Nina Dobrev - Met Ball 2012

Nina Dobrev leads a long train on the red carpet at the 2012 Met Ball held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

The 23-year-old Vampire Diaries actress wore a Donna Karan Atelier gown, Jimmy Choo shoes, H. Stern jewelry, and carried a Judith Lieber clutch.

“On my way to the MET BALL…can’t wait for everyone to see the dress! It’s heavy… Haha,” Nina tweeted on her way to the annual gala.

  • Eloise

    Ahh to be a celeb. So since they always name the designer means they get to wear the clothes for free. So lucky. Gorgeous dress.

  • aeson7

    everything looks beautiful, but boring and safe.

  • Truth

    There are no words to describe,How beautifull she looks tonight,I loved the hair,make up ,her skin and of course the DRESS, she looks STUNNING.

  • Lauren

    If you do not see how clearly Nina is killing it on the red carpet tonight then I feel sorry for you. She is undoubtedly one of the best dressed of the evening. Her hair and makeup flawless as well. Whoever disagrees does not know fashion. I spend my life studying fashion and if I did not I wouldn’t make such ridiculous comments on a subject I know nothing about. Just a suggestion. Then again…to each his own.

  • N

    where is Ian???

  • jade

    Love the silhouette of the dress, hate the gold bursts.
    It’s called style, either you’re born with it or you’re not. It really doesn’t matter how long someone spend “studying” it.

  • ema

    why does EVERYONE look so damn orange?

  • siennagold

    Love love love it! I like Nina’s style.

  • NINA BIT**?!?!?!


  • Franzi

    I want to be honest right know, I think she is getting boring ;( Her dresses always look the same, she always does the same pose and in some pics (on other sites) she looks so bitchy….NINA don’t turn into a Diva please!

    The dress….it’s way over the top! Seriously! ;(

  • lena

    ahaha I was sure she would be at the met ball! she looks cute but I don’t lie the golden look on her. silver does it better for her

  • Verite

    Umm…I think people need to remember that as Donna Karan’s guest at the party she doesn’t actually get to choose the dress and her stylist would have put together the whole look ie hair, shoes, bag etc. She is basically there as a “model” for Donna Karan’s dress. Based on what I see in more close-up high-res pictures, most photos don’t do this dress justice. I think that when she walks it would look almost fluid based on the weight and how the gold is applied. To me, she looks beautiful and I could never in my entire life ever imagine getting the chance to wear something that opulent and elegant.

  • Sarah

    The train is long cause otherwise it would look like a more simple dress. This is HIGH FASHION and she rocked it like always <3

  • Sarah


    If a woman has confidence she is a diva?? She is one of the most humble, sweet and talented girls out there. Just cause she poses with her head held high on red carpets MEANS SHE’S CONFIDENT. More women should be like that. Some girls out there are ridiculous!

  • Youn

    Gorgeous, both her and the dress, seen her on Conan the other night and understand what she meant by its heavy lol
    Her style is stunning, she is one of the most fashionable celebs out there today, congrats
