It may be the 21st Century, but Candice Accola has clearly embraced 1973.

On Wednesday, April 11, the Vampire Diaries actress stepped out for the ELLE Women in Music Event at the Avalon Nightclub in Hollywood. Opting for a print-and-lace maxi dress with chunky platform heels, Candice’s look had a distinctly hippie feel that we’re not used to seeing on the star.

A milkmaid-braid updo added an extra romantic touch, while eye-catching green earrings finished off the vintage, flower-child vibe.

On the one hand, we’re loving Candice’s unique approach to the red carpet event, yet we feel she may have veered a tad too far into Woodstock territory.

Are you loving Candice’s look or do you think she should have toned it down a notch?
