So sheer! Vanessa Hudgens was seen heading to the annual Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum Of Art in New York City on Monday afternoon
Vanessa smiled confidently as she showed off a lot of her body. Her breasts could be clearly seen and they would be fully seen if it was not for the pasties under her sheer dress.
Hudgens added black open toe platform heels with a Mary jane strap that showed off her white pedicure.
The Grease: Live star had her hair pulled up and wrapped in black material as long diamond earrings nearly touched her shoulders.
Chloe Grace Moretz was also seen leaving The Mark as she had on a metallic coat over off-white slacks and silver pumps.
Phoebe Dynevor of Bridgerton fame looked like she took a page from Vanessa Hudgens’ book as she wore a black sheer gown with a beaded bottom.

The red carpet for the Met Gala is the most watched fashion parade in the world with the top designers presenting their creations that are worn on celebrities.
This year’s fun kicked off in the early afternoon at the Metropolitan Museum in New York City’s Upper East Side neighborhood.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit, also known as the Met Gala, is considered by many as the ‘Super Bowl of celebrity red carpets.’
Fashion’s biggest night is traditionally held the first Monday in May to raise money for the Costume Institute in New York City, with last year’s event moved to September due to the pandemic.

This year’s dress code is ‘gilded glamour’ to match the theme of ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion,’ a continuation of last year’s ‘In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.’
Tickets for the glitzy event can reportedly cost up to $35,000 apiece, while prices for a table range from $200,000 to $300,000, with last year’s bash raking in a whopping $16.4 million for the Met’s Costume Institute.
Regina King, power couple Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, and Lin-Manuel Miranda are hosting this time, taking over from Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman and Naomi Osaka.
No dress for her: Chloe Grace Moretz was also seen leaving The Mark as she had on a metallic coat over off white slacks and silver pumps
This will be Miranda’s first time as a Met Gala co-chair (and guest) but he was originally intended to co-host the 2020 edition before the pandemic forced its cancellation.
Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is once again supervising the benefit as chairwoman, a position she’s held since 1995. Her fellow honorary co-chairs are designer Tom Ford and Instagram head Adam Mosseri.
As usual, the sartorial theme comes from the exhibit the gala launches: ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion,’ which is the second of star curator Andrew Bolton’s two-part show exploring the roots of American style.
This exhibit will showcase some lesser-known designers, and also some top film directors, including Sofia Coppola, Martin Scorsese, host King, and last year’s Oscar winner Chloé Zhao.
Bolton said eight directors will create what he called ‘cinematic vignettes’ in the period rooms of the American Wing of the museum.

Similar to the September event, there will be 400 guests this year, lower than the pre-pandemic highs of 500-600 attendees.
The other four are Ford, the celebrated fashion designer who’s also an acclaimed film director, Janicza Bravo (Zola), Julie Dash (Daughters Of The Dust) and Autumn de Wilde (who directed the Jane Austen adaptation Emma. and is also a photographer).
The first part of the exhibition will remain on display in the rooms of the Anna Wintour Costume Center, along with the second part, until September 5.
More than half the pieces in the opening exhibition will be rotated out and garments from designers not yet featured will go on display.
The Met Gala is a huge money-maker for the museum, and provides the Costume Institute with its main source of funding.
