Nina Dobrev attended the premiere of her new comedy flick, Let’s Be Cops, at the ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood.

Not related to lookalike Victoria Justice, the pretty-faced actress was dressed in a multicolored Zuhair Murad frock that made her shine bright on the red carpet.

The A-line mini dress from the brand’s Resort 2015 collection features gorgeous tribal and geometric bead embellishments arranged in exotic patterns all over.

We are just in love with this beaded frock. The unique design stands out effortlessly, but it did not overpower the petite actress.

The Vampire Diaries actress finished the ensemble with a pair of Salvatore Ferragamo fall 2014 pumps.

Beaded dresses can be pretty tricky to wear, especially if they feature bold patterns like Nina’s couture piece. Multicolored beading details can easily overwhelm, so you have to go easy on the accessories and the hair and makeup.

A simple pair of strappy shoes in a solid color will be ideal to wear with a boldly embellished dress. For a simpler look that still features beading, go for outfits that are not fully beaded and have a simpler color palette.
