How to Wear Black Embellished Sandals Like Nina Dobrev

Nina Dobrev looked adorable at The Vampire Diaries presentation during The Paley Center for Media’s PaleyFest 2014. We usually see the fan-favorite TV star in short skirts and sassy outfits, but she opted for a whole new look at the event honoring her hit show.

She wore a pretty midnight blue belted frock from the spring 2014 collection of Michael Kors. It features short sleeves, silver studs, a pleated skirt, and a flirty keyhole detail. The gorgeous actress styled it with a silver glitter acrylic box clutch from Edie Parker, jewelry from Lina Noel, and a pair of black embellished sandals from Aperlai. Her half-up, half-down hairstyle was capped off with a tiny bow, which made her look younger.

Had she left the ribbon at home, this look would have been perfect. The dress in itself was lovely, but the bow was far too cutesy and did not mesh well with the other elements of her ensemble. Having said that, the stunning Bulgarian-Canadian actress still looked beautiful, and we totally approve of her choice of footwear.
