Despite many people’s aversion to the style, the bootcut-jean trend that dominated the denim world from the late ‘90s to the end of the ‘00s appears to be making a comeback—and it’s Megan Fox that’s leading the charge. On Sunday, while in Berlin with fiancé Machine Gun Kelly for the presentation of their new movie Taurus at the Berlin International Film Festival, the Jennifer’s Body actress was seen sporting a pair of mid-wash, bootcut jeans, styled with white pumps (of course, because what’s a bootcut jean without a pump to go with?), a brown tube top, and a leather shacket.
Though she’s arguably the biggest name to bring back the controversial silhouette thus far, she’s hardly the first. In fact, the Instagram fashion scene has been wearing the denim style a lot lately, paired with everything from heeled boots to loafers. But Fox’s take is the one that most tugs at our heart strings. After all, nothing says ‘90s like bootcut jeans slouched over a point-toe heel.
