Jenny Packham

Vanessa Hudgens in Jenny Packham at the InStyle 2013 Golden Globes After-Party

Vanessa attended the InStyle 2013 Golden Globes After-Party wearing one of my favorite looks from Jenny Packham's Spring 2013 collection. I simply adore her glamorous liquid black, curve-hugging dress featuring a plunging neckline and embellished gold detailing. I was kind of hoping to see this look on Jordana Brewster or Minka Kelly, but Vanessa does it justice.

The young star accented her ensemble with a embossed Daniel Swarovski clutch and intricate gold square shaped earrings.

A wavy up-do, kohl-rimmed eye and nude lip added the finishing touches.
