. Between those two couples and Bennifer 2.0, it feels like celebrity gossip is finally getting some interesting, fashionable, happy couples back. I don’t even remember the last time that happened.

  28. Mimi says:

    If I had Megan’s body I’d wear that dress too 😅

  29. Yellowrocket says:

    Conor mcGregor is scum. I don’t know how he’s allowed go to events like these. As an Irish woman it’s important to me that it is known internationally the depraved things he has done. I believe HER ✊☘️

  30. Jamie says:

    The seam on Fox’s dress looks like a tampon string hanging out.

  31. Jamie says:

    Camilla: “This dress has pocketttts!”

  32. MsIam says:

    None of the above. That’s my answer.

  33. Waitwhat? says:

    God, I wish the sheer dress trend would just die already.

  34. MF1 says:

    I sort of enjoy Megan’s look. It’s both simple and over the top. And the styling is excellent.

    However, all of these women in naked dresses (including her) look incredibly desperate. And that is the opposite of “cool.”

    I will say, I love MGK’s all red look. It rides the line between masculine and feminine perfectly.

  35. remarks says:

    None of this is my taste at all, but maybe they were all excited to be able to get out of the house and be seen during the pandemic without face-masks (or anything else).

  36. Lunasf17 says:

    I hate the fact that everyone is going to the same plastic surgeons and injectors and basically all look like wannabe Kardashians. That’s seriously preferred over just aging? Ok…..I’ll take some wrinkles over can’t move my face anymore. I heard a MGK song on the radio for the first time and it was exactly what you would expect from him. So try hard and generic. I don’t get his appeal and kind of surprised they are still together but hope they are happy.

  37. one of the Marys says:

    I liked Kourtney’s dress, it had a good rocker vibe without all the fuss of JLo’s look, exposed her just enough and was recognizably a dress lol
    I find men like Travis painful to look at

  38. Sam the Pink says:

    Eh, I feel like the “naked” dress thing isn’t even shocking anymore. It was shocking when Rose McGowan did it. It was even scandalous when Lil Kim did it. Now? It just looks like a play for attention. Though if I had birthed 3 babies and still looked that good, I’d probably want to show it off too.

  39. Carolnr says:

    Did Billie Ellish just shade JL at the VMA’s?
    MTV cameras caught Billie Ellish twiddling her finger, instead of clapping when JL took the stage.
    JL’s outfit could have been so much better if there wasn’t so much going on with it. Either go with the top & simpler skirt or go with the skirt & simpler top. ( not so many cut- outs) if this outfit was presented on Project Runway, I feel it would have been critiqued negatively.
    JL overall looked great, especially after flying in from Venice…I don’t know how she was not jetlagged!

    • Holland S says:

      That’s what I REALLY want to know. When does JLo sleep? Is she a vampire? A master cat napper? Forget the skincare stuff…explain the sleep schedule.

      • Waitwhat? says:

        Private jet with bedroom? Or maybe first class in one of those bed-cabins (I was once upgraded to Business class on a Qatar Airways flight and peeked into those. I was doing long-haul flights for work and fantasised about the cabins for months, lol ). Also she doesn’t have to get there 3 hours early and hang about at the gate like us peasants.

        Plus magic, of course.

  40. Milkweed says:

    MF and MGK are so 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥! I think they nailed the assignment.

  41. judith A reeder says:

    Im sorry. she might as well have gone in her underwear. looks ridiculous!!!

  42. Kathryn says:

    I’m assuming only vaccinated people were allowed to attend this? I live in NY so I assume so. I’ve been shocked by the amount of massive events I’ve seen lately (festivals, concerts, etc) with almost no mention of covid. Despite the delta variant are we all doing the American thing now where we just move on and pretend it never happened? If you die, you die? Hearing so much lately about delayed office returns and the Delta variant and then things like this are happening. A friend of mine’s company has an indefinitely delayed office return but is bussing thousands of their employees to a different state for a casino weekend next week. Feels like two different realities at the moment.

  43. Umm says:

    Lotttta salty women in this thread doing the same shit guys do when women wear a skirt they think is too short. They look great, flaunt it if you got it. If you don’t and won’t, don’t hate on those that, do.

    • blisteringsun says:

      agreed. also hard eyerolls at the ‘you’re a mother’ and ‘people will be walking the red carpet naked soon’ comments. people have been saying the same crap for years. i think all the women look great (except for cabella, honestly). my biggest complaint is that it’s all pretty standard and boring. love avril’s pink. i do think megan’s dress might have looked better lined, not because omg she’s showing so much skin, but i’m just not sure her skin tone matches the tone of the dress.

      fashion comments still seem to be a place where women who support women feel comfortable talking about how gross and slutty other women are (and really, that’s what’s being said here. lots of verbal gymnastics to get around actually saying it, but that’s the definite subtext).

      • Maria says:

        To be fair, the “you’re a mother” comment wasn’t about her clothes but about her getting involved between Conor McGregor’s and MGK’s spat.

    • Otaku fairy says:

      Exactly. How pathetic is it that in the 21st century, people here are still on the old rapey “showing lots of skin= cheap hooker” argument? If these women tried these looks anywhere else the same people would be like “save it for the vmas! Time and place!”

