Nina Dobrev in Ralph Lauren at a Globes party: gorgeous and contemporary?


A post shared by Nina Dobrev (@nina) on

These are some pictures from the Post-Golden Globes Party, hosted by Warner Brothers and In Style. The people who we’re covering are somewhat random in that these are just a few who stuck out for me, Kaiser and Corey are covering more. First off is Nina Dobrev in an incredible Ralph Lauren gown featuring a swoop metallic panel and a side cut out. I wish Nina was at the Globes proper since Kendall freaking Jenner was there and Nina is an actress, but I’m glad we got to see her dressed up last night. She almost always gets it right. This dress is impressive and highlights how fit she is. Also Nina’s birthday is today! She’s 29.


Nina’s bff, Julianne Hough, was in a dippy Jenny Packham with mesh sleeves and a frumpy sequin faux bow on the front. These two made a cute video they posted to Instagram in which it looked like they switched gowns in an elevator. There are similar videos from other celebrities in that elevator so I believe these short videos were a service offered by InStyle, like a video photobooth.



Sarah Hyland was in a very simple sequin Rasario gown. I like the spaghetti straps on this, it’s retro and understated if a bit typical of this style. She’s wearing pink eyeshadow and yet somehow it works.



Nikki Reed has a six-month-old baby at home and she looked tired. She’s also married to a man who seems controlling to say the least. So I imagine things are not entirely rosy for her behind the scenes. Nikki seems to appreciate Ian though, she snapchatted about the fact that he was carrying her breast pump around for her in a to-go box. She was in Azzi and Osta, in a one sleeve gown with golden embellishments. I’m not fond of the silhouette and whatever is happening along the top and sleeve, it’s very 70s. Her hair and makeup are really pretty though.

    I LOVE Nina. I thought her bob cut aged her significantly but I’m beginning to think the make-up/eyebrows are the culprit. She used to have a more pronounced arch/thinner brows, and I think that + a fresher, more “no makeup” makeup look would really really make her shine.

    • I like Nina too but something does just seems off with her…mostly she looks sad to me. Maybe that’s the makeup? I like natural but her makeup makes her appear bland, flat …there’s not a no make healthy glow there.
      I think the hair cut didn’t necessarily age her but like the makeup there’s not a fresh movement to her hair that would make it kind of a kicky, fun change.
      Figure is gorgeous and dress highlights it without revealing too much so it’s a win to me. Just wish her general demeanor seemed less melancholy.
      Usually love Sarah’s styling but she’s just ok here. Usually her hair color is more vibrant, makeup a little more pronounced, and dress a bit more youthful. That said she’s still a beautiful young lady and someone I wouldn’t mind my daughter emulating.

        I know nothing of her, but I thought she looked sad, too.

        Also, she and Hough should have stayed with the switch. Dobrev looks great in both, but the whole look of Hough’s (original) dress was too severe with the makeup and bad shade of blonde ( also side-eyeing Busy for bad hair color choice).

    Nina looks the best by far. And chopping her hair was such a good move.
    And yes the elevator videos are from instyle. They did them last year too. The kids from stranger things did a cute one

    I actually think Julianne’s gown looks better on Nina. I did not like the gown nina originally wore on her or on Julianne. I might’ve liked it better without the metallic bit.

    • Ankhel says:

      I would never swap or borrow dresses from Nina if I was Julianne. Nina looks better in everything, I imagine. Still, that modern outfit isn’t good. Too much going on with bare shoulders, belly AND thigh. It sags too.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      Oh, jeez, I just said same above, sorry!

    Nina‘s dress looked way better in motion than in still photos.
    Julianne looks different…bad makeup?
    Sarah’s look is great.

  5. Talie says:

    Is she still with Glen Powell?

    I can say goals for the first time ever now that I saw ND’s dress. I absolutely love it. Simple, clean designs with an extra little something always do it for me.

  7. Cali says:

    I don’t think Nikki looks tired at all! She always looks super fresh and glowy.

  8. Newyorking says:

    I don’t mind Nina’s dress, but she has obviously gotten some work done and it just doesn’t work, she has lost her Fresh look. I am so disappointed because I really liked her!

  9. amilu says:

    I actually really like Julianne’s dress, but I agree that Nina wore it better.

    Nina is beautiful, but her eye makeup is not good. It looks better (and she looks younger) in the pap shot where it looks like it’s worn off a bit after partying.

  10. Pandy says:

    Wow, Nina’s dress is AMAZING. Especially in motion.

  11. Eve V says:

    I love Nina’s dress, but agree with other posters that she does seem sad in every picture I’ve seen of her. She looked great in the Instagram video though. Also agree with others that both dresses looked better on Nina. I did not like Julianne’s dress, at all when I first saw it on her but thought it was kind of cute on Nina.
    I think Sarah elevates the simple style of the dress and looks chic and beautiful.
