Vanessa Hudgens embodied elegance in a black lace dress at the Charity Meets Fashion Holiday Celebration Honoring The World's Children last night.
The 24-year-old actress went for a full-on vixen look as she struck cheeky poses at Affirmation Arts in New York City.
The pretty star showed her High School Musical days are firmly in the past with a ladylike black dress, consisting of an intricate lace top and a flared skirt.
For an added touch of glamour, Vanessa donned patterned black tights and a chic blazer to ward off the winter cold.
Chunky black boots gave a tougher edge to the look, while smokey eye make-up and a slick of red lipstick placed her firmly at the top of the Hollywood style stakes.
Also in attendance was Rose McGowan, who opted for a safer take on the all-black look.
The actress sported black tights and a plain mini dress, with cut-out detail on the shoulder.
A little black dress is the perfect choice for any upcoming Christmas parties, as the classic style is fail-safe and suits all skin tones and hair colours.
If you want to spice things up, go for patterned tights like Vanessa or opt for eye-catching make-up such as glitter eyeshadow or a bright lip colour.
