Hot vampire alert!

Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder hit the red, er, blue carpet at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards in LA on Sunday evening, and kept things casual in a gray t-shirt and jeans.

We hope he has an acceptance speech prepared!

The hit CW show is nominated for a whopping nine awards at Sunday’s festivities!

Ian hit the carpet solo but his rumored girlfriend and co-star Nina Dobrev wasn’t far behind.

Ian tweeted before the show:

“Teen Choice TOMORROW! Will be nice to see you all… Way nice”

Take a look at the red of photos of Ian looking dreamy in the gallery!
