Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly contin.ued their daring red carpet looks at the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards.
Fox, 35, wore a sheer Mugler gown with crystals over an embellished thong and nude corset bra on the red carpet for Kelly’s VMA debut. The outfit seemingly channeled Rose McGowan’s famed “naked” dress from the 1999 VMA Awards show.
Kelly (real name Colson Baker, 31) showed off his final make-up touches on Instagram Stories before hitting the red carpet. The rapper went bold in a bright red metallic suit with pearl accents on his face.
Kelly discussed how he collaborates on fashion with Fox for red carpet appearances. “It’s 50/50,” Kelly said during the VMA Awards pre-show. “This one she took the lead and I get the pleasure of having her on my arm all night.”

“She’s beautiful,” Kelly added.
Kelly later posted photos of the two from the red carpet on Instagram with the caption, “I found a mermaid.”
Machine Gun Kelly and Conor McGregor tussle on red carpet
The red carpet was not all about love. Kelly and Irish MMA fighter Conor McGregor appeared to scuffle before going backstage at Brooklyn’s Barclay Center.
Photos and videos appear to show Kelly and McGregor, 33, being held apart by security, and with Fox shielding Kelly.
VMAs: Brutally honest performance reviews
McGregor’s press representative told USA TODAY via email:
“It’s unfortunate that MGK’s security overreacted. Conor and Dee enjoyed the performances.”
Kelly’s representative and MTV VMA Awards reps did not respond to USA TODAY’s requests for comment.

McGregor, who attended the awards with wife Dee Devlin, told USA TODAY before the fracas that he was presenting an award for which Justin Bieber was nominated.
“He’s my friend. JB is doing some great things this year. I’d like to see him win it,” said McGregor. “(The VMAs crowd) is a way different audience than I’m used to in the fight game. The last time I came here to Barclays Center, I came in through the side door. This time, I’m back on the red carpet.”
Neither Kelly nor McGregor alluded to the fracas during their moments onstage.
