Hailee Steinfeld, the star of the new Transformers prequel, Bumblebee, attended the film's premiere at the TCL Chinese Theatre. The young woman was turning heads in her designer dress, and not just because she looked great in it. Well, see for yourself.

She was absolutely rocking it!

Some fans seemed a little confused.

The dress, designed by Balmain, is a black and white mini wrapped in a white cage. The design is like something out of Tron, wrapped in a 3-D printed skeleton. The mishmash of '80s nostalgia combined with a modern futurism represents the movie well, considering Bumblebee is a prequel to the Transformers franchise and takes place in 1987.

Steinfeld's appearance at the premiere wasn't just for the new movie. Afterward, she was treated to a surprise party for her 22nd birthday, complete with a cake and singing.

This isn't the first Balmain dress worn by the young star. At the premiere of the film in Berlin, she wore a body-sculpting dress with poofy shoulders and some very bold, lace-up boots.

In Bumblebee, Stanfield stars as Charlie Watson, a young girl who discovers the titular alien robot and helps him elude the evil Decepticons and the government. The film also stars John Cena, Angela Basset, and Justin Theroux. It premieres December 21, 2018.

But the people involved going their separate ways is better than staying in an unhealthy relationship.

Everyone looks back on their high school experience differently.

Some wish they could relive it all over again, while others are more than happy to put it all behind them and seldom, if ever, look back on it.

Of course, no matter if they look back on high school with pleasure or disdain, everyone has a few memories of their classmates.

Particularly the one who always seemed to be getting into trouble.

Constantly landing themselves in detention and, in more severe cases, landing themself in trouble with the authorities.

Some of these students thankfully grew out of their bullying days and have grown and learned to treat others with respect and kindness. Others were not so lucky, and still found themselves getting into trouble long after their school days were over.

Who among us hasn't seen things that made us think we were still asleep?

Sometimes those scary movie moments are a reality.

Once in a while, Michael Myers IS in the shadows.

There are so many unexplainable happenings that leave our nerves wrecked.

As I type this, I swear I can hear moving in the bushes outside.

I'm not in the mood to be terrorized before bed.

There are some books that simply do not work for us, while others stick with us forever.
