Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly can rest easy tonight knowing they have already snagged the only award that matters during the MTV VMAs: sexiest couple at the award show. The pair shut down the red carpet with Fox donning a fully sheer, beaded Mugler dress—with matching sparkly thong and nude bralette—and Kelly wearing an all red glittery suit.
Fox also shared their looks on Instagram, pairing the flawless pics with the very cheeky caption: "Daddy’s gonna win a VMA."

The actress's "naked dress" may be an homage to Rose McGowan's iconic 1998 VMAs look that was similarly sparkly and completely sheer. It's also not surprising that MGK and Fox donned coordinated looks. Fox recently explained to the New York Post that she's "heavily influenced by whatever [MGK] pulls out of his closet." She also revealed that their twinning looks stemmed from a trip to Palm Springs when MGK suggested they get matching manicures and things snowballed from there.
“I haven’t seen two grown adult people match their outfits this way,” Fox told the outlet. “There’s a fun element that maybe people have been missing. You know, we’re not too serious.”
Kelly and Fox met in March 2020 on the set of their film Midnight In The Switchgrass and the actress appeared in the singer's music video for "Bloody Valentine" shortly after. By June 2020, they were official and things are reportedly getting serious for the couple—Fox was spotted at VMAs' rehearsals wearing a ring on THAT finger. Rumors are now swirling that Kelly may make a big announcement during his "Papercuts" performance alongside Travis Barker.
Though it's not completely surprising that things are moving quickly for the couple. The 35-year-old actress has previously called MGK her "twin flame."
"Instead of a soul mate, a twin flame is actually where a soul has ascended into a high enough level that it can be split into two different bodies at the same time," she said during a podcast interview. "So we're actually two halves of the same soul, I think. And I said that to him almost immediately, because I felt it right away."
