The City of Stars was certainly shining brightly over the weekend as celebrities turned out to fête Nina Dobrev's birthday with a La La Land-themed bowling soirée. Derek and Julianne Hough were among the guests who took their party outfits up a notch as they channeled Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone's characters from the Golden Globe award-winning movie-musical.

The siblings, who already had an advantage over the other attendees as they are both professional dancers, absolutely slayed their costumes, which paid homage to Stone's character Mia's yellow dress and Gosling's Sebastian.

"La la land!!! @juleshough is the modern day Ginger Rodgers. Pure talent. @ninadobrev Birthday !!!" Derek sweetly complimented his sister in a snap of the pair.

In one seemingly candid photo, Dancing with the Stars champion and judge—who opted for red lips and a loose updo—sits opposite her brother who is dressed to Gosling-level perfection in a newsboy cap, a light coat, and black pants.

Naturally, the festivities called for cake and Dobrev (whose 28th birthday was on Jan. 9) showed off two unique varieties on Instagram. Check out her a rainbow unicorn and photoshopped La La Land cakes here:

Other guests included Aaron Paul and his wife Lauren Parsekian—see group shots below!
