From sparkly, sequined frocks to ruffles galore, it's clear Elle Fanning isn't one to shy away a major red carpet fashion moment. And in what is one of our favorite appearances of hers to date, the 18-year-old actress wore a tulle strapless gown from Marc Jacobs's resort 2017 collection to Variety's Power of Young Hollywood event on Tuesday. Here, stars including Fanning, Jaden Smith and Ansel Elgort spoke on their experiences growing up in the spotlight and how they've dealt with online bullying.

The dress is seriously next-level. It's studded with embroidered patches and whimsical pins including dominoes, a champagne glass, a shooting star and a female surfer. It's basically the "Where's Waldo" version of eveningwear, and it's awesome. 

It's worth noting that the "Neon Demon" actress also kept her undergarments visible, styling the dress just as it came down the runway with a meant-to-be-seen colorblocked purple bralette. To keep all the attention on the gown, Fanning kept her accessories simple: elegant black satin pumps — also courtesy of Marc Jacobs — and a Christian Louboutin box clutch (not pictured). Fashion-minded youths of the Internet, take note.
