Just because The Vampire DiariesNina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert) wasn’t at The People’s Choice Awards last night (and the show didn’t win any awards) doesn’t mean that she didn’t get to celebrate her birthday with her main man, Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore). 

Ian attended the show as a presenter (and nearly got licked), but often only the winners — and not the rest of the nominees — attend the ceremony.

Although we missed seeing Nina at the show, it turns out that she was at the Dior dinner, where she met up (and took pictures) with Nikki Reed and Anna Kendrick! Ian, who must’ve left the show just after presenting, was also at the dinner, where the couple took a photo with Dancing With the Stars pro Derek Hough… champagne and all.

The dinner quickly turned into a birthday celebration when a cake was brought out for Nina! How sweet!
