Megan Fox is “frustrated” by her body. Emporio Armani is not.

You’re supposed to be looking at her underwear.

Granted, you may have been momentarily distracted. The pronounced hunch, the countable vertebrae, the concave abdomen — there’s a lot going on.

But if you ask Emporio Armani, Megan Fox is just doing a really great job of modeling their underwear.

Ask her trainer, Harley Pasternak, and he’ll tell you all about those other areas you may have been distracted by. “Do I worry about Megan getting too skinny? Yeah!”


Dodai Stewart does a great job of summing up the contradictory (and potentially contrived) messages surrounding Megan’s body (i.e. she’s “frustrated” by her thin frame and “really fast metabolism,” yet, she manages to cash in on them pretty effectively, thanks to those Armani ads).

Check out the post on Jezebel and decide for yourself if protruding bones are just the newest way to sell skivvies (right, Adriana Lima?).
