One of the first to arrive on the Met Gala red carpet, Vanessa Hudgens certainly made a statement, despite the look itself being relatively simple. Although I’m not sure many people during America’s Gilded Age wore see-through dresses, Hudgens’ sheer Met Gala 2022 dress certainly... captured the grandiosity of this era’s fashion.

Minutes after stepping on to the Met Gala red carpet, Hudgens struck a fierce pose in her black, sheer dress, layers of fabric flying on either side of her.

Styled by Jason Bolden, Hudgens wore little under the sheer, long-sleeve Moschino dress, save for a pair of lace underwear.

The dress’s puffed sleeves, turtleneck, and delicate lace appliqués offer a subtle, sexy nod to the 2022 Met Gala theme: “In America: An Anthology of Fashion.”

Hudgens’ stylist took this year’s “gilded glamour” theme seriously, styling Hudgens with diamond-encrusted Messika jewels to contrast her dark dress.

Hudgens’ earrings especially were the ultimate statement pieces, with a three-tiered, jewel-filled design that grazed the tops of her shoulders.

Can we have a little commotion for the hair, please? Hudgens styled her hair in a slicked-back updo, laced with a string of rhinestones to match her jewels.

Hudgens’ makeup was a perfect complement to her gilded look. The actor wore a sultry smokey eye with voluminous false lashes, a strong black eyeliner wing, heavy contour, and a glossed nude lip.

While Hudgens’ 2022 Met Gala look is certainly a sight to behold from the front, the back deserves its own round of applause, with its lengthy, lacy train that draped across the Met steps. She served from every angle.
