There's nothing that makes more of a splash on the red carpet than a quirky accessory. True to (sartorially gifted) form, Nina Dobrev wore Versace on the New York Film Festival red carpet and looked amazing. While the dress in question fit her like a glove, and was, of course, styled to absolute perfection, it was her handbag that really caught my eye. The high-necked gown featured an ultra chic thigh-high leg slit as well as an scarlet panel running down the side of the bodice. But the best part of the entire look was her quirky rose-printed Charlotte Olympia clear acetate box clutch (which is currently on sale for $629, if you happen to have the funds).
Paired with accessories like low-key black sandals; some truly excellent, loosely-waved hair; and a perfectly matched red lip, the clutch stood out in the outfit as a fun-loving note in the otherwise understated outfit.
This triumph of a Versace ensemble happens to be the latest in a long line of fabulous looks — most recently, she stunned in Lela Rose at a Go90 event in Los Angeles, and she also rather memorably wore hot pink Elie Saab at the 2013 Screen Actors Guild Awards. So, with all that in mind — let's take a look at her New York Film Festival look, complete with flowery clutch.
And if you're interested in snagging the glorious bag, it couldn't be easier (although, like I said, it's not exactly cheap).

But why spend all that money if you can get some just as quirky for a bit cheaper, am I right?
Flowers? Maybe not. But quirky, cute, and affordable? Absolutely.

Luckily for us, it looks like Ms. Dobrev has a lot coming down the pipeline — so we can expect a lot more covet-worthy red carpet moments in coming months. After all, The Vampire Diaries is set to premiere its 7th season on The CW this week — and she's got a horror movie (The Final Girls) premiering on Friday.
