Megan Fox made her acting debut in 2001 in “Holiday in the Sun.”
For the last 19 years, she’s consistently made bold style choices for the red carpet.
In honor of her 36th birthday on May 16, here are some of her most daring looks.
One of the first red carpets Fox attended was for “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” in October 2003. She established her edgy style with this plaid skirt and artfully shredded shirt.
Combining two seemingly disparate pieces (in this case, a school uniform-esque skirt and ripped up shirt) would become a major element of Fox’s style.
At the ABC Upfronts in May 2005, Fox combined a deep purple dress with a turquoise necklace, a gold clutch, and rose-red heels.
At the time, Fox was starring on the ABC sitcom “Hope & Faith” with Kelly Ripa, Faith Ford, and Ted McGinley.
For a Cosmopolitan party in September 2005, Fox paired low-rise shorts with a long-sleeved shirt and heels.
In another look that mixes disparate elements, Fox added a Nickelodeon-orange purse.
For a “Transformers” press conference in Seoul in June 2007, Fox wore a dress with a deep-V almost down to her belly button.
You can’t see it here, but the dress is almost entirely backless, too.
To walk the carpet at the 2008 MTV Movie Awards in June 2008, Fox picked this pink ballerina-style dress with a black tutu for a little edge.
Later that night, she donned this slinky white dress with silver chains that doubled as straps.
With Rainn Wilson, she co-presented the award for best kiss.
For the Berlin premiere of “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” in June 2009, she wore a crimson dress with a side cutout and a hip-high slit.
The cutout has a little snake detail that’s easy to miss.
She vamped at the UK premiere of the film with this backless black gown.
She paired the look with some glam waves.
At the 2009 Teen Choice Awards in August 2009, Fox wore this champagne strapless mini-dress and black pumps.
The dress, designed by Yves Saint Laurent, almost looks like an optical illusion.
The next year, at the “Jonah Hex” premiere in June 2010, Fox wore this bright red wrap dress with a plunging neckline, once again with black pumps.
This dress was designed by Armani Privé, and it has Old Hollywood starlet vibes, which Fox has talked about liking. She even had a tattoo of Marilyn Monroe’s face on her arm.
This long-sleeved dress Fox wore to the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” premiere on July 30, 2014, simultaneously looks like feathers, scales, and armor.
There’s a lot going on with this Zuhair Murad dress.
For a “TMNT” press conference in South Korea in August 2014, Fox wore a shimmery dress that makes her look like an ice skater.
This Jonathan Saunders dress has a sheer overlay over a miniskirt. She paired it with a bold leather belt, adding a little of her trademark edge.
For the Australian premiere of “TMNT” in September 2014, she chose a bright orange dress with side cutouts.
She wore her hair in a simple side braid, opting to let the Cushnie et Ochs dress speak for itself.
Fox looked ready for battle in this fierce little black dress with leather detailing at an October 2014 screening of “TMNT.”

This was one of Fox’s first red carpet events after giving birth to her third son, Journey, in 2016.
For an event in March 2018, Fox wore an interesting pair of jeans with a ribbon for a clasp and a lacy bodysuit.
We’re still not too sure how those jeans work, but it’s not the strangest denim we’ve ever seen.
She made menswear feminine with an oversized blazer with ruffled cuffs over a simple black dress for a November 2018 appearance on “Extra.”
This blazer was designed by Jonathan Simkhai and normally comes with matching pants.
She opted for another menswear-inspired look for an appearance on “Watch Watch Happens Live” the next day, this time with a golden, sparkly suit with dramatic lapels.
She paired the suit with two of her favorite accessories: black pumps and a red lip.
In December 2019, she wore a champagne satin dress that almost looked like lingerie.
This soft, feminine look designed by Blumarine differs from her usual edgy outfits.
When she walked the red carpet with boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly at the 2020 American Music Awards in November, she opted for an architectural, jade green dress with one sleeve.
In May 2021, Fox wore this barely there black dress to once again walk the red carpet with MGK, this time at the Billboard Music Awards.
This dress, which was designed by Mugler and looks like it was painted on her body, was the most-talked-about look of the evening — the only person who came close was her boyfriend, Machine Gun Kelly, who painted his tongue black.
Just a week later, Fox rocked this skin-tight satin two-piece with metallic straps for the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards.
Pink is one of Fox’s go-to colors, but these pants with subtle pulls at the ankles paired with silver heels with bows is one of her all-time best looks. It was designed by Mach & Mach.
At the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards, she wowed in a sheer, sparkly dress by Mugler.
The dress, which she wore with minimal accessories, was completely see-through apart from a ribbed top.
The very next day, she channeled Dita von Teese at the 2021 Met Gala with this red Dundas gown complete with a slit, criss-cross cutouts, and no back.
You can’t tell in this photo, but Fox’s Dundas dress is entirely backless. She paired the look with a hip-length braid, new bangs, and sky-high red heels.
Fox and her now-fiancé walked the red carpet joined by the pinky nails in December 2021.
Fox and Kelly, who got engaged in January 2022, attended the launch of Kelly’s genderless nail polish line linked together by a silver chain attached to their pierced pinky nails.
Of course, Fox’s outfit itself was also bold, wearing a low-cut blazer top with a black body chain over her exposed chest.
