It’s always fun to watch celebs wear designer clothes so coveted, they haven’t even hit Net-a-Porter yet.
But it’s also fun – really fun – to see an actress look fantastic in something from her own closet.
Here’s Vampire Diaries’ actress Candice Accola wearing a Marc by Marc black Panthera sheath dress from their Fall 2011 collection.
It’s no longer in stores, but Topshop made a really similar pattern that’s now in stores.
[Editor's Note: You can also try eBay; I got this dress there a couple months ago for about $150. --Faran]
Candice pairs the dress with a funky charm bracelet, basic black booties, shiny red lip gloss, and a trendy side braid.
And now if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to raid our own closets for tonight’s party look.
