Nina Dobrev joined some of Hollywood’s biggest stars at Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party in West Hollywood last night.

The ‘Vampire Diaries’ actress looked beautiful in a black J.Mendel Fall 2012 gown, shown just a few weeks ago during his red-carpet ready Fall 2012 New York Fashion Week presentation.

With a cut-out detailed deep V-neck and pleated skirt, Nina shows just the right amount of skin, without fear of a wardrobe malfunction.

A sparkling Jimmy Choo clutch, Chopard jewels and Brian Atwood heels complete the look.
