Megan Fox recently opened up about her 6-year-old son Noah's love of fashion.

The actress and mother-of-three shared on "The Talk" that her "very talented" oldest son loves to draw and design outfits -- and sometimes helps her pick out her own looks.

"He's still 6 so, when I do fittings -- like, I did one recently and I had this really beautiful yellow dress on, he kept draping it in a way where he's like, 'If we do it like this, it looks like a diaper!'" she explained with a laugh.

She said she allows her son to express himself in whatever way he prefers.

"Sometimes, he'll dress himself and he likes to wear dresses sometimes," she said. "And I send him to a really liberal, hippy school, but even there, here in California, he still has little boys going, 'Boys don't wear dresses,' or 'Boys don't wear pink.'"

She said after that, Noah had stopped wearing dresses but recently decided to wear one to school.

"He came home and I was like, 'How was it? Did any of the friends at school have anything to say?' And he was like, ‘Well, all the boys laughed when I came in, but I don’t care. I love dresses too much.'"

"I'm trying to teach him to be confident no matter what anyone else says," she added.

Fox's husband, actor Brian Austin Green, also expressed his support for his oldest son's fashion choices back in 2017.

"I've heard from some people that they don't agree -- they don't agree with him wearing dresses," he said on Hollywood Pipeline's "Straight From The Source."

"To them I say, 'I don't care.' He's 4 and if he wants to wear it, then he wears it. It's dresses or goggles or slippers -- whatever. It's his life," he added.
