A closer look at Vanessa Hudgen’s black platform sandals.

For the shoes, Hudgens slipped on a pair of black platform sandals that helped give the moment a streamlined appearance while also adding some height to her attire.

Hudgens’ essential fashion aesthetic consists of trendy, modern outfits that are chic and classic. On the footwear front, she gravitates toward silhouettes like heeled sandals, chunky sneakers, height-defying boots and sharp pumps. She also typically fancies flowy dresses, intricate bathing suits and oversized suiting.

When all dolled up, Hudgens has an affinity for brands like Alexandre Vauthier, Cult Gaia and Valentino. Hudgens has also had a few campaigns over the years, working with labels like Bongo and Candie’s.

“Tick, Tick… Boom” is based on an autobiographical musical written by “Rent” scribe Jonathan Larson, exploring how he navigated love, friendship and the pressures of life as an artist in New York City. Along with Hudgens, the film stars Andrew Garfield and Alexandra Shipp, under the direction of Lin-Manuel Miranda. It was released in theaters and on Neflix on Nov. 12.
