The real purpose of The CW’s Upfront Presentation, held today in Los Angeles, is to give industry insiders the scoop on what’s coming to their televisions next fall. But for small screen stars like Kristin Kreuk, Rachel Bilson, and Nina Dobrev, the event was their chance to shine-literally- in gorgeous champagne dresses. Former Smallville actress Kreuk, who returns to the channel next season in the new adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, shimmered in a sequined tee and a floral print skirt. Despite the glittery top, she managed to keep the rest of the outfit’s low-key girly vibe with nude peep-toe pumps, a statement gold bangle, and classic wavy hair. The whole look is very “J.Crew catalogue goes Hollywood,” and we totally love it.
Maybe chalk it up to those Southern belles she surrounds herself with on Hart of Dixie, but Rachel Bilson upped the frill factor in a collared sleeveless frock with some major ruffles. It’s a departure from the face tats and bling that she sported in the Funny or Die vid (which we still can’t stop watching, by the way…), but hey- who says you can’t have the best of both worlds? Nina Dobrev knows a bit about this, considering she plays both the good girl and the evil one on Vampire Diaries . Today, though, it’s clear that the Bulgarian-Canadian actress took cues from sweet Elena in her modest long-sleeved dress and natural makeup, and instead of coupling her outfit with tan shoes like the others, the 23-year-old decided on a bolder pair of strappy burgundy sandals.
One color, three ways: between Kristin, Rachel and Nina, whose champagne dress do you like best?
