Nina Dobrev proves you don't need a nomination to walk away a winner on Emmy night!

At the 2011 annual awards show, the stunning Vampire Diaries star stole the spotlight, thanks to a showstopping Donna Karan gown in a ravishing red hue.

The strapless design hugged the 24-year-old in all the right places, while her sideswept retro curls lent her an Old Hollywood glamour girl vibe that we're still in awe of.

But the brunette beauty is also a master when it comes to flaunting an edgy look on the red carpet. From punk-inspired safety pins to paint-splattered numbers, even Dobrev's fashion risks seem to pay off beautifully.

So in anticipation of what we're sure to be another radiant look from the Vampire Diaries star come Emmy night, we're sinking our teeth into some of her most memorable red carpet moments.
