Vanessa Hudgens is making a play for diamond of the 2022 Met Gala.
On May 2, the actor arrived at the closest event we have to a Regency-era ball wearing what one might describe as the Bridgerton of all sheer dresses. The see-through black gown by Moschino covers the actor from neck to toe in see-through material and intricate lace detailing around the bust. But what really makes the look are the grand puffy sleeves that add a serious amount of drama and Lady Danbury–esque elegance. Hudgens topped off the look with stunning jewels by Messika.
As for her beauty look, Hudgens wore her hair in an intricately braided bun and kept the drama going with a champagne smoky eye and a pale pink lip.
If there was any further doubt of this look’s inspiration, aside from the Met Gala’s “Gilded Glamour” theme, Vanessa Hudgens looked poised to promenade with fashion journalist Hamish Bowles and La La Anthony, who wore Ralph Lauren and LaQuan Smith, respectively.
The 2022 Met Gala is being cohosted by Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Regina King, and Lin-Manuel Miranda. The “Gilded Glamour” theme serves as a lavish follow-up to last year’s exhibition, In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, which was postponed to September 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Both parts of the In America: An Anthology of Fashion exhibit will be open to the public from May 7 until September 5, 2022.
