Nina Dobrev was nominated for her hit television show ‘The Vampire Diaries’ at the 2012 People’s Choice Awards this evening.

Her Elie Saab Spring 2012 dress with lace sleeves was yet another sexy, chic sophisticated look for the young actress.

She opted to switch things up on this occasion, going for pin-straight hair instead of waves with smoky eye makeup.

The Kelly green dress truly pops against Nina’s long dark hair. This particular shade was a popular choice for awards’ season last year, so it will be interesting to see if the trend repeats itself this year.

Nude sandals were paired with a fun circular Lauren Merkin clutch to complete the look.
