Nina Dobrev attended ‘The Ripple Effect’ charity event, which was held at the Sunset Luxe Hotel in LA this weekend.
‘The Vampire Diaries’ actress opted for a demure Monique Lhuillier Fall 2011 dress.
Her corseted black lace dress with long sleeves and a fitted skirt was accessorised with a black Rena Caovilla Swarovski crystallized clutch.
As Nina is going for very grown-up red carpet looks, I understand why she opted not to wear the bow.
I think the dress looks far better without it plus the fashion-forward pumps and the cutesy bow would’ve contradicted each other.
A simple ponytail, diamond drop earrings and pink lips completed her look.
If you had said to me at the beginning of the year that Nina Dobrev would be the one-to-watch on the red carpet, I would’ve said you were crazy.
Funny how thinks change at the turn of a dress, or a new stylist.
