Newsflash! Nikki Reed is dating Ian Somerhalder. Nikki, who rose to fame for her role as Rosalie Hale in the Twilight movie franchise, was spotted canoodling with Ian while at the Farmer’s Market over the weekend. The two were obviously very into each other because they couldn’t keep their hands to themselves! Both were decked in workout wear and appeared to have just finished another running session and then went to grab some refreshments. The day before, Nikki and Ian were also spotted doing the same cardio workout in Los Angeles.

Prior to this very public display of affection, Nikki was caught looking extremely happy as she hung out with a male friend last Thursday. We’re guessing she was probably gushing about Ian.
The big smile on her face aside, we couldn’t help but love her outfit for the friendly outing. Nikki went glam-casual by wearing a simple black tee with blue denims and then topping the combo with a leather jacket, a gold chain-strap purse, and a pair of comfy flat thong sandals.

The flats were anything but casual, of course. They were made of smooth leather and were fashioned with gold buckles, gold insoles, and gold half-inch-tall heels. Yes, they were quite fancy — just like her purse. In fact, both accessories did a great job of dressing up her outfit.
