Just as I was about to cry myself to sleep at the lack of Elie Saab on the amfAR’s Cinema Against Aids Gala red carpet this evening, then up pops Nina Dobrev.

The young actress, who continues to earn her stripes on the red carpet, wore a vibrant electric-blue dress from the Elie Saab Spring 2012 collection.

Her off-shoulder fully sequin gown with a sexy side split was teamed with Bulgari jewels, silver Jimmy Choo ‘Lance’ sandals and a high bun.

With the bold colour, head-to-toe sequin’s and complementary accessories, Nina is really spoiling me with this look.

She more than held her own on this red carpet.
