Vanessa Hudgens has a red carpet repertoire like no other. Whether she’s twirling on the Met Gala red carpet in a sheer Moschino gown or posing in a breezy Vera Wang dress at the MTV Movie and TV Awards, she always knows how to deliver a glamorous fashion moment. So, it’s not surprising that she took the opportunity to turn her Halloween costume into an elegant outfit fit for a gala.
The 33-year-old actress made an appearance at the annual Thriller Halloween party, hosted by Prince Michael Jackson, dressed to the nines. She wore a high-neck gown covered completely in black and silver feathers. The breathtaking design features a chest cutout that stretches to her navel and a slit that reaches to her thigh. She finished the showstopping look with dangling black chandelier earrings and knee-high boots.
Hudgens’s makeup was just as arresting. Her heavy black eyeshadow with feather detail on her brows complemented the gown perfectly, as did her vampy black lipstick and manicure. With long strips of feathers dangling from her sleeves, Hudgens made for one unforgettable Black Swan, even as she ditched the usual bodysuit costume for a gown instead.
When she’s not serving up drama on the red carpet, Hudgens is experimenting with the most popular seasonal trends. She recently sat front row at the Michael Kors show wearing a plunging gray catsuit. She made an appearance at Thomas Ashbourne’s margarita dinner in a high-slit gown with trendy slime-green, knee-high boots. She posed for a Barbiecore-themed shoot wearing a bra-and-briefs set in a soft pink hue. And we can’t forget her championing the thongkini trend all summer, in every style from neon to leopard print.
