For the occasion, the 26-year-old "Vampire Diaries" star donned a dramatic feathered ball skirt and metallic top, both by Lela Rose.
The Canadian actress, who just wrapped her final season on the popular CW show, paired the ensemble with silver chandelier earrings and a silver and red clutch. Her long, brunette locks were pulled into a half-up, half-down 'do, and smoky eye makeup and soft pink lips finished the elegant look.
This may be our favourite Nina Dobrev look yet!
