One source claims the 18-year-old was actually bullied for being there -- apparently not everyone thought she earned the right to walk the shows!
The insider spilled:
While in town for New York Fashion Week, Vampire Diaries star and Nylon cover girl Nina Dobrev co-hosted a cocktail party on Saturday night to celebrate the mag's February issue.
Looking pretty in a sequin Jenny Packham dress, Nina was joined by fellow CW actress Shenae Grimes and Kellan Lutz at the Mondrian SoHo where the sipped on Russian Standard Vodka specialty cocktails as DJ Grave Robbers manned the turntables.
Check out more pics from the party in the gallery (below)!
