The 25-year-old Bulgarian-Canadian actress began her career as an actress in 2006 with a role in movie Away from Her.  She followed this with a starring role on teen drama Degrassi: The Next Generation, as single teenage mother Mia Jones, from 2006-2009.  In 2009, Nina landed her most popular role to date, as Elena Gilbert on the CW’s supernatural drama The Vampire Diaries. She plays the main character who finds herself involved in a world full of supernatural creatures and in a love triangle between two of the hottest vampires in her town, Stefan and Damon, who happen to be brothers. Between seasons of TVD, Nina has appeared in such films as ChloeThe Roommate, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. In her personal life, Nina had been previously linked to her Vampire Diaries co-star Ian Somerhalder. Up next for the actress is another season of TVD as well as more movie roles.

One thing that makes Nina stand out from her peers is her great fashion style! She’s always appearing crisp and stylish in her casual looks, but on the red carpet, she vamps it up in colorful and tight gowns. If you’re looking to Nina for inspiration, think crisp and neutral for your casual looks, but remember to play with colors and accessories for your nicer outfits.

This first look is of Nina on the set of EXTRA in January 2014. For a cute summer outfit, select a light blue sleeveless collared tank, black skater skirt, and yellow gladiator sandals. Add a lightweight black jacket for colder nights.
