In addition to portraying Elena Gilbert, Nina played the role of Elena’s doppelgänger Katherine Petrova. Also known as Katherine Pierce, she is a witch of the Traveler sub-culture, the second-known Petrova Doppelgänger of Amara, and a former vampire.

While Katherine Pierce (born Katerina Petrova) was German in the popular book series of the same name written by L. J. Smith that you can buy on Amazon, she is Bulgarian in the TV series as Nina Dobrev speaks fluent Bulgarian.

Victoria Justice’s lookalike rarely disappoints on the red carpet, and the 2015 American Music Awards were no exception.

At the AMAs in November 2015, Nina wowed in a three-piece look from Zuhair Murad’s resort 2016 collection.

The then 26-year-old actress looked gorgeous in the white ensemble, which was comprised of a strapless floral-sequined crop top, a matching jacket draped over her shoulders and a floor-length skirt with a thigh-high slit.

To further the elegance of the outfit, Nina accessorized with a John Hardy ring and a pair of sparkling drop earrings.

She wore her brunette tresses in voluminous side-parted waves and sported gorgeous makeup with bronzed smoky eyeshadow and mauve lipstick.

Personally, we would have paired simple white sandals with her look, but Nina chose the slightly-distracting black-and-white Rene Caovilla caged pumps.

They feature a caged upper with crystal-embellished straps, pointed toes, adjustable ankle straps, and four-inch heels.
