This whippet of a girl is Nina Dobrev, a.k.a. Elena on Vampire Diaries, a.k.a. “Elena Dobrev” for the entire first draft of this post, because I cannot seem to remember her actual first name before I have caffeine.

Nina is clearly naturally thin, but the snug bra top steers her into Frail Town, which is not a great neighborhood and frankly doesn’t have ANY decent restaurants. It’s also all a tiny bit too-everything: Too short, too snug, too bra-like, too random, too Vampires on Ice. Because, yes, that’s illusion netting up there. Want to see?
There are stylish corsets that are made to be seen, and then there are the ones that look like you bought them on clearance at Macy’s specifically to be invisible but deadly, kind of like the Bridget Jones flab-sucking granny panties that Renee Zellweger wore in the movie, only to realize with horror that Hugh Grant was going to see them. That this falls under the latter category, even if Hugh Grant shows up suddenly and does something rakishly charming, is not a compliment.
However, I do think it’s sweet that she’s taking pictures of a fan (I assume, since he’s dating someone who is not that girl) with her increasingly Edward Cullen-esque co-star, Paul Wesley, a.k.a. Paul Wasilewski, a.k.a. why bother changing your name six years into your TV career (Fallen, Everwood, Wolf Lake — which I swear I only know because I recapped it for TWoP — Guiding Light)? I know he said it’s hard to pronounce, and that changing it reaped wonders for his career, but dude, I think you’re selling yourself short if you think you nabbed Vampire Diaries just because your name is easy to type into a call-sheet. Just saying.
