Vanessa Hudgens debuted a dramatic look at the 2012 People’s Choice Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live this evening.

The actress traded in her usual boho aesthetic for something a bit sexier, donning a slinky Jenny Packham Fall 2011 gown.

Her black sheer dress with a gold web-like embroidered detail was teamed with dangling gold earrings and black pumps.

Vanessa vamped up the gown with dark, smoky eyes and a sleek up-do.

Do you like this new look on Vanessa, or is it too costumey for you?
