Megan Fox on the cover of Nylon

We always imagine Megan Fox to be more bombshell beauty than indie girl. But the editors at Nylon gave the actress an edgy makeover for the magazine's October issue.

On the cover of the cool kid bible, Fox is actually covered up for once -- wearing a baggy tee, flannel shirt, "Dynasty"-shouldered blazer and high-waisted mom jean cut-offs (this is a Nylon cover, after all).

The inside spread finds Fox a tad more, um foxy, wearing short-shorts with a more finished inseam, the blazer-layered-over-plaid thing again and a flash of her bad girl tattoos.

Surprisingly, she looks almost cool. But will Nylon's more alternative readers really buy it?

It's safe to safe to say the 23-year-old actress is known more for her busty physique (often shown off in men's magazines) than for her on-screen skills in flicks like "Transformers" and the new thriller "Jennifer's Body."

So, we'd be surprised if her placement on Nylon's cover won't result in a little bit of displeasure from the magazine's hipster fans.

We're hoping they at least appreciate Nylon's stylists and editor-in-chief Marvin Scott Jarrett (who shot the cover and inside spread) for sparing them from images of Fox's over-exposed cleavage.
