Last night, Nina Dobrev, the leading starlet on The CW’s hit show The Vampire Diaries, gathered with her closest friends and cast mates at the legendary Studio 54 in Las Vegas to celebrate her 21st birthday. Nina initiated her first trip to Sin City with a walk on the red carpet in a navy blue and black bandage dress from French Connection, showcasing her phenomenal long legs.
On the carpet, Nina shared what an amazing year it has been with the outpouring excitement for The Vampire Diaries debut season. “It’s been a crazy ride this past year. I remember a year ago on the 9th of January, my birthday, and I was 20 in Venice Beach surfing, and this year I’m on this great show; I have all these great friends; and I’m in Vegas! It’s insane to think of what a journey it’s been in one year. I’m really lucky!”
With the show’s highly anticipated return from hiatus this week, the actress shared some details on what’s to come for her character, Elena. “The end of this next episode is going to be extremely shocking, and it’s going to take everyone by surprise,” she said.
