Nina Dorbrev is more than just a pretty face!
She's also a coveted Vampire Diaries actress, and a fashionista to boot!
In fact, thanks to her recent split with co-star Ian Somerhalder, she probably has more time than ever to spend on her #1 hobby: fashion!
The 25-year-old told Extra:
"Everyone has hobbies, and mine is definitely fashion. You get to play dress-up. It's the perfect thing for a girl."
While we can certainly agree, we MUST add that it’s the perfect thing for boys, too!
But even a seasoned red carpet-er can have mishaps, like Nina did at Cannes last year:
"At Cannes last year I had an Elie Saab gown that ripped as I walked out the door so we had to go into the showroom and grab another one and alter it really, really quickly!"
Although Nina loves to dabble into fashion as a hobby, when it comes to important events she still gets help from her celebrity stylist, Iliaria Urbinati. But Iliaria doesn’t have full control — the two work together to find the most faboosh looks!
"It's a very collaborative process. It's really cool, I mean she's obviously very opinionated."
We're just happy this vampire lady loves dressing up for the red carpet, unlike a certain other vampire lady we know. Ha!
