May 13, 2010 - 12th Annual Young Hollywood Awards
I fell in love with this look the first time I saw it. The adorable dress, with the cute, pouffy skirt, heart-shaped bodice, the black lattice-detailing and belt over the the white. Paired with pink-ish red lips and matching pumps, the ensemble was topped by the youthful updo with the cluster of curls.
MAY 20, 2010 - EXPRESS 30th Anniversary Party
There is not one single thing I don't adore about this whole ensemble. The beautiful spaghetti-strap black lace mesh over white top paired with with the white, vertically-black lined skirt is just perfection. The heels with the bit of decoration of the toe, her full waves and the red lips completes the look. It's a youthful look with a sophisticated dollop of sex appeal.
AUGUST 29, 2010 - 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards
When I first saw her on the Emmy carpet, I -- like just about everyone else on the planet -- was wowed! The sleek updo, the lacy, creamy-gold-colored intricate detailing of the dress, the perfect matching pumps, nearly nude lips and drop earrings all equaled a red carpet win.
OCTOBER 16, 2010 - Spike TV's 2010 Scream Awards
My simplest pick on the list, but this little black dress is simply perfect. There's enough depth in the cut of the dress to give it a kick. The fit -- like a second skin -- is divine, and the clutch and heels -- edgy enough to fit in at the Scream Swards -- are a great match.
APRIL 30, 2011 - White House Correspondents' Association Dinner
She looks like a Grecian goddess here. The paler than pale pink of this sweet confection of a dress is a perfect complement to her skin, and the pale, peachy-red of her lips. The glamorous, old Hollywood hairstyle paired with the gorgeous necklace -- drawing just the right amount of attention -- created an effortlessly beautiful look.
JULY 23, 2011 - Cowboys & Aliens World Premiere
I think this is one of her sexiest looks. A peek-a-boo style of dress that is put together so tastefully that it doesn't cross the line. The black mesh criss-crossed all-around her body with black ribbons of material hugs her form beautifully. Paired with the matching red lip and pumps, and full, loose waves creates a look oozing with sex appeal.
AUGUST 07, 2011 - 2011 Teen Choice Awards
Adorable. Simply, utterly adorable. I love how she fits her appearance and style to the event effortlessly. Here, she's youthful, perky and as fresh as a summer breeze. The pulled-back ponytail, the gingham blue dress with matching white clutch and navy pumps is a delight.
SEPTEMBER 18, 2011 - 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards
After all of the praise she got at the Emmys the year before, she was expected to wow on the red carpet ... and wow she did in a striking red of her own. Full, loose waves, this form-fitting, strapless, fire-red, mermaid-style dress was breath-taking. The accessories of silver clutch and diamond choker necklace kept all of the attention where it belonged -- on that dress!
JANUARY 10, 2011 - Forevermark And InStyle Golden Globes Party
I just love the Spring-style casual beauty of this look. The pretty pink clutch bringing out the pink of the floral design, and that flowing skirt are just lovely. The strappy nude heels work, and the pink lips and loose curls complete the breezy look.
FEBRUARY 11, 2011 - Monique Lhuillier - Fall 2012 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week
The jewel-tone is astoundingly gorgeous on her -- she should definitely wear blue more often! The gauzy, wrap-around style fitting her beautifully paired with the simple, pulled-back ponytail is beautiful. The gold heels with a touch of blue-ish silver are the perfect complement.
There you have it. As of now, my 10 favorite Nina Dobrev event looks. (Which I'm sure we'll change before too long!)
