Nina Dobrev Met Ball 2012 Gown

What started as just a sketch turned into Nina’s breathtaking gown at the 2012 Met Ball — isn’t is beautiful? Get all the details on the stunning dress right here!

Not only did Nina Dobrev have all eyes on her at the 2012 Met Ball in NYC on May 7, but she was the first stylish star to rock the new Donna Karan Atelier collection — and she looked absolutely beautiful on the red carpet!

But before it sparkled at the star-studded gala, the black and gold sequined dress was inspired by this sketch seen here, which was crafted with Nina’s figure and her personal sense of style in mind — and we think Nina did an amazing job making its debut!

Just like the designer’s drawing, the sexy backless gown beautifully draped Nina’s figure and also wowed the crowed with its long, dramatic train — such an elegant choice for the big night!

We think the whole ensemble came together perfectly and give Nina props for totally working the new collection! Do you agree?
