Vanessa Hudgens In Monique Lhuillier – ‘Gimme Shelter’ New York Premiere

Vanessa Hudgens In Monique Lhuillier - ‘Gimme Shelter’ New York Premiere

Vanessa Hudgens attended the ‘Gimme Shelter’ screening on Wednesday (January 22) in New York City.

Turning the glamour dial up several notches, from a setting which was already quite high, the actress stunned wearing a Monique Lhuillier Spring 2013 black tulle embellished gown.

While some may say that this is perhaps too glamorous for a New York Premiere, I would say stand back, she’s on a roll.

Working one of her best looks to date she styled the look with a black Edie Parker clutch, gold jewels and purposely messy side braid.

Vanessa Hudgens made a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’ on Wednesday evening (January 15) to promote her new movie, ‘Gimme Shelter’.

The actress continued her love affair with all things Giorgio Armani, donning a sexy strapless LBD from the Italian brand featuring an embellished bodice, which she styled with black Saint Laurent ‘Jane’ sandals, onyx earrings, silver rings and a gold Cartier bracelet.

I’m loving the new glam, sexy, sophisticated Vanessa; I hope she can keep this phase going while promoting this movie.

A central-parted updo and red lippie rounded out her look.

Vanessa Hudgens In Maria Lucia Hohan - 25th Birthday Party

Vanessa Hudgens celebrated her 25th birthday with a celebratory party held at No Vacancy on Saturday (December 14) in Hollywood, California with her boyfriend Austin Butler.

The actress channelled her inner 40s screen siren wearing a Maria Lucia Hohan blush-coloured gown, amping up the look with white satin opera gloves accented with Jenny Packham jewels, a fur stole and silver satin embellished clutch.

Her sultry, mysteriously sexy femme-fatale look was styled with Veronica Lake long wavy locks for the finishing touch.

Did she nail the look for you without looking to costumey?

Vanessa Hudgens In Hugo Boss – 2013 amfAR Inspiration Gala Los Angeles

Vanessa Hudgens In Hugo Boss - 2013 amfAR Inspiration Gala Los Angeles

Vanessa Hudgens attended the 2013 amfAR Inspiration Gala Los Angeles held at Milk Studios on Thursday evening (December 12) in Los Angeles, California joining Zoe Saldana, Goldie Hawn and Alessandra Ambrosio.

The actress wore a Hugo Boss look which consisted of a cropped satin-lapel blazer styled with a high-waisted maxi skirt with floral appliqués.

Despite this being a mid-December midriff-baring look, I find myself really liking this look.

The danger with Vanessa is usually her styling, which is often overworked, but on this occasion just a Swarovski jet crystal ‘Pure’ clutch, gold bracelet and glossy red lips didn’t disrupt the simple nature of her look.

Vanessa Hudgens In Thakoon – CFDA/Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists

Vanessa Hudgens In Thakoon - CFDAVogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists

Vanessa Hudgens attended the CFDA and Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists celebration held at Spring Studios in New York City yesterday evening.

The actress wore a sleeveless, white Thakoon Resort 2014 dress with Tabitha Simmons ‘Fitzgerald’ sandals and Irene Neuwirth jewels.

While this is a lovely dress, and the peek-a-boo stairstep paneling on the sides is quite intriguing, it just doesn’t leave me with the ‘wow’ I would have liked.

I love that Vanessa has been taking a break from her usual boho styling recently, but the beehive updo and red lip just make this look seem too mature.

Perhaps a long, sleek ponytail would have given this the extra attitude I’m wishing for.

What do you think–do you love Vanessa’s sophisticated turn, or are you missing her typical edge?

Vanessa Hudgens In Dolce & Gabbana – YouTube Music Awards 2013

Vanessa Hudgens In Dolce & Gabbana - YouTube Music Awards 2013

Vanessa Hudgens attended the YouTube Music Awards 2013 held in New York City on Sunday evening.

The actress donned a Dolce & Gabbana wool-and-silk-blend dress printed with a mosaic inspired by Sicily’s Cathedral of Monreale.

As Vanessa’s style can often be very hit and miss, I am surprised by how much I actually love this look on her. I expected that this would only work on someone much taller, but she makes it work.

I’m glad her boho styling didn’t come into play here. Gold sparkling pumps, a selection of rings and a dark manicure topped off the look.

Are you as enamoured by this look as I am?
