Vanessa Hudgens Wears Larroudé in Her Mayan Jungle Wedding
For her wedding look, Vanessa wanted a dress that felt sleek, modern, and sexy, with a shape inspired by the ’90s supermodels. She ended up choosing a gown by Vera Wang—a light ivory chartreuse bias-cut cowl-neck slip dress with a plunging back. The veil was light ivory tulle with custom embroidery that read: “Mrs. T December 2nd, 2023” in a gothic font.
After sending her stylist Jason Bolden a ton of reference photos, the two went to visit Vera Wang’s New York atelier in person. Vanessa walked around the store and pulled a few of the dresses that she was drawn to—and ultimately, the dress that she wore for her ceremony was actually the first one she tried on. “I put it on, and I was like ‘It’s perfect. It’s easy, it’s simple, and it’s chic,” she says. “It was exactly what I wanted, but we obviously had to spruce it up a little and add some extra love to it so that it was special, just for me. I wanted it to look like I was floating and loved the cape and veil combo,” she says.
When dinner was over, Vanessa changed into her reception dress. She knew she wanted to be in something super-lightweight and airy for this part of the night—in her words, a dress that she could “throw around”—so she opted for another Vera Wang gown, this time made from strapless macrame lace and silk mousseline. “I had found this one dress that had the corset bodice part of the dress I ultimately ended up wearing,” she explains. “It was this French lace with really pretty iridescent stones in it—it was super romantic, but the dress puffed out a lot, so I asked if we could change out the bottom into a chiffon and make it super sheer and flirty, and they actually put lace in built-in underwear and made a garter.” For her reception shoes, she selected a pair of Larroudé Vivienne platforms.
