Nina Dobrev In J Mendel - 2013 Teen Choice Awards

Nina Dobrev would have surely turned heads on the red carpet at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California on Sunday evening.

The ‘Vampire Diaries’ actress, who collected the Choice TV Actress: Fantasy/Sci-Fi surfboard, shunned a pretty summery dress for a more directional look from the J. Mendel Pre-Fall 2013 collection which is why she’s always top of best dressed lists.

The splatter-paint-printed top with a v-neckline and matching slim-fit pants was given an additional pop of colour via her orange Devi Kroell clutch, with green Dolce & Gabbana sandals and Martin Katz diamond button earrings completing the look.

I love that, like Selena Gomez, Nina gave us something a bit unexpected and not the teen-queen look many were expecting.
