Goodness, gracious! Ellie Goulding glowed in a white dress at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards.

The floor-length gown was definitely understated, but it was tailored to a T. The entire ensemble fit Ellie perfectly, while the subtle side cutouts added a modern edge. Ellie opted for dainty jewelry, including a simple stack of bangles, stud earrings and a ring, which was a good choice. Bold accessories would have overwhelmed the look and nixed the effortless vibe. We also love that everything is neutral. No pops of color necessary!

Additional props go to the singer's wavy, tousled hair. She has that just-rolled-out-of-bed-but-still-look-totally-polished look down pat. We approve!

Seriously, could she look any more beautiful? Ellie is beaming, as she should be. She looks amazing!

Bonus points for nailing the makeup. The fresh-faced look is always a win, and Ellie's inner glow is dazzling. Spill your secrets, girl!
