Nina Dobrev was at Variety’s 7th Annual Power of Youth event held over the weekend. The ‘Vampire Diaries’ cutie was completely stunning in the short red frock from Versus Versace that she wore for the occasion.

It was a simple A-line shift with a little bit of surprise in the form of pinned sleeves (yes, the sleeves came with pins attached to them).

She complimented the dress with a gold barrel clutch and showed off her stems in a pair of gold sky-high pointy T-strap heels that looked like they were going to slip off her feet as she made her way to the arrivals area.

Do you like Nina’s shoes? They’re sexy and very sleek, but we get the impression that walking in them would feel like walking in a pair of mules. What do you think?

Unlike the traditional t-strap silhouette where you get a heel cup or vertical bars on either side of the shoe to support the ankle strap, Nina’s pumps don’t come with any of those, so there isn’t enough support to keep your feet in the shoes if you walk a little too carelessly (or run).

But then again, given how high they are (the heels are at 120 mm), you will probably take each step with great care.

Nina’s T-Piga pumps are from Christian Louboutin‘s Fall 2012 collection. They are no longer available online, but you are welcome to check the nearest Christian Louboutin store or stockist in your city to see if they still have it.

Alternatively, you can try the Kate Spade “Jive” pumps in case you run out of luck finding the former. The Jive pumps do not come with t-straps, but they do feature the unique t-bar on the back. You can grab the Jive in black, red, or nude at Nordstrom.
