Get The Look: Vanessa Hudgens / Dulce and Gabbana

Last week Vanessa Hudgens looked stunning as she walked the red carpet for the first ever Youtube Awards held at Pier 36 in New York City. And what an entrance she made! Hudgens is known for her bohemian style and love of patterns so it came as no surprise that she chose an eye catching wool-and-silk-blend Dolce and Gabbana dress printed with a mosaic inspired by Sicily's Cathedral of Monreale. This is from the fashion houses' Fall 2013 collection. 

This creation was seen in both longer and shorter lengths on the D&G runway earlier in the year. It is certainly not for the faint-hearted (or those who dislike loud patterns or frankly gold or yellow tones!) but is a stunning gown all the same. Vanessa rocked it with neutral make up, her signature loose curls, minimal jewelry and beautiful gold lace beaded pointed D&G pumps also from their Fall '13 collection.

Now for us mere mortals this dress will set you back a cool €2500. Pocket change really...heh, yeah right! Luckily iclothing have a similar version for a fraction of the cost of its designer counterpart. This version, the Rita Print Bodycon Tunic, has a beautiful detailed mosaic print set on a striking gold background. Granted it is the shorter version of the D&G dress it is a total steal at €30 and perfect for the upcoming party season and those wishing to replicate Vanessas style!

Any avid Vanessa style fans will love this pick! Personally I have been following Vanessas' style evolution down through the years and can only commend her on her daring style choices! This dress is perfect for the season ahead. It could be a key piece in anyone's winter wardrobe or for anyone wishing to stand out from the crowd amongst the usual LBD's!

  2. Love that dress Vanessa's wearing. The "steal" is a good option though the original is absolutely stunning!
