We’ve become accustomed to seeing Vanessa Hudgens attend Coachella every year. But, it looks like the actress has better things to do this year.

Vanessa ditched her annual visit to the early summer music and arts festival in order to make her Broadway debut in the revival of the musical Gigi.

The 26-year-old star made her dramatic entrance Wednesday at the show’s opening night after-party.

For the occasion, Vanessa wore a stained-glass inspired Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet strapless gown.

She wore dark eye makeup and bold red lipstick to accentuate the gothic vibes of the red-and-green dress and wore her dark hair in a simple side-parted bob.

While some critics thought Vanessa’s Alice + Olivia look was a bit too dark and heavy for the entertainer’s petite frame, we love the mature style she’s been evolving into.

Vanessa’s performance in Gigi has also received a bit of criticism, but it looks like the negativity isn’t phasing the actress one bit.

Will you be watching Vanessa Hudgens in Gigi?

From the looks of it, Vanessa wore her favorite pair of Saint Laurent “Jane” ankle-strap sandals to opening night.

The classic shoe style really does go with everything. We’ve spotted everyone from Hilary Duff, Chloe Moretz, Chrissy Teigen, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Aniston, and Angelina Jolie wearing the extremely versatile two-band sandals.

Check out the authentic “Jane” sandals at Nordstrom — and two amazing dupes from Jeffrey Campbell and Steve Madden — at Zappos.
