Vanessa Hudgens joined in the Oscar night festivities at the 20th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party.

She wore a gorgeous Georges Chakra Spring 2012 Couture gown.

Her gold strapless mermaid gown with leather foiled cut-outs was thankfully modified to remove the halter strap.

Vanessa’s hair already makes this look feel very matronly; removing the strap keeps the look youthful.

A vintage gold crystal mesh Swarovski clutch completed her look.
