Look of the day


Simone Mitchell



Nina Dobrev, SAG Awards, 27 January, 2013.

Pink dresses can be a little daunting. Am I right, ladies?

Go too pale and puffy and you might look like you're off to your deb ball.

Go too bright and puffy and you'll look like an unhinged bridesmaid at a gypsy wedding.


Yesterday Nina Dobrev showed us all that there's no need to shy away from a hot pink dress. She killed it on the SAG Awards red carpet with this short-sleeved crepe gown from Elie Saab's Spring 2013 collection.

"But what is a Nina Dobrev?" I hear you say. Well Nina Dobrev is a teeny tiny actress who stars in The Vampire Diaries. Teenagers love her.

The relatively simple dress featured some subtle lace cut-out detailing down the side. She completed the look with drop earings, and an embellished clutch in a contrasting pink. Dobrev opted for simple hair and makeup, so as not to clash with the bold dress.

Well done Nina! You look very nice indeed.

Adorable. Stay in school.
