Though Megan Fox’s wardrobe has certainly transformed into something else entirely today, the actress has worn some of our favorite fashion trends from the early aughts during her onscreen career. She starred as Brianna alongside Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen in Holiday in the Sun and opposite Lindsay Lohan in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, all the while sporting tube dresses, low-slung denim, butterfly clips, and brightly colored shoulder bags. Her TV series Hope & Faith, which aired from 2004 to 2006, followed suit, introducing ultragirly trends like Hello Kitty jewelry and peasant blouses.
All of this led to her significant moment as Jennifer in Jennifer’s Body, when she walked through the high-school hallway in a heart-covered pink velour track jacket that was famously part of Gap’s Valentine’s Day collection. Megan played Mikaela Banes in the Transformers franchise, often looking straight out of an Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue. These are all style moves we can appreciate today, as we see the fashion world rewrite pages from the 2000s playbook and bring back everything from Tiffany & Co.’s signature chunky chain link to, dare we say it, low-slung denim. Dive deep into the Megan Fox archives and allow her outfits to inspire you.
Tiffany & Co. Necklaces and Dooney & Bourke Bags
Carla and her friends had leather jackets, polos, graphic tees, and the rest of the accessory essentials in 2004’s Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen.
In Jennifer’s Body, Megan wore a heart-covered velour track jacket from what was actually a Gap Valentine’s Day collection with heart-shaped earrings, low-slung denim, and pink, lace-up espadrilles.

Crystal Studded Heels
Megan played Sophie alongside Kirsten Dunst in 2008’s How to Lose Friends & Alienate People, jumping in the pool in this plunging lavender dress paired with crystal-studded metallic stilettos from Gina. Believe it or not, you can still shop vintage mules like these on eBay.
Cropped Cardigans and Polos
This layered look was a match made in heaven in the early 2000s, and in Jennifer’s Body, Megan even teamed it with the quintessential True Religion jeans.
Hello Kitty Jewelry
In 2005, Megan’s Hope & Faith character, Sydney, jumped on the Hello Kitty bandwagon with this ball chain-link necklace.
Megan’s Transformers look had that classic Abercrombie & Fitch vibe with a belted denim miniskirt, turquoise beaded hoops, and a coral ribbed tank that revealed a rainbow, halter-style bikni top.
Sydney’s low-slung denim of choice was this super-short pleated denim miniskirt paired with a white peasant crop top in a 2004 episode of Hope & Faith.
Sure enough, this Hope & Faith episode from 2005 included butterfly clips and a tangerine tank with velvet piping.
Who could forget the dimension that came with layering two vibrantly colored ribbed tanks, as Megan exhibited here in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen?
