Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder, who have been married for nearly nine years now, appeared as though they were still in their honeymoon phase while posing on the red carpet at the 33rd Environmental Media Associations’ Awards Gala on Saturday.

Reed supported her husband, featured in the documentary Common Ground with philanthropists Laura Dern, Rosario Dawson, Jason Momoa, Donald Glover, and Woody Harrelson.

Documentary Film ‘Common Ground’: A Deep Dive into Food System Issues

As per the film’s website, “By fusing journalistic expose’ with deeply personal stories from those on the front lines of the food movement, Common Ground unveils a dark web of money, power, and politics behind our broken food system. The film reveals how unjust practices forged our current farm system in which farmers of all colors are literally dying to feed us. The film profiles a hopeful and uplifting movement of white, black, and indigenous farmers who are using alternative “regenerative” models of agriculture that could balance the climate, save our health, and stabilize America’s economy – before it’s too late.”

In contrast, the bottom portion of the ensemble featured a modest floor-length column skirt highlighting Reed’s 5’4” height. Her shoes weren’t visible, but she most likely wore a pair of stilettos to boost her frame.

Accessorizing the Look: Reed’s Elegant Style

Nikki maintained an elegant look with her accessories, which included a pair of charming gold leaf ear climbers covered in sparkling diamonds and two necklaces—a diamond necklace and a pendant necklace—wrapped around her neck.

She also adorned her fingers with a few diamond and gold rings, adding extra glitz to the look.

The Thirteen actress stored her necessities in a unique wooden clutch bag, carved with a floral cutout pattern and finished with a gold chain strap.

Her brunette hair was pulled back into a stylish bun with a center part, and mascara was used to draw attention to her hazel eyes. She completed the stunning look with mauve lipstick and peachy blush applied to her cheeks and the bridge of her nose to create a sunburn flush.
