The star stunned in a fabulous frock, making her one of the best dressed stars on the red carpet! Did you love her look as much as I did?
Nina Dobrev made her red carpet debut in 2013 at the Critics’ Choice Awards at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica on Jan. 10, where the star looked stunning in a Monique Lhuillier dress from the Spring 2013 collection. The 24-year-old, who was on hand to present, opted for a gorgeous cocktail dress in a vibrant turquoise.
The keyhole detailing at the neckline broke up the sweet silhouette, while a round tulip skirt kept the ensemble flirty and fun. The coloring of the dress looked beautiful against Nina’s skin tone and she looked so cool and confident coming down the red carpet! The Vampire Diaries star pulled her hair back in a sleek ponytail, keeping the focus on her fabulous frock, while nude makeup completed her red carpet look.
The embellished dress featured sparkling gems, making the intricate dress really stand out — and Nina looked amazing! She paired the ensemble with very simple, (yet chic!), black Brian Atwood ‘Evie’ sandals, which featured a thin ankle strap. The star didn’t really accessorize the look, and I thought that was a winning choice. From the embellishments to the color, the dress has so much detailing — and over-accessorizing the look would have taken away from that.
Talk about starting off the year on the right foot! If this is a preview of what we can expect to see from the star in the upcoming year I really can’t wait! Personally, I think this is one of Nina’s best looks ever. The star is really growing up, and I love watching her red carpet style evolve. What do you think? Did you like the vibrant dress as much as I did?
