As date nights go, it certainly beats a trip to the movies.

Vanessa Hudgens and her boyfriend Austin Butler looked like they could be looking for some inspiration as they giggled and pointed their way through the Victoria's Secret lingerie fashion show.

The pair were seen looking loved-up and glamorous at the annual star-studded event in New York on Wednesday.

Former
Disney star Vanessa, 23, showed up in a leopard print coat, vampish clingy black dress and
knee high tan suede boots and looked every inch the curvy, mature
actress she is these days.

Her glossy black mane tumbled over her shoulders and she highlighted her natural beauty with smokey eyes and scarlet lips.

The
High School Musical actress was accompanied by her boyfriend of a year
Austin, 21, who looked dapper in a sharp suit with his wavy blonde locks
slicked back for the night.

'High School Musical was incredible
and it was so fun and it gave me so many fans which I’m very, very
thankful for, but it also closed people’s minds up as to which
characters I could portray.'

On more recent film projects such as
Spring Breakers with James Franco and Gimme Shelter with Brendan Fraser
and Rosario Dawson, she said: 'Definitely crossing over and being able
to tackle these grittier parts was a challenge but I feel like I’ve done
it! It’s a whole new chapter!'
