A few years ago she was best-known as the star of Disney films but these days Vanessa Hudgens is a mature and glamorous young woman.
The 23-year-old is clearly getting used to the jet-set lifestyle and looked radiant as she attended a fashion show in Monaco yesterday.
The U.S. star was a guest of honour at the Amber Lounge event in Monte Carlo ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix.

Wearing a floor-length white dress, Hudgens literally shimmered as she posed with her hand on her hip.
The sequinned garment featured spaghetti straps and the brunette actress wore it with a simple gold bangle and a butterfly ring.
With her dark hair draped over her right shoulder, Hudgens grinned for the cameras before making her way inside where she gave a speech in front of the star-studded audience.

Watching the High School Musical star was socialite sisters Tamara Ecclestone and her married sister Petra.
Tamara showed off her curves in a figure-hugging light gold dress which she wore with spiked Louboutin shoes.
The brunette carried a glitzy Union Jack clutch bag and cosied up to her blonde sibling as they posed for photos.

Petra also bared her legs in a long-sleeved embellished dress which she teamed with gold stilettos.
She, too, carried a patriotic clutch bag and tried her best to channel the mean and moody look for the cameras.
Joining the sisters was Tamara's boyfriend Omar Khyami who wore a black shirt with blue faded jeans.

Their father – and Formula One supremo – Bernie was also in attendance and arrived with his dark-haired fiance Fabiana Flosi on his arm.
Another couple who appeared to be smitten with one another was Skins star Nicholas Hoult and his girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence.
The Hunger Games star looked fantastic in a bright red one-shoulder dress which she wore with gold strapped heels.
Hoult looked rather smart in black trousers and a light blue shirt as he stayed close to his actress girlfriend.

The famous faces found themselves in Royal company at the fashionable event as not only did Prince Albert II of Monaco show up with his wife Princess Charlene, but so did Sophie, Countess of Wessex.
The 47-year-old wore a knee-length champagne-coloured dress as she posed with various important guests and was later seen enjoying the fashion show from her seat.

However, two people who didn't see the models strut down the catwalk was Nicole Scherzinger and her beau Lewis Hamilton.
The U.S. singer is obviously in Monaco to support her racing driver boyfriend, and were seen walking around outside the event with the former Pussycat Doll showing off her enviable figure in a slinky black dress and sparkly heels.
