Nina Dobrev in Elie Saab

Posted on March 11, 2013

Nina isn’t quite a PhD-level dress-wearer, but she’s on her way. We’d say she’s studying for her Master’s at the moment. Which means she should attempt the occasional difficult dress, even if she can’t quite rock it. How else will she learn?

 

Nina Dobrev attends the John Varvatos 10th Annual Stuart House Benefit in an Elie Saab dress paired with Pollini shoes and a Jimmy Choo bag.

We think this is quite pretty and has a little interest to it. She’s mostly pulling it off. But man, do we ever not like that bodice. First off, it’s designed in such a way as to instantly make the dress look like it’s too tight on the wearer and she’s about to bust (literally) out of it. We don’t think that vest detail adds anything but a feeling of sloppiness. The dress would bemuch prettier and simpler (in a good way) without it

Love the skirt, though. And that’s a nice shoe choice, even if they’re a little colorless and matchy.
