Vanessa Hudgens got a major lift with her towering platforms she wore during Paris Fashion Week.
The “Tick, Tick…Boom” actress stepped out in Paris on Sunday night after attending Valentino’s runway show. For her outing, all eyes were on her printed black and white furry coat. The oversized jacket added warmth as well as an interesting detail to the full outfit. Underneath, Hudgens wore a black mesh mini dress with black undergarments that peeked out under the sheer material. Hudgens tied her hair up and added a black leather bag to the look.
Hudgens added a major boost to her 5-foot-1 frame with her shoes. She slipped into a pair of black patent leather platform boots for her outing. The boots featured a platform adding at least 2 inches to the overall height of the heeled boots. Platform heels have been making a comeback since 2020 and seem to be here to stay. Numerous boots, sandals and pumps with platform soles, often paired with block and stiletto heels, are favored for their instant height boost. Giuseppe Zanotti, Valentino and Versace platforms have been worn by Kate Beckinsale, Charli D’Amelio and Tessa Thompson in recent weeks.
When it comes to shoes, Hudgens’ preferred styles vary between sleek and sporty. The “High School Musical” alum often wears chunky sneakers for off-duty looks and the gym, from brands including Mercer Amsterdam, Naked Wolfe and Balenciaga. When hitting the red carpet, she usually wears pointed-toe pumps and platforms from Manolo Blahnik, Brian Atwood and Stuart Weitzman.
