Victoria Justice reminds me of Nina Dobrev, only, younger and with bigger eyes. I think she’s an exceptionally stunning young actress, and I also think she’s a little underappreciated. Thankfully, with her new MTV show, Eye Candy, that will soon no longer be the case.

On Friday, the former Victorious star promoted her new show on Sirius XM in New York City. For the occasion, Victoria kept things simple by wearing a cozy sweater, a russet brown skater skirt, and some black tights. She kept a black leather coat handy and added a dash of sass to her cold-weather style by punctuating the ensemble with s fringed purse and some leopard-print booties.

How do you like Victoria’s outfit? Do you fancy the way she finished the ensemble with leopard print booties? Or do you think it was a bad choice? Would you wear her outfit?

I think she looks alright. The only detail I’m not too fond of is the open-toe design of her shoes. Closed-toe boots would have been the better choice. Would you agree?

I couldn’t find any details on Victoria’s booties at the moment, but below are similar style shoes you may consider if you fancy her animal-print heels:

Pair your bootie of choice with black tights, a short skater skirt, and a sweater to steal Victoria’s style. Feel free to complete the look with a black coat, scarf, and a fringe purse for added drama.