    • remarks says:

      What if one genuinely thinks a dress is ugly though? The actual outfits don’t look pretty to me. I’ve seen long dresses critiqued as being ugly or frumpy or whatever else. I don’t see how critiquing this style of outfit would be any different.

      Maybe this is in style though — what do I know.

  44. Delphine says:

    Should have at least worn nude undies that matched the top.

  45. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Yawn. And complete ridiculousness. I’d love to be shocked and look at inventive and beautiful styling. Fredericks of Hollywood is not my thing. It’s old. It’s predictable. And I don’t care what kind of panties you are or aren’t wearing lol.

  46. Meh says:

    And you are doing the same shit guys do when you check them out, and sexualize them for only your gaze.

  47. differen screen name. says:

    I follow Avril Lavigne on Instagram and apparently she’s dating a punk rock guy with green hair–I think he’s been collaborating with MGK and Travis Barker. The two of them on their feeds are so the same sk8r boi style that they were back in the day and I kind of love it.

  48. J ferber says:

    I don’t get the shade for Meghan Fox. Yeah, she’s a mother, but so is Lopez. So what? If they can burn the place down with their hotness, hell to the yes. Neither look like “porn stars” and I’m not sure what porn stars are supposed to look like. I sure don’t believe that is the worst insult you can give. I’d be mortified if someone said I looked like a Karen. Remember, no man is ever called a John, bc that could be any man and they know it. And they don’t think anything is wrong with that.

  49. Sue M says:

    Doesn’t Megan Fox have three children? I just mean, damn, how does she looks so svelte and hot after three babies. If you got it, flaunt it. Not my cup of tea but she is a rock chick and it does work for her vibe. MGK looks terrific in that red sequinned suit. I say well done for the two of them. Kourtenay looks like she is playing dress up. I just don’t buy her as a rock chick. It’s just not her vibe. I realize she is dressing to match her boyfriend, but she just isn’t rock chick in personality style.

  50. thaisajs says:

    Between all of these women and Madonna….that some point can you stop dressing to please men and/or the media? I get it if a woman is dressing in provocative clothes because she wants to own her sexuality. But I can’t help but think some of this is older women trying to dress sexy to revive their careers and become more relevant. And the best way to get the Hollywood presses’ attention is by dressing up in basically nothing but a g-string and heels.

    It’s just kinda depressing. I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me.

    • Otaku fairy says:

      As much as I love Lil Nas X and everything he stands for, he is getting praised for something women-including other woc like Tinashe today- get written off as damaged and cheap for. That’s definitely worth looking at. Both male immodesty and female inmodesty appeal to men in some way, but it’s only women who get the “that appeals to men- therefore it can’t be your choice, it’s sad and cheap and upsetting. You don’t get to rebel against respectability politics” argument on the left. That’s not treating men and women equally.

  51. remarks says:

    The greasiness of Meghan Fox’s hair bothers me a bit. Maybe the dress would have paired better with a different hairstyle.

  52. Willow says:

    Sheer dresses over bikinis makes me think, shouldn’t you ladies be at the beach? But, it’s the MTV VMAs, and outrageous over-the-top fashion is the dress code.
    What I want to know is why a guy with a violent history was invited. And why was he still there, presenting awards on stage, after starting a fight?

  53. Jules says:

    Well for everyone arguing how she can decide what she wants to wear, in her interview with ET she intelligently states that MGK told her what to wear. ‘He was like, “You’re gonna be naked tonight.” I was like, “Whatever you say, daddy!”
    Like, TMI. Gross daddy talk. And no ladies, this is not empowering but I’m sure the feminists will somehow twist it that way.

    • schmootc says:

      Ew, that’s just gross. I mean, he’s into fashion and such clearly, maybe there’s a way for him to suggest it without saying, “You’re gonna be naked tonight”? Like when I used to go out with my friends in college, we’d say, “Oh, you should wear X, Y, Z, it looks cute on you.” Something like that, not controlling and weird and gross.

    • remarks says:

      I was wondering why she chose this outfit, not necessarily because the dress is see-through, but because I’ve seen her in much prettier, more flattering things. She usually looks more put-together. Something here looks a bit off and not quite right.

      If her boyfriend picked this outfit, well, then it’s all starting to…. make sense.

  54. Faye G says:

    These outfits all look pretty bad to me. I know it’s the VMAs but where is the originality and cleverness? Showing your ass is fine but just not that interesting anymore.

  55. Canuk says:

    Megan – we get it. You’re dating a ‘wild’ guy so now you have dress like a prostitute 24/7 to keep up with him. Yawn. Hailey Bieber looks so boring and empty. I cannot with Camilla Cabello.

  56. Otaku fairy says:

    Oh noes, a man wanted a woman to do something. That clearly means she must have compromised on her own deeply held boundaries and beliefs when she said yes. What other option could there be?

    BTW, it’s not empowering *for you* to say no to modesty. That doesn’t mean it’s not empowering for someone else.

  57. Bread and Circuses says:

    Love Megan Fox’s outfit mainly because she’s so beautiful she can pull it off.

    And, weirdly, I like Avril Lavigne’s oufit a surprising amount too.
