Vanessa Hudgens Wears an Impractical Hiking Outfit: A Halter Dress and Platforms

Vanessa Hudgens has been known for her signature bohemian aesthetic since her "High School Musical" days, and the 34-year-old songstress has only gone on to elevate and perfect that look through the years. Known to be a fan of music festivals, a proper bikini connoisseur, and beauty entrepreneur, the Hollywood mainstay has even hosted red carpet events — including the 2022 Met Gala livestream — to prove her fashion prowess.

Hudgens's current glam squad includes stylist Jason Bolden and hairstylist Danielle Priano, both of whom work closely together to construct looks that tell a story, whether she's sitting front row at a runway show (typically Michael Kors Collection or Vera Wang), or promoting a new film project. Hudgens is also newly engaged to MLB player Cole Tucker, having recently celebrated in a simple white slip dress that just may indicate what type of wedding gown we'll see her in when she walks down the aisle. She's currently sporting an oval-cut engagement ring set on a thin yellow-gold band that is estimated to be 3.5 carats, ranging anywhere from $40,000 to $100,000.

Most recently, Hudgens went hiking with Tucker in an interesting outfit. In an Instagram post shared on August 7, she showed off her unconventional outdoors look, including a black halter dress and chunky platform sandals. The actress completed her look with a white button-down shirt tied at her waist and gold moon-shaped earrings. For her makeup look, she went with soft pink eyeshadow and blush as well as rosy lips. Her hairstyle included a messy updo and two face-framing strands hanging in the front. "High altitude," she captioned the post.
