Vanessa Hudgens Takes the Plunge at ‘Gimme Shelter’ Premiere

She went to great lengths to disguise her beauty in her latest film Gimme Shelter, but actress Vanessa Hudgens went all out glam for the movie’s Los Angeles premiere. 

The 25-year old actress looked gorgeous in a black Giorgio Armani gown with a plunging neckline last night at the Egyptian Theater. Vanessa, who was spotted hugging her silver screen mom Rosario Dawson (wow, we’re old) on the red carpet, plays a homeless teen desperately trying to escape her dire circumstances. It’s Vanessa’s first starring role and opportunity to break free from the High School Musical mold that’s dogged she and her co-stars.

Of course, Vanessa co-starred in last year’s subversive Spring Breakers, but this is the first headlining role for the native Californian. Gimme Shelter hits theaters January 24th. For more photos of Vanessa, launch the gallery above.
