If you don't know Nicola Peltz already, you should. The 19-year-old actress stars in the recently released Transformers: Age of Extinction and during her press tour for the film, the on-the-rise actress has hit the red carpet in a number of fashion-forward, wedding-worthy looks. We're not just talking your average celebrity in a pretty white dress. Think: ultra-modern sheaths, cool cutouts, illusion skirts and pretty peplums. Plus, it doesn't hurt that she's enhanced her Brigitte Bardot-esque features with the perfect cateye and nude lip, and hairstyles that look as though they were ready-made to walk down an aisle. And while she may seem a bit young to be a bridal style icon, this new kid on the block's fashion sense is way wise beyond its years.
To celebrate this newcomer, we're taking a look at three of her most recent wedding-ready stunners — and, of course, showing you how to get Peltz's looks for yourself!

First up, Peltz's most recent stunning white dress choice: A winning (and, in our opinion, pretty genius) combination of a Stella McCartney bodysuit featuring triangular cutouts at the waist and a sheer Dolce & Gabanna lace skirt she wore to Transformers press conference in Berlin, Germany last night.

While you absolutely could, and should, pair together separates to achieve this look, there were two similar lace illusion-skirt designs on recent bridal designer runways that rang a similar bell to Peltz's masterful coordinating. One, an Angel Sanchez lace Spring 2015 lace sheath with sheer legs and an opaque bodice (at left). The other, an even sheerer lace illusion skirt on an Elizabeth Filmore silk sheath (at right). Both, traded on-trend cutouts for the very popular illusion neckline.

We are utterly obsessed with Peltz's next look, a bias-cut, long-sleeve white sheath. Everything from the perfect fit to the structural darts make this gown as glamorous as it is understated (as we mentioned above, her beauty look here, too, is insanely gorgeous).

Plently of sleek and modern designs walked the recent bridal runways, making it easy to emulate this look for yourself. Pronovias presented a nearly identical silk crepe sheath in its 2014 runway show, but with the added bonus of a banded waist (at left), while Houghton offers a less-fitted long-sleeve straight-lined dress (at right). If you want to ditch the long sleeves, Amsale also boasts plenty of sleek and simple designs, including this sleeveless sheath (at center).

Last but not least: Peltz's whimsical peplum. The fluttery layered look is heavily-embellished — just like a few of our favorite designer wedding dresses!

If you're looking to have a princess moment, you'll adore this Rafael Cennamo ball gown, that boasts a similarly adorned peplum à la Peltz's (at left). Alberta Ferretti's textured bodice goes for full-on whimsy with its airy A-line skirt (at center), while Monique Lhuillier showed a more modern asymmetrical floral-embellished peplum two seasons ago (at right).

We're excited to see what other exciting red carpet looks are to come from this budding movie star!
