Last night’s Academy Awards ceremony was one for the books, and we can’t stop scrolling through all the photos of our favorite stars rocking the most gorgeous looks we’ve ever seen.

One said star took the whole wedding-dress-for-the-Oscars trend even further: Powerless actress Vanessa Hudgens showed up to the Elton John AIDS Foundation’s Academy Awards Viewing Party in a frock that was half corset, half gown, and all screaming “wedding-night sexy.”

The gown, featuring a flowing skirt with thigh-high slits on either side and a neck piece in lieu of upper-body-adorning jewelry, is giving us MAJOR Greek goddess vibes. Like, we’re thinking Hudgens (and her stylist Nat, whom she credits on Instagram with helping her pull the look together) went, “Bridal lingerie, but like…what Aphrodite would wear,” and ran with it.

The back flowed down like a beautiful white waterfall, and almost has us thinking, “Where’s the veil?”

We aren’t sure who she’s blowing a kiss to here, but if it’s her stylist, we totally get it.

Many would shy away from this look, but Vanessa pulls it off flawlessly.

Sure, the High School Musical alum had the earrings, hair, shoes, and flawless “cat eye” liner on point, but she won our hearts when she took to Instagram to tell us all about her most important accessory (and we respect it).

“Essentials for tonight: dress, hair, + one of the new @OREO Chocolate Candy Bars (delicious!),” she wrote.

We hope this serious fashion queen had a blast at the party, where she reportedly met up with HSM co-star and pal Ashley Tisdale. Whether they sang a duet remains to be social-media’ed, but regardless, we wish we had been there too.
