We caught up with a heady starlet bunch at the Beverly Hilton Hotel recently for the 14th annual Hollywood Awards Gala. Out of the big names at the award rites, including Halle Berry, Jodie Foster and Milla Jovovich, we were star-struck by Leighton Meester. And we’re still totally bewitched by Nina Dobrev and Katerina Graham, who are shown posing for promotional shots celebrating Vampire Diaries. We do our transformation thing with the three stars, thanks to flats for royalty and boots for vamps.
Leighton Meester demonstrates how you get blue to smoke at the Hollywood Awards events. We mean, leave your snark in the glove compartment. Look at her, head to toe perfection, from eye makeup to sheer dress to shoes. For after hours, we would have awarded her Tory Burch Reva flats—particularly Reva pewter glitter ballet flats—to keep her comfy but still dressed for the Royal Ball.
Nina Dobrev shows up for promo shots for Vampire Diaries, looking mega-romantic in a leaf-print sheath. Her safe choice for shoes were these heels but we say show a little respect for 2010. Vamp it forward. Wear these Jeffrey Campbell Pixie black leather boots. Nina can pull off the drama of pairing boots with cocktail dress. That’s a look that tells big producers she has a little something extra going on.
Katerina Graham looks ravishing in a black and brown dress with a faux see-through thing going on. We love her agile talent to wear any dress or gown with the right hair, pose, makeup, everything. Katerina’s totally together talents find a match in the Tory Burch Eddie ballet flats that are 2010 top sellers in wear-anywhere versatility. We complete her ensemble with these shoes in rich bronze metallic leather.
