Megan Fox bringing corsets back

Megan Fox gives her nod of approval to her Wild West wardrobe in the newest box office debut, Jonah Hex. The former Transformers beauty dons a 19th century corset that reduced her waist to 18-inches for her role as the gun swinging prostitute, Lilah. The movie opened this past weekend where Fox stars alongside Josh Brolin in the title role.

“The wardrobe used in Jonah Hex accurately represents the mid-19th century, particularly paying homage to the early burlesque period, portrayed in Megan Fox's character. The front busk closure was very popular at that time, as well as the fingerless gloves she wears in many scenes,” says Elaine Carson, senior designer at Coquette International.

Although Fox stated in a recent interview that it was difficult to shoot her action scenes in a restrictive wardrobe, she got used to and enjoyed wearing a corset, amazed at the inches it skimmed off her waist.

“Corsetry is definitely not a thing of the past. They still have a purpose and can always surprise you when you put one on. They can look sexy as outerwear, or they can trim inches under clothing. Corsets provide women with the opportunity to conveniently change their appearance,” adds Carson.
