Ian Somerhalder & Nina Dobrev at the 2011 MMVAs  
I wasn't going to do this, but they were way too adorable to not. Here is the red carpet interview and presenting duties (including a fan-recorded one) that Ian and Nina did at the 2011 Much Music Awards, as well as pics! There were quite a few articles on them saying that the two have gone public with their (year-old) relationship because they reportedly were holding hands on the red carpet. However, the only photographic evidence of this is one blurry, fan-pic where it's not obvious at all. (Apparently, they walked the red carpet, and then they made them re-enter the limo and drive back up to be greeted by the presenter, and it was the first go-round with the hand-hold.) There were also reports of kissing and lovey-dovey behavior backstage (and considering they've been separated due to work obligations for almost two weeks, not really surprising.) Anyhoo, again, I couldn't resist, so here ya go ... all the Ian/Nina (Nian/Sobrev/Domerhalder -- seriously, these are the smushed names I've read today, LOL!) goodies!

- Red Carpet interview, Ian and Nina were the last ones televised. They also gave out the last award, so yeah, I had to wait through all three hours! (How adorable was Nina saying "Me" when Ian was asked who he was most excited to see and Ian answering promptly with "Nina Dobrev." Awww!)



- Televised presenting --


- Fan-recored version (shows what happened while the televised version went to the nominees, and it is adorable!) --



Now the red carpet and presenting images. There are bunch more out there of Nina and Ian separately (or where you can see the other in backrgound), but I just grabbed the obvious duo shots. These have been cropped to be the same size, again, you can see the full shots at the various Ian, Nina galleries.

- Red Carpet pics --





















Here are full shots of their look. (No comment on Ian's, he still looks hot, end of story. Nina's updo outside as opposed to the down-do inside seems likely because she literally rushed from the airport to get ready and to the ceremony in a matter of 1-2 hours, so she did more with her hair once inside. Which also likely explains the hideously non-matching shoes. :shakes head:) FYI: That is a manip in the press room, they took press room shots alone only. :(



Here they are backstage with some Degrassi cast members.



And here are the presenting pics. I did crop Selena Gomez and Justin Beiber mostly out of the pics, cuz just focusing on Nina and Ian (but, again, full shots at other sites.) First off, Nina and Ian were the only ones who presented together (awww!). Everyone else presented alone. Nina actually started that way, before she called Ian out.

Here is the HQ version of the first shot. (Double sigh.)

Awww!!! They are so cute!!! :D Thank you so much for posting these (the one you made your icon out of is precious!!! :) Heh, and I agree -- don't think they've gone public, because every "public/posing" shot, they just sort of stand to the side of each other (not put their arms around each other, like "couples" do :)

Thank you again!!! :D

It was her home town so of course she would want to come out with her boyfriend though they were obvious before hand lol but they wanted time together and didn't see each other for awhile since he's doing his thing and she working on Perks. :) but they were so cute!!! The touching and hand holding and yes they held hands while talking to the reporter and held hands walking off stage. :) can't believe they been together for a year though that a long to to keep it a secret.

I love looking at photos of them together b/c you can see they're both crazy about each other, even when they try to hid it (which makes them even more adorable).

Since Cosmo has yet to do their "body language of love" analysis on them, I'll give it a shot ;)

In most of the pictures, Ian's hips are almost always turned toward Nina (even when he's looking away), which according to the "experts" in body language shows a deep attraction for her. Nina's little face touch and Ian's leaning in also suggest a lot of trust and an emotional connection. And of course they just seem to light up the room when they're smiling at each other. The playful little punches to Ian's arm are also a very good sign of a deep connection, and they obviously seem to bring out the best in each other. In conclusion, even if these two weren't dating yet (which we all know they are!), they would be soon enough. You just can't fight it when the chemistry is that powerful :D <3
Carlydrkprncss17 on June 20th, 2011 08:22 pm (UTC)
Oh, and don't you just love how he can't NOT touch her, whether it's her hand, her arm, or her hip? It's like he can't get enough of her ;)

Wow, and a whole year...that just adds a whole new layer to all those Delena scenes <3

♥! I love this post and everything it chooses to be, and I'm going to tl;dr you to prove it! :P

Okay, first off I love all of these pictures. ALL OF THEM. They are so ridiculously pretty and so adorable together, I can't even. And the face touching! So cute!

(Apparently, they walked the red carpet, and then they made them re-enter the limo and drive back up to be greeted by the presenter, and it was the first go-round with the hand-hold.)

Okay, a) that is cute re: the hand-holding and b) they had them drive back around?! The entire entertainment world is, as ever, SO weird.

Hey, did you see Ian's dorky little twitvid of the crowd? (And speaking of twitter, I just read on Kim Klinger's that she was there and I don't know why, but I find it pretty damn sweet that they (well, I'm assuming Ian) invited her. IDK, everything in the world is adorable to me today, apparently!)

all the Ian/Nina (Nian/Sobrev/Domherhalder -- seriously, these are the smushed names I've read today,

... I don't care what anybody says, the term Domherhalder sounds really dirty. Which might work in its favour, actually.

They also gave out the last award, so yeah, I had to wait through all three hours!

Oh, god, that must've been a LONG three hours. That was incredibly mean of the show organisers. (I'm in the UK, so I just cheated and youtubed them and Gaga this morning and sat the rest out.)

Here are full shots of their look. (No comment on Ian's, he still looks hot, end of story.

Ha, yeah, the truly ridiculous thing is that he somehow gets away with it. There are not many people in this world where their hotness can heavily outweigh the deliberate fashion choice to only wear one suspender and half undone boots.

