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?

Vanessa Hudgens In Camilla and Marc – LeJolie.com Launch Party

Vanessa Hudgens In Camilla and Marc - LeJolie com Launch Party

Vanessa Hudgens attended the LeJolie.com launch party held at No Vacancy in Los Angeles, California yesterday evening.

The actress wore a striking combination of black and animal print wrapped up in this Camilla and Marc Fall 2013 ‘Venice of Gold’ high-impact cocktail dress with a fitted, backless bodice featuring two thick straps which cross-over at the back, and flute-style skirt designed in a leopard-printed three-dimensional rib.

She selected a complementary black-and-gold Edie Parker ‘Lara’ confetti clutch and Greymer ankle boots with gold zip detail.

While she clearly had a lot of fun with this look, including black-and-gold baroque inspired nail art, I would’ve love her hair up and a darker, less bubblegum lip shade.

Vanessa Hudgens hosted ULTA Beauty’s ‘Donate With a Kiss’ event to launch the ULTA Beauty ‘Kiss Kart’ and its fundraising efforts for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® in New York City yesterday evening.

With pink being the colour for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, the actress opted for pink accessories instead of a pink dress, styling her black velvet vintage dress with a sparkling pink Edie Parker clutch and Alice + Olivia pink ‘Dina’ pumps.

The usual boho accessories, including a beaded cuff and a selection of gold necklaces, adorned her look, with wavy ombre tresses tumbling around her shoulders.

Vanessa Hudgens In Temperley London – WWE & E! Entertainment’s ‘SuperStars For Hope’ Event

Vanessa Hudgens In Temperley London - WWE & E! Entertainment's 'SuperStars For Hope' Event

Vanessa Hudgens had a great run promoting her latest movie, ‘Frozen Ground’, but it came to a screeching halt while attending the WWE & E! Entertainment’s ‘SuperStars For Hope’ event held at the Beverly Hills Hotel in California yesterday evening.

Even with her long wavy tresses tied up into a braided updo, there is just too much going on here and she’s total overwhelmed by all the beautiful gold embroidery on her Temperley London long-sleeved black tea-length dress.

The look was styled with a black Edie Parker clutch and black Saint Laurent pumps.

Does this look work for you, or was the dress to overwhelming for her petite frame?
