@HaileeSteinfeld I printed this dress in my 3D printer.— Steven Sewell (@Steven Sewell)1544467083.0
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.
