The MTV Video Music Awards 2021 red carpet saw the boldest looks by the biggest celebrities from the industry on Sunday, September 12 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. However, the hottest couple of the night was Megan Fox and her musician boyfriend, Machine Gun Kelly. The actor walked the 2021 VMAs red carpet with her boyfriend and dared to go bare in a sheer Mugler dress.

Megan Fox arrived in a completely sheer custom Thierry Mugler dress which was styled by Maeve Reily. Both Machine Gun Kelly and Megan shared pictures of their looks on Instagram, which went viral in an instant. The 35-year-old actress wore the nude dress with a bedazzling thong underneath, a pair of Jimmy Choo pumps, and Lorraine Schwartz jewels. Her dress was designed by Mugler's current creative director, Casey Cadwallader.

Megan Fox said she was dressed nearly naked on the red carpet in an effort to fight “puritanical” projections of what women should be. “Just me out here ignoring and defying all of your puritanical emotionally repressed projections of what a woman should be,” the actress captioned her post on Instagram.

Megan's idea of women's representation however did not go down well with netizens, who questioned how such a look would prevent society from misrepresenting women. 'This is the epitome of contradiction,' a Twitter user wrote, reacting to Megan's caption.
