It’s enough that she’s got Damon Salvatore on screen and Ian Somerhalder off screen. Could Elena/Nina and I just switch places already? Before this season I have to say Elena’s been almost sickeningly perfect. Vampire Diaries is back this week and as much as I’ve been counting down the days to until the show comes off hiatus, I know the next few episodes will be the last I see of Mystic Falls for a few months. Nevertheless the doppelganger beauty has a gothic air about her that keeps her looking stunning in every episode. I love her hair best when she’s dressed up in those early twentieth century dresses and her hair’s been tousled and curled to perfection. Mimicking those curls is as simple as slipping the T3 Voluminous Hot Rollers Set ($99.00) in for about ten minutes. For the most part, Elena’s style is marked by two signature pieces – that verveine locket necklace ($21.00) and her KRMA crinkle leather jacket ($499.00, FYI KRMA’a actually Nina Dobrev’s favorite line of leather jackets). I sometimes forget the reason behind the name for the show, but these Smythson panama notebooks (55.00€ each) with “Love & Life” and “Live, Love, Laugh” stamped in gold on them would make a pair of lovely diaries. Perhaps I’ll pen a piece of VD fan fiction where I somehow sub myself in as the object of Damon’s affection.
Her voice is one of those soulful sounds that would sound even better on the scratches of vinyl. I could dance around to her music all day. She’s got this great frame for flared dresses, and the poise to pull off just about anything she throws on. Her cheeks are always the perfect shade of coral blush, accentuating her stunning bone structure. That photo of her above sort of radiates, so much so that I’d love to recreate it, and the acorn pendant strung around her neck has this sort of natural elegance that is probably how I’d describe Corinne herself. As for the secret to that hair, it’s a combination of genes and Aveda Damage Remedy Conditioner.
