Leave it to Megan Fox to leave her fans slack-jawed at Comic Con with her effortlessly sultry ensemble. Between the back crop top, lightly flared mini skirt, dangerously high heeled sandals, and neon pink lips, the tweenage boys in attendance simply didn't stand a chance. And paired with her glossy ombre curls and a toned physique that doesn't suggest it belongs to a mom of two, the look was quite explosive. Quite frankly, I feel for Will Arnette; with Megan Fox by his side, the actor is looking at an evening without media attention.
While the majority of non-celebrities might not rock this look in the light of day, it is ideal evening attire, especially when that evening entails cocktails, dancing, and swinging from chandeliers. The ensemble is actually quite simplistic, pairing a basic black color palette with perfectly fitted pieces and unexpected details for maximum impact. Tailoring is essential for nailing the look, however; with items so oversized they're falling off your frame, the ensemble reads more sloppy than seductive. And the perfect pair of black heeled sandals can make or break a streamlined statement like this outfit.
If you're feeling outlandish this weekend, read on for the four essentials you'll need to capture Megan Fox's Comic Con look.
1. BLACK CROP TOP
Though Jonathan Simkhai's V Neck Cutout Crop Top may look prim in the front, it's a party in the back thanks to criss-cross, shoulder-baring details.
2. BLACK MINI SKIRT
Add a lightly flared miniskirt to your ensemble to evoke Megan Fox's look. Robert Rodriguez's Zipped Flounce Skirt contains edgy detailing on the front which adds a modern twist to the basic mini.
3. BLACK STRAPPY SANDALS
To achieve the same eye-catching, intricate effect as Fox's heels, try a patent leather pair with intertwined straps like Brian Atwood's Gwen Patent-Leather Sandals.
4. PINK LIP GLOSS
