I’m just as bad as your next fickle fashion fan in that — despite having a few big-name celebrities whose style I’ve loved for ages and probably will continue to love for years to come — my favorite fashion It-girl changes faster than my nail polish (read: at least three times a week). So it really takes a lot of hard work, great fashion, and masterful convincing to keep my attention and adoration focused on one up-and-coming star for very long — even if that celeb is one of these 14 amazing style stars to watch this year.
But one rising star on the film and style scene has recently caught my eye and kept it glued to her every red carpet move, thanks to a never-ending string of fabulous fashion and amazing designer duds that have absolutely wowed me at each and every turn: None other than Bates Motel and Transformers: Age of Extinction actress Nicola Peltz.
After popping onto the red-carpet scene with three amazing premiere looks in Hong Kong — which included an icy blue, jeweled Prada gown; a sexy leather crop top and lace skirt; and a simple-chic Stella McCartney slip dress — the actress continued to impress, stunning practically everyone when she showed up to the film's Shanghai premiere wearing the veritable piece of art that was her structured, peplum, and floral-embellished Giambattista Valli Couture gown.
But not satisfied to simply stop there, the starlet has kept the style hits coming, and — once and for all — has cemented herself as a total fashion It-girl with her latest look: a '70s-inspired, bright orange gown from one of her favorite Italian labels, Prada. And man, are there a lot of things to love about this look.
Sweeping her way across the red carpet, Peltz practically floated along in her breezy number, which looked both effortless and unbelievably sexy thanks to its draped fit, plunging neckline, and open back. Looking glamorous beyond her years, the 19-year-old actress styled the look to perfection, from the wrap-around neck scarf and lack of accessories to the exaggerated cat eye and slicked-back hair.
I know we're only a little more than halfway through the year, but this number is already high on my list of 2014's best red carpet gowns. And even if it doesn't finish the year at the top, it still does one thing: It proves that Peltz is certainly a fashion force to be reckoned with, and one who has a practically pristine reputation to live up to moving forward. No pressure, Peltz.
