Actress Nina Dobrev is best known for playing Elena Gilbert on the hit CW show “The Vampire Diaries,” but she garnered some much-deserved sartorial nods at the recent Toronto International Film Festival. Dobrev made appearances alongside costar Emma Watson to promote their new film, “The Perks of Being a Wallflower.”
Dobrev’s outfits ranged from formal gowns to flirty shorts ensembles. At the film’s premiere, Dobrev looked like a princess in a Monique Lhuillier strapless, sequin embellished gown. She chose a sexier silhouette for a party at Soho House, wearing a red Elie Saab dress with a plunging neckline and a peplum waist. She wore another Saab cocktail dress with sequins and lace for a CAA TIFF bash.
The brunet actress mixed things up when she stopped by the Lia Sophia IT Lounge Portrait Studio in a matching paint-splattered blouse and shorts ensemble from the Monique Lhuillier resort 2013 collection. She accessorized with a Lia Sophia Cirque ring and royal purple evening bag and finished the look with a pair of Manolo Blahnik for Monique Lhuillier orange heels with ankle straps.
