Gathering up the hottest young stars at Universal Studios, Variety's Power of Youth event took place on Saturday (July 27).

Tons of fresh faces were in attendance, including Abigail Breslin who donned a cream-colored gown with a brown leather jacket and heeled sandals.

"Mad Men" darling Kiernan Shipka looked fresh in a sleeveless crisp, white knee-length dress and strappy silver heels while Nina Dobrev stunned in a short-sleeved red dress and pointy gold heels.

Stepping out of his father's spotlight, Patrick Schwarzenegger looked quite studly in a charcoal T-shirt and faded black jeans, as Jennette McCurdy was all smiles in a short, sleeveless, white and black textured dress with bright pink heels.

Breakout "Beasts of the Southern Wild" star Quvenzhané Wallis wore an adorable sleeveless pink paisley dress with a puppy dog purse as she schmoozed with colleagues.

At the seventh annual event, top young talent are encouraged to become involved with philanthropic and humanitarian causes and to motivate others to do the same.
