Actress Nina Dobrev, our new style crush, is serving up so many good looks this year

Nina Dobrev is our newest celebrity style crush. On Wednesday, the Dog Days star stepped out in NYC rocking an ’80s-style denim jumpsuit, equipped with puffy shoulders, by Ulla Johnson. Dobrev paired the daytime summer look with white slingback block heels, tortoise cat-eye sunglasses, and a chic red Chanel shoulder bag. This is just one of many fashionable winning looks Dobrev has worn in 2018.

Throughout the year, Dobrev has elevated her fashion game, wearing fresh designer dresses from top houses including Dior, Valentino, and Altuzarra. The actress has moved on from her early-aughts style — which consisted of high-slit maxi skirts and tight sheath dresses — to glamorous gowns that land her on best-dressed lists.

The actress’s style evolution can, in many ways, be attributed to celebrity stylist Kate Young, whom Dobrev began working with this year and who also happens to be the No. 1 most powerful Hollywood stylist in 2018, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Young’s clientele includes A-list celebrities Selena Gomez, Natalie Portman, Margot Robbie, and Michelle Williams, among many more.

And just as Dobrev’s style has bloomed, so has her career. As a teen, the actress played roles in ‘Degrassi: Minis and Degrassi: The Next Generation’. In 2009 Dobrev landed her first major breakout role in The Vampire Diaries, and she starred in the cult-favorite film ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’ in 2012. Now Dobrev is back promoting her newest film, ‘Dog Days’, which she stars in alongside Vanessa Hudgens and Eva Longoria.

Ahead, see Dobrev’s best fashion looks so far in 2018.
