When it comes to style inspiration, Megan Fox gets everything she needs from boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly.

Fox, 35, who met Kelly while shooting the film Midnight in the Switchgrass in March 2020, said that Kelly's wacky fashion sense has had a significant influence on her.

“I’m heavily influenced by whatever he pulls out of his closet,” Fox told the New York Post, adding that Kelly is “always wearing something insane.”

One has to wonder if Kelly's influence played into Fox's recent Instagram photo, which showed the stunning actress in a black lingerie-inspired outfit worn underneath an ankle-length black coat and paired with thigh-high black boots.

"Guys I had a business meeting today," Fox captioned the photo, which showed her walking down a city street in the risqué outfit. "I made sure to wear something subtle and professional."

Last month, Fox showed off a similarly unique outfit while heading out for groceries. Wearing a neon green bodysuit with a cutout that showed off her torso, Fox paired the one-piece with jeans bleached with a pebble pattern and a matching jacket, Yahoo Life previously reported.

"This is how I go to Erewhon now. Let’s talk about it," she captioned the Instagram post, referring to the popular upscale health food store.

But it seems Kelly's influence over Fox goes far beyond the clothes she wears. In the same interview, Fox added that Kelly even plays a role in the way she gets her nails done.

“We went on a trip to Palm Springs when we were first dating, and he brought me over to the house and was like, ‘Let’s get matching manicures,’” Fox said. “Then it sort of stuck ever since.”

Their similar nail styles were on display at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, where Kelly had pink detailing on his nails which matched Fox's hot pink satin jumpsuit. While that moment wasn't necessarily planned ("“We were just wanting to go together, kind of … then people decided we were matching,” Fox said. “It wasn’t necessarily a planned thing … That’s just how it flowed") the duo ultimately decided that tying their outfits together worked for them.

"I haven’t seen two grown adult people match their outfits this way,” Fox said. “Maybe it’s like something you think about [in] high school or middle school even. There’s a fun element that maybe people have been missing. You know, we’re not too serious.”

One area where Kelly doesn't skimp is skincare. Fox shared that while most people assume he couldn't care less, Kelly is actually a star when it comes to caring for his skin.

“When we first started dating, you would think that he, like, just rolls out of bed like he slept in a pile of cigarettes and goes to work just like that,” Fox said. However, it turns out Kelly has “crazy skincare game” thanks to “thousands of dollars’ worth” of products.

“He actually puts a ton of effort into that face,” she explained, adding that she's “really into” skincare herself. One helpful beauty tip she shared with her beau? “Don’t do illegal substances, stuff like that.”
