Nina Covers Nylon February 2012

Taking over front page duties for their latest offering, Nina Dobrev graces the cover of the February 2012 issue of NYLON magazine.

The “Vampire Diaries” darling got decked out in a jacket by MCQ, shirt by Emporio Armani, shorts by Siwy and multiple jewelry accessories for the Marvin Scott Jarrett shot front page.

In the accompanying spread, Miss Dobrev’s stylist Riawna Capri revealed that they decided to go for a “vintage Vegas cowgirl” look.

“I’ve known her a long time, so we were excited to do something a bit more creative for the NYLON cover. Nina brought in all of these feather clip-ons from home, and we ended up doing a messy braid on one side of her head and then another braid with the turquoise, yellow and purple feathers twisted in,” Capri told of Nina’s hairstyle.

Riawna added, “I used two different sized irons and curled her hair in various directions, so no pieces were uniform. We wanted the finish to be natural and organic.”

Meanwhile, makeup artist Vasilios Tanis added, “We looked to a tawny, Raquel Welch-style model as a reference with dramatic lashes.”
