Despite many people's aversion to the style, the bootcut-jeans 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 who's leading the charge. While in Berlin with fiancé Machine Gun Kelly for the presentation of their new movie Taurus at the Berlin International Film Festival on Sunday, the Jennifer's Body actress was seen sporting a pair of mid-wash, bootcut jeans styled with white pumps (what are bootcut jeans without pumps to go with them?), 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, pairing it with everything from heeled boots to loafers. But Fox's take is the one that tugs at our heartstrings. After all, nothing says '90s like bootcut jeans slouched over point-toe heels.