Nina's updo outside as opposed to the down-do inside seems likely because she literally rushed from the airport to get ready and to the ceremony in a matter of 1-2 hours, so she did more with her hair once inside.

God, wouldn't we all like to look that good after getting ready in a rush? She is so pretty. And I like her dress! I keep seeing people criticise her fashion sense, but I usually really like what she wears. (Although I agree, not sold on the shoes.)

First off, Nina and Ian were the only ones who presented together (awww!).

Aww, they were? How cute!

I thought it was sweet that Ian invited Kim to the show. She works hard for his foundation so it was awesome of him to include her in something that was fun and far removed from her real life as a wife, mother, and hard working Executive Director of a non-profit organization. God he is a sweetheart :)
distant_autumn: Damon - shadowed by imaginary_livesdistant_autumn on June 20th, 2011 09:16 pm (UTC)
Yeah, exactly :) It just seems a really nice thing to do and I approve :)

Still having a love fest over all the Nian awesomeness we got last night at the MMVA's. That picture where she is caressing his face and he is looking at her so adoringly...BLISS, and I absolutely adore the picture of them looking at each other after getting out of the limo. The smiles, the looks, the touches...SQUEE!!

I'm not gonna hate on Ian's strange suspender deal because I must admit, it's starting to grow on me (strangely enough) and I absolutely loved Nina's dress. The color was magnificent with her skin tone and she worked it! I am so happy that she put her hair down instead of keeping the up do because I prefer her hair curly/wavy and down rather than up and tight, although when it's up it shows her slender neck. The shoes, I would have gone with black, but I'm cutting her some slack because she was obviously in a rush.

They looked fabulous and were clearly ecstatic to be with each other again. So sad that they had to part ways this morning, but I'm sure they had a fantastic time getting reacquainted last night ;)

*flails*


But seriously, WHY IS DAMON'S HAIR NEVER AS SEXY AS IAN'S???!!!!!??????!!!!!!
Arabian: Ian Somerhalder04arabian on June 21st, 2011 02:41 am (UTC)
Same reason Damon never looks as good as Ian. The godawful make-up/hair department on The Vampire Diaries are clearly determined to attempt the impossible and uglify Ian Fucking Somerhalder. You know come the middle of July, we're gonna hear about Ian hitting New York and when we next see him, his hair will be dyed that icky fake black, and possibly with those damn wings on either side of his forehead. Gawd!

When a DYING Damon all covered in fake sweat looks better than Damon normally does because the make-up department has less make-up on the actor than usual, you KNOW they are doing something wrong. Grrr!

Sar: fun damon elenapaceisthetrick on June 21st, 2011 06:34 pm (UTC)

The presenting part was funny when Nina called Ian hot. Also when Nina told Selena "you know who this" because Selena and Bieber are BF/GF… LOL

Ian explaining that Elena crawled into bed with Damon cracks me up.

The non matching shoes… yeah… that's pretty silly that no one could give her a could pair. =D
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on June 21st, 2011 08:15 pm (UTC)
First of all.. wow, Nina is ridiculously thin!! :O

Secondly.. WOW AGAIN. Cause I had no idea that they were together?!! That actually explains a lot we see on tv!! \o/

And thirdly... awwww... The vids (esp. the fan-made one) are so damn cute! <3
Arabian: Ian & Nina13arabian on June 21st, 2011 08:20 pm (UTC)
Yeah, if you follow either closely (and aren't delusional, as some of Ian's fan so clearly are), it's pretty obvious that they've been dating since April or so of last year, they just have been keeping it mostly underwraps. I've posted a few other recent events they've attended in the last few months where they've been more obvious (much more so than in the past).

ETA: There's a new fan-taken one from behind and whereas in the other vids, it kinda looked like Ian might have had his hand a little on the lower portion of her back, nope, his hand was squarely on her ass, LOL!

I'm so glad you changed your mind and posted this, Jenn. You put together the best, most comprehensive Nian posts of anyone. Thank you for your time and effort in composing this.

(How adorable was Nina saying "Me" when Ian was asked who he was most excited to see and Ian answering promptly with "Nina Dobrev." Awww!)

Extremely!! It struck me that that was a much more telling gesture than we usually get from Nina.

I loved the fan-recorded video. It was great to see what they were doing while the nominees were up. So sweet how Ian had his hand on her hip even while talking with Selena.

There were alot of great pics from this event. Aside from the obvious favorite (thanks for the icon, BTW), I adore the one of them over the limo door.

Nina's dress was stunning (the colors and fabric and just made for her), and Ian is just so incredibly beautiful that I can overlook her shoes and his single suspender and half-open boots.

Overall, I felt like they were acting much more openly about their relationship. It's encouraging that the media seems to be consistently calling them a couple now and some of them have reported the MMVA's as their official coming out event.


Arabian: Ian & Nina06arabian on June 22nd, 2011 02:52 am (UTC)
There's a new fan-vid out. His hand was most definitely NOT on her hip. Nuh uh!


You can watch the whole video, but the pics above pretty much highlight what I'm talking about!


Actually, all of the articles have been saying this was their coming out, and I really don't think it was. There's no photographic evidence of a hand-hold, and other than a kiss backstage -- which they thought no one saw -- they didn't act that much differently than in the past. I think they aren't hiding hiding it now, but they aren't going to confirm or obviously flaunt it. Which is good and fine, gives them their privacy, but also gives us some goodies, LOL!

ETA: Here's a gif of that moment:

Ahhhh ...
I stand corrected. What a difference the view from behind makes!! It definitely was NOT her hip. Oh, Ian!

I agree that they're simply not hiding hiding anymore and this wasn't really a "making it official" event. I think they've handled the situation well. They get a least some privacy and we have fun speculating :o)

Love that gif <3
