Vanessa Hudgens was honored with the Breakthrough Performer Award at the 2015 Industry Dance Awards held at Avalon in Hollywood on Wednesday last week.

The event was held to benefit The Circle of Hope, which is a charity that supports dancers who have survived cancer. She gave an emotional acceptance speech, revealing the sad news that her dad, Greg, has been diagnosed with stage IV cancer.

“Last year, my boyfriend, Austin, lost his mom, Lori, to cancer, and my dad has just been recently diagnosed with stage four cancer. And let me tell you, I hate cancer. I hate cancer with every cell of my being.”

She continued, “This award, it means a lot to me but I dedicate it to my boyfriend’s mom, Lori, my dad, and to all the families out there who are struggling with this because it really takes a strong person and a strong family to be able to help those who are going through this.”

The 26-year-old actress was hard to miss in a Galia Lahav mustard gown, which flaunted not just her cleavage but also her legs and sexy back with its plunging surplice neckline, open back, and thigh-high slit.

The sexy dress’ edgy details include a gold-tone harness-style breastplate and a black leather belt wrapped around her neck.

Vanessa thought of adding more style to her already striking dress by wearing a selection of wooden bangles, some rings, and a pair of metallic heels. Her fierce makeup and waist-long ponytail extension rounded out her look.

There was too much going on in Vanessa’s outfit, and perhaps it was meant to steer the attention away from her fractured finger.

Although we love her shimmering Kurt Geiger “Bond” pumps, a pair of sandals could have worked better with the dress.
