He's a favorite with the ladies, and Ian Somerhalder showed up as expected at the 2012 Film Independent's Spirit Awards on Saturday (February 25).

Taking to the Santa Monica locale, the "Vampire Diaries" actor looked suave in a suit as he mingled his way down the purple carpet ahead of the annual beachfront event.

Drawing plenty of star power, the 2012 Film Independent's Spirit Awards will see big names such as Jessica Chastain, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Elizabeth Banks and Ewan McGregor take the stage as presenters.

Meanwhile, the show will air at 10:00 ET on IFC with Seth Rogen handling the hosting duties.
