It seems Megan Fox takes her boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly’s fashion advice very seriously.

The Jennifer’s Body star stole the spotlight at the MTV Video Music Awards last weekend, as she showed up in a totally sheer Mugler slip dress with a sparkling thong underneath.

The embroidered dress was designed by Casey Cadwallader for Mugler’s Spring Summer 2021 collection, and Megan paired it with a bralette, heels, the aforementioned thong and wet look hair. 

The daring look was compared to Rose McGowan’s iconic naked dress at the 1998 VMAs, which she wore as a statement while attending with then-boyfriend Marilyn Manson.

Megan revealed that the naked dress was all MGK’s idea, and what ‘Daddy’ wants, ‘Daddy’ gets. 

The 36-year-old told Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet: ‘He was like, “You’re gonna be naked tonight”.

‘I was like, “Whatever you say, daddy!”’

It seems ‘Daddy’ has stuck as a raunchy nickname for MGK, real name Colson Baker, as Megan also used the term of endearment on an Instagram post ahead of the awards show, writing: ‘Daddy’s gonna win a VMA.’

She wasn’t wrong, as Machine Gun Kelly won best alternative that night for his and Blackbear’s collaboration My Ex’s Best Friend.

Machine Gun Kelly didn’t slouch in the fashion department either, wearing an eye-catching red sequinned suit and gluing pearls to his face for the night.

However, he acknowledged he’d been beat by his girlfriend of over a year, saying: ‘It’s 50/50, this one she took the lead. I get the pleasure of having her on my arm all night, and she’s beautiful.’

Megan showed her love for her boyfriend as she and new bestie Kourtney Kardashian introduced MGK and Travis Barker’s performance at the show, with the actress shouting out their ‘future baby daddies’.

While the couple put on an amorous display at the VMAs, Megan flew solo the following night, attending the Met Gala for the very first time.

The Transformers star made an impact in a scarlet Dundas gown with a plunging neckline and lace-up sides, a thigh-high slit and a train.

The mother-of-three added a dramatic fringe to her hair and rocked red lips to bring the look together.

And it seems Megan was more than aware that she had totally won the weekend, as she shared side by side pictures of her Met Gala and VMAs looks to Instagram and wrote: ‘Just me out here ignoring and defying all of your puritanical emotionally repressed projections of what a woman should be.’

Megan is having a bit of a Hollywood renaissance as of late, returning to the big screen in films like Midnight In The Switchgrass and Till Death. 

Her red carpet resurgence came after her split from husband of 10 years Brian Austin Green last May, which was quickly followed by confirmation of her romance with Machine Gun Kelly, who she met on the set of Midnight In The Switchgrass.
