Nina Dobrev In Elie Saab – 2012 People’s Choice Awards

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.

    Jx love d colour!

    I love the color but that’s about it. The neckline is too low, and I want to love the sleeves but can’t…
    The shoes make her feet look very large, which i am sure is not the case!

  3. I seem to be in the minority but I really don’t like this dress. The green is too cold against her skin, the sleeves should be left to some 70-year-old UES socialite and the accessories are totally wrong. Hair and face are flawless, though.

    Its not often that I am bored by an Elie Saab outfit but Nina’s look proves me wrong. It’s just so dull. Even the gorgeous colour can’t save this look from faling flat.

    Don’t like the shoes but that green Saab is lovely on her.

    This is a strong competitor for WCE – Worst Combination Ever ..
    …… And the dress is just ugly …

  7. Heather January 12, 2012 at 14:33 #

    I’m more disturbed by the constant presence of boring nude shoes on her.

    I like this look rather sophisticated yet playful and a beautiful colour on her.

  11. Emi January 12, 2012 at 13:31 #

    Nice dress, ugly accessories.

  12. Molly January 12, 2012 at 12:15 #

    There is no way that this is Elie. It looks so cheap. It could have worked but Nina’s prom posing and horrible choice of accessories don’t help. I do like the color.

  13. Li January 12, 2012 at 11:38 #

    Not a fan of the sleeves but LOVE the colour.

  14. mm January 12, 2012 at 10:32 #

    Dont like the style of shoe.

  15. Pin January 12, 2012 at 10:19 #

    I really dislike this colour – so brash & harsh.

  16. Nat January 12, 2012 at 09:33 #

    This look and Ginnifer Goodwin’s look prove that stars should more often go for bold colours on the red carpet.
    I love this look and the fact that she kept her hair down.

  17. Annie January 12, 2012 at 09:25 #

    i love nina, but the sleeves make her look to broad at the shoulders!

  18. C January 12, 2012 at 09:12 #

    i just can’t like this dress…looks like a “mother of the groom” gown..

  19. Jess2 January 12, 2012 at 08:54 #

    I agree with the above Demi Moore reference!! Nina looks beautiful, the colour is amazing and the styling is great!! Love her hair

  20. rachelk January 12, 2012 at 05:29 #

    she DOES look like demi moore! its the hair and the sophisticated dress. she looks so chic! great color w her skin

  21. Aline January 12, 2012 at 04:23 #

    It kinda hurts my soul to say this about an Elie Saab, but I don’t like the dress :333

    I do agree though that the color looks great on her.

    She is the young Demi Moore

    • Alina January 12, 2012 at 06:07 #


      The colour is stunning on her.

    • TeaAtTwo January 12, 2012 at 13:28 #

      Then she should be wearing black. 😉

  23. Amber January 12, 2012 at 03:25 #

    Love this color on her. hate the sleeves though, looks like moss growing on her.

  24. charmedsage January 12, 2012 at 03:24 #

    The sleeves look better from afar, or maybe it’s just the angle. Despite that, she looks great.

  25. Jacqu January 12, 2012 at 03:16 #

    For some reason when I first saw the thumbnail I thought: Demi Moore. I don’t fancy the sleeves, I think it ages the look.
