Nina Dobrev's Crazy Sparkly Dress at Critics' Choice Awards Would Make Christian Grey Cringe


Nina DobrevWhoa! Did you get a load of Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev's super-sparkly green dress at the Critics' Choice Awards last night? Actually, if you did tune in for the show, I'm not sure how you could've missed this little number.

Yeah, yeah, overall she looks gorgeous, but that's just because she's Nina Dobrev. She could literally wear a burlap sack and still manage to turn heads.

But seriously, if that dress had been worn by anyone other than Nina, it would've been the laughing stock of the night for sure. Heck, even the Little Mermaid couldn't have pulled off this frock -- that's how crazy the style is. (Love her shoes, though.)

If I had to accurately sum up this look, I think I'd describe it as a "prom dress gone horribly wrong." I mean, doesn't it resemble something you'd expect to see awkwardly moving about the dance floor of a high school gym back in 1985? (Or perhaps hovering over the punch bowl?)

And it's hard not to wonder what Nina's main squeeze, Ian Somerhalder, thought of her little get-up. Even though the Fifty Shades of Grey movie hasn't been cast yet, a lot of people already associate Ian with Christian Grey -- and I'm just not sure this dress quite fits with what we'd expect someone like him to find appealing. (Can you picture Christian's face if Ana showed up in something like this?)

I think the color of the dress is what really throws off the entire look. If it were black, it could totally work. Actually, a black version would be really, really sexy, and it would get rid of the teen, prom queen vibe too.

(When in doubt, always stick to black, ladies.)

What do you think of Nina's dress?

I think you're being a little too hard on this dress. Other than the giant circle cut out of the chest, I actually dig it. I like the color, the sparkle, the length.. its fun!

I don't know. It's not the best dress she's ever worn.  Red always looks good on her. However, I don't think it's that bad either.   Maybe it's because it's Nina and she always looks beautiful.

Hmm I agree. She's beautiful but the dress does her no favors. It would be better in black or if the skirt didn't stiffly jut out from the bodice, I think.

Are you just jealous, bored or smoking crack? She looks FAB! She is young and vibrant and wears this color and style fabulously! Her dark skin tone and hair make it work as well as her beauty. It is playful and very contemporary. What were YOU wearing?
