Leave it to Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly to give gothic punk style a glamorous twist — especially on the red carpet. The superstar couple arrived in coordinating ensembles specifically for the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas.
Fox blossomed on the carpet in a slick black David Koma gown styled by Maeve Reilly. The actress’ daring dress included a plunging pointed neckline and risque thigh-high slit, both accented with sheer nude panels for added coverage. The piece was paired long gloves that also made a daring statement, with their hems shaped like large flowers covered in sparkling crystals. For a finishing touch, Fox strapped into sky-high black platform sandals with clear PVC straps and heels totaling nearly six inches in height.
Machine Gun Kelly, meanwhile, arrived in another revamped take on menswear. Styled by Adam Ballheim, his Dolce and Gabbana outfit included low-rise black trousers and a matching cropped blazer with thin silver pyramid spikes lining each. The spiky set was layered over a black turtleneck top with fingerless glove sleeves, all coated in sparkling crystals. Finishing his look were layered rings, earrings and pointed black leather boots lined with small silver spikes.
