Abigail Breslin is all grown up!

While attending Variety's Power of Youth event presented by Hasbro in L.A. this weekend, the now 17-year-old actress hit the red carpet looking very adult and channeling her inner blond bombshell.

The Little Miss Sunshine star looked gorgeous with her long blond hair flowing over her shoulders under a big bouffant. Breslin donned a long white dress under a cropped brown jacket and a colorful necklace while posing for pics before being honored with Variety's Power of Youth generationOn Award.

Breslin is of course known for her scene-stealing role in the 2006 comedy Little Miss Sunshine. She'll next be seen in Ender's Game with Harrison Ford and Hailee Steinfeld and in August: Osage County with Oscar winners Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts.

Other young stars who were honored during Saturday's event included Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev, The Fosters' Jake T. Austin, Teen Wolf hunk Tyler Posey, Bailee Madison and Oscar nominee Quvenzhané Wallis.
