Nina Dobrev Debuts Blond Ombre Hair at the 2014 CW Upfronts! (PHOTOS)

The stars of the CW were out in full force on Thursday, May 15, as the network held its annual Upfront Presentation at the London Hotel in NYC. Joined by the stars of The Originals (including a newly engaged Joseph Morgan!), Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley represented The Vampire Diaries as the CW announced its 2014 Fall Schedule.

Proving once again one she’s one of the hottest stars on TV, Nina debuted a striking a new hairstyle. Instead of sporting her signature brown locks, the 25-year-old actress showed off long, textured waves with dramatic ombre highlights. She paired the stunning look with a plunging Alberta Ferretti blazer and a matching black skirt, then finished it all off with sexy metallic heels by Christian Louboutin.

Inside the event, Paul spoke to Just Jared about his character’s shocking death in last week’s episode. “I didn’t really know until I was at the table read,” he said with a laugh. “I thought it was fantastic. I love twists and turns. It really got me. Maybe he’ll come back, I don’t know. It was wonderful.”
