Vampires don't sparkle in Mystic Falls, but that didn't stop Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev from shimmering at the 2014 People's Choice Awards

The TVD star — and 2014 People's Choice nominee — wore a skin tight, sparkly Jenny Packham dress to the big event, held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE on Wednesday (January 8) in Los Angeles. Nina paired her embellished look with an edgy, braided mohawk. We love that Nina is so fearless when it comes to her style! The 24-year-old accessorized with a metallic clutch and silver, strappy heels. Looking good, Nina! 

Nina is nominated for a 2014 People’s Choice Award for “Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy Actress.” While the TVD actress already has one win — as a 2012 write-in for “Favorite Dramatic TV Actress” — under her belt, we think she’s due for another. Perhaps she's rack up another win with co-star Ian Somerhalder. The former couple is nominated for Favorite On-Screen Chemistry. Um, awkward alert! 

What do you think of Nina's sparkly ensemble? Sound off in the comments! 

Catch the next episode of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday, January 23, 2014 at 8 p.m. ET on the CW, followed by an all-new episode of Reign.
