Nina Dobrev is one stylish lady, but she claims she hasn’t always been so fashionable. Check out The Vampire Diaries star rocking denim and talking her fashion evolution in this behind-the-scenes video from Nina’s Nylon magazine cover shoot!

“We are in New York City at the moment, doing the August issue of Nylon, so it’s all kinds of different denim,” Nina explains in the two-minute video. “It sort of feels like 80s, 90s grunge rock star. I mean I’m feeling very Calvin Klein today.”

Nina looks amazing for the shoot, rocking the ombre locks she dyed for the filming of horror comedy The Final Girls over the summer. When asked about her fashion sense in high school, Nina admitted she hasn’t always had the best style: “I don’t think I necessarily had the best sense of style in high school. The sense to very much put things together until I started working in the industry and started learning and kind of had mentors and took chances and got a great stylist and, now, I love fashion.” We love Nina’s style — and we love even more that she’s not afraid to eat a hamburger in even the classiest of dresses.


The actress also talked music in the Nylon vid. What are her favorite songs right now? Well, she had to consult her phone because she has “the worst memory on the planet,” but eventually reported: “Talk Dirty to Me” is the song that I’m obsessed with right now. I can’t tell you how many videos I have on my phone of all of us in my car dancing and singing. My girl Kat Graham has got some awesome, awesome jams out there right now. She’s killing it, and I love listening to her music.” Aww!
