Vanessa Hudgens has been living the Broadway dream, coming from her not-so-humble beginnings as a Disney star in the High School Musical series beside ex-boyfriend Zac Efron and finally as the leading lady in Broadway’s 2015 rendition of Gigi. Despite the mixed reviews from musical critics, Vanessa was consistently praised for surpassing expectations, proving that she’s not just some celebrity that was plunked into Broadway for her name recall.
The Gigi star also made her first appearance at the Tony Awards this year – a feat that she shared with on-screen rival and off-screen best friend, Ashley Tisdale, who even introduced the Gigi number “The Night They Invented Champagne” at the awards. Cue aww’s here.
The 26-year-old made a stunning appearance at the red carpet of the 2015 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York in a Sachin & Babi dress which she paired with the current it shoe – the Nudist sandals from Stuart Weitzman. Vanessa pulled her hair into a sleek low bun, and turned up the volume on her lashes game, which she complemented with bronze cheeks and nude lips. When it comes to working the red carpet, we’re no longer surprised at Vanessa Hudgens’ styling prowess.
