There will never be enough recognition for Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev (Elena). The 24-year-old is talented, beautiful, and always seems to have a genuine smile on her face and at least one “Best Of 2013” list is taking notice. What honor is Nina taking home this New Year season?

Nina has been named “Top Stylish Star of 2013” by Just Jared Jr.! The online outlet had this to say about Nina’s fashion choices this past year: “Nina continues to impress us on the carpet and off, with eye-catching colors and funky details. Top moment: Her paint-splattered J. Mendel pant suit at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards.” Yay, Nina! Our Vampire Diaries starlet beat out stylish stars like Selena Gomez, Jennifer Lawrence, and Naya Rivera to take home top honors.

Here at Wetpaint, we’re not immune to Nina’s impeccable fashion. We’ve compiled our own list of Nina’s top red carpet fashions of the year. Though we’re also fans of the splatter-print jumpsuit, we also adored Nina in the hot pink Elie Saab gown she wore to the 19th Annual SAG Awards at the beginning of the year -- not to mention the classic black-and-white Naeem Khan she sported for the 21st Annual Elton John Oscar Viewing Party. Though, really, we think Nina could pull off a potato sack.

Our favorite part about Nina’s fashion? She’s not afraid to overdress! Earlier this month, she stopped at a fast food joint while still wearing the Elie Saab gown from an event earlier that night. Not everyone can rock a ball gown while eating a hamburger, but Nina certainly pulled it off!

The Vampire Diaries returns Thursday, January 23, 2014 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
