The Vampire Diaries Cast Members: Then & Now Style Photos

On E!’s Fashion Police, one of Joan River’s favorite things to do is to ask her guests, “What was your favorite fashion moment?” and “What fashion moment makes you want to cringe?” No need to have the Joan Rangers step in though: We took care of highlighting the fashion hits and misses of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals casts in this week’s throwback article!

As we compare the “then” pics with more recent photos, one thing becomes apparent: the already gorgeous actors and actresses of our beloved CW series have gotten even more fierce on the red carpet! Many of the leading ladies exchanged fishnet tights and clashing prints for svelte and stunning gowns. The smoldering Salvatores brothers, along with their other gorgeous male co-stars, used to sport sweatshirts, jeans and sneakers on the red carpet (big fashion no-no!). But now, they’re looking great in their dapper suits for world premieres!

Whether their hair went from long to short or blonde to brown, or their outfits went from “hell no!” to “oh yes!,” we still adore each member of the Mystic Falls ensemble. That said, dive into the gallery below (featuring images of Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, Phoebe Tonkin, Claire Holt, Taylor Kinney, Katerina Graham, Candice Accola, Kayla Ewell, Sara Canning, Steven R. McQueen, Michael Trevino, Zach Roerig, Leah Pipes, Charles Michael Davis, Daniella Pineda, Danielle Campbell, and Matt Davis), and take a nice, leisurely stroll down memory lane with the cast of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals!

  1. Musikonica Said:

    Remarkable. How they must have changed in the shole frickin’ years since the show began.

    Updates like this should not be made until at least 10 years minimum has passed since the show’s first airing. I only chose to open this article to point this out.

  2. Hanna Said:

    @Musikonica You’re obviously a dumb bitch who can’t read. The article is talking about their style which changed drastically since becoming famous, rich, and hiring stylists. The photos are proof. You must lead a very pathetic life if complaining about things and making yourself look like a fool is what you do all day.

    Now that this is out of the way I gotta say Nina and Steven changed a lot! Their style is so different!
