Megan Fox’s lace-up, red number for the 2021 Met Gala took 50 people to make, according to her stylist Maeve Reilly, which makes a lot of sense when you take in all the beading, lacing, and embroidery on the gown. The fiery piece was a custom creation by Dundas, and given how it’s expertly tailored to her body, it checks out.

Similar to her VMAs look from Sept. 12, Fox’s dress is all about body-ody-ody. The ties that connect her plunging neckline form a traditional criss-cross pattern down to her belly button, but the ties on her upper thigh slits sit in a unique, spiderweb-like pattern.

The beading throughout the dress flows through a multitude of patterns. There are swirls designs, stripes, and more, all carefully crafted by hand.

Trains were trending at the 2021 Met Gala. Alongside Fox, Kim Kardashian, Lil Nas X, J.Lo, and many other wore the sweeping style.

Peep the ankle-breakers Fox dared to wear on the Met Gala’s long line of stairs. Rocking these three-inch stilettos and not even so much as stumbling may be the most impressive feat of the whole night.

For her hair and makeup, Fox tapped Andrew Fitzsimons and Ash K Holm, respectfully. Fitzsimmons used Living Proof hair products to style her bangs and sleek ponytail. Holm used a combo of BYBI skin care, BUXOM makeup, and KISS Lashes to craft Fox’s classic red-lip look.

Could this dress also be a nod to boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly? At the Sept. 12 VMAs, the rapper wore a suit in the exact same shade of red.

“A woman who's intelligent and also knows how to weaponize her beauty — there's nothing more dangerous than that,” Fox told Vogue on the Met Gala stairs. Safe to say it doesn’t get more dangerous than Fox.
