Could Elle Fanning be ushering in a brand-new style era? It certainly seemed so when the 23-year-old Maleficent star waltzed the red (though technically emerald) carpet at the 2021 LACMA Art + Film Gala in a getup that eschewed her usual penchant for dreamy pastels and delicate floral patterns. While attending the star-studded event in Los Angeles, Elle oozed goth goddess energy in a sheer black gown that, similar to outfits worn by most other attendees, is the brainchild of Gucci Creative Director Alessandro Michele. The edgy dress featured numerous cutouts - on the sleeves, sides, and, most noticeably, the back - and a completely see-through skirt. Hot damn, we see you, Elle!

Stylist Samantha McMillen helped the star choose her accessories for the occasion: black flower hair clips secured into her slicked-back bun, a gold clutch, chunky silver rings, a purple sequin flower brooch, and sky-high platform pumps that made my ankles wobbly just by glancing at 'em. If you're ready to audibly gasp, read ahead to take an all-angles look at Elle's sultry outfit, and be sure to zoom in on those wild heels of hers.
