We’ve always been obsessed with Nina Dobrev and her Vampire Diaries on-screen alter ego Elena Gilbert, but after seeing this behind-the-scenes photo from Season 5 of the CW hit show, we’re absolutely head-over-heels in love with her.

In the photo, released on TVD’s Twitter account on September 3, Nina is sporting a little black dress and gently caressing a very chic antler chandelier. She looks totally gorg in this promo shot for the upcoming season, but we definitely know that this is about as fancy as we’ll see Elena this season.

With Elena and her bestie Caroline (Candice Accola) headed to Whitmore College, we know Elena will stick to her basic wardrobe: pants and blouses — she’s definitely not a girly girl, especially since she turned into a vamp.

Of course, college has typically been known as a time to reinvent oneself, so maybe Elena is going to turn into a glamazon this year — though our money is on her rocking jeans and a Whitmore sweatshirt while she’s not going to class.

What do you think about Elena’s classy look in the promo photo? Hit the comments to let us know how you think she’s going to handle college life.
