Vanessa Hudgens is fearless when it comes to experimenting with her style.

And on Thursday, the High School Musical star, 32, leaned into Victorian era fashion, during a birthday picnic for her artist pal Franz Szony in which she was delightedly entertaining the crowd.

Making sure she was perfectly clad for the event, she modelled a wide-brimmed bonnet with an elegant black chin tie, along with an eccentric gold-patterned tiered evening gown with black sash belt from Christian Dior. 

Vanessa was sure to keep in with the artistic vibe of the day as she had fun and frolicked while sporting the floor-sweeping yellow gown, which featured multiple layers and textures.

Her brunette hair was styled into a romantic bun with a few pieces left out to create a soft look while she later added in her straw boater to the look which gave an in-keeping touchb.

The sheer material of her yellow dress gave a glimpse of her black bra underneath, which combined well with the black ribbon fastening on the bust and the ribbon under her chin. 

Her statement gown featured peasant sleeves and a delicate yellow and gold pattern in various stripes and geometric patterns woven throughout the floor-sweeping shape.
