The “High School Musical” alum exuded chic glamour in a black midi dress by Oscar de la Renta. The sleek ankle-length number was complete with bold straps, a plunging square neckline and a crystal-embellished cutout on the bodice.

To amp up the glam factor, the “Tick, Tick…Boom” star accessorized with a Bony Silver Satin and Crystal Mesh Bag by Jimmy Choo. The striking style is designed with a soft twisted handle and features the signature silver JC emblem, an interior pocket and chain strap. Hudgens styled her brunette locs curly and opted for dewy glam and a pink pout.

As for footwear, the “Bad Boys For Life” actress rounded things out with Jimmy Choo’s Kaylee Platform Sandal. The high heels had a thick outer sole with a wide black strap and thin stiletto heel. A sleek staple during warmer months, many stiletto sandals feature a simple strap across the toes and a fastener strap around the ankle, creating a barely-there construction. The heel of a stiletto sandal is often 4 inches or above, adding some height for a flattering silhouette.
