Happy Birthday Nina Dobrev!

The "Vampire Diaries" star turns 26 on January 9, and we're taking a moment to look back at her seriously kick ass style moments.

From her humble beginnings as Mia on "Degrassi: The Next Generation," to her full-blown celebrity status, the Canadian stunner has proven herself in the industry. She's also shown the world that, when it comes to style, she shouldn't be overlooked.
