Megan Fox, Transformers star and millennial icon, finally said what we’ve all been thinking: low-rise jeans can go straight to hell, kick rocks, eat dirt, rot in a hole, and die.
By far the worst trend of the 2000s era (and yes, I’m including trucker hats in that statement), ultra-low-rise jeans were almost universally unflattering and always put the wearer at risk of an accidental butt crack reveal. There’s a reason we as a society stopped flashing the whale tail and started layering our tank tops.

But since Y2K fashion is “back,” the return of low-rise once again looms, and Fox ain’t having it. “If I had it my way, [those trends] wouldn’t come back,” she told Refinery29 in a recent conversation.
See Keira Knightley bravely risking a flash for the sake of the trend:
“It doesn’t matter where you’re at, I think every woman is like ‘I just ate lunch and I’m not going to be in these low-rise jeans and a crop top,” she said. Now, we here at Glamour think it’s not so much a body issue (if you just ate a big meal, so what?), but the discomfort Fox is referring to is all too real: Spending all your energy ensuring your pants stay put during a quick trip to Starbucks? Go for it if you want, but that’s just not a journey I’m interested in right now (others may disagree). As the actor so aptly put it, “It’s not an outfit to wear all day.”
Now promoting her second collection with Boohoo, Fox also talked about what she is into. “I’ve been talking a lot about the idea of joy and playfulness, and I think that’s something that I would want women to experience when they’re getting dressed with the clothes,” she said. “It is obviously about body confidence but the idea of genuinely having fun, like having joy and a playful, childlike nature, when you’re getting dressed and expressing yourself.”
And ultra-low-rise jeans have no place in that. End of discussion. Thank you, Megan Fox.
