Haliee Steinfeld, Michelle Williams and Mandy MooreThe red carpet showcase at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards has tipped off, and we've already noticed a strong (and gorgeous) trend of sheer beaded gowns coming on quite strong.

The first lady to step out in one of these dazzling numbers was best supporting actress nominee Hailee Steinfeld.

The 14-year-old continued to prove that she's not only talented beyond her years, but also supremely sartorially savvy, opting for a ballgown by Marchesa that she helped design alongside designer Georgina Chapman.

"From the beginning, when I knew I'd be here, I drew something out, and this is exactly what I had in mind!" the youngster told Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet. "I'm absolutely in love with it."
