From feisty fashion rags like Cosmopolitan to industry staples like Variety, Nina Dobrev has been all over some of the country’s most popular magazines.

Later this week, the Vampire Diaries actress will be seen on yet another cover when People Style Watch hits newsstands on Friday, September 13.

Inside the issue, Nina spills the deets on her ever-evolving style and shares some of her best tips for looking flawless from head to toe.

“Red is my color,” says the actress, who first became a style star after she attended the 2012 Emmys in a scarlet gown by Donna Karan. “It’s bold and fiery. Even my prom dress my red.”

Of her fashion influences, Nina credits her stylist for helping her step outside the box. “Ilaria Urbinati has encouraged me to take more fashion risks. [...] I’m seeing this cool evolution when I’ve become more confident. It’s sort of a self-discovery.”
