Vanessa Hudgens Stuns, Reunites With Monique Coleman, At ‘Gimme Shelter’ NY Premiere — See Pics!

Vanessa Hudgens was looking absolutely stunning on the red carpet at the New York premiere of her latest film Gimme Shelter on Wednesday night (January 22nd), hosted by Roadside Attractions and Day 28 Films with The Cinema Society at the Museum of Modern Art. In her gorgeous, beaded Monique Lhuillier gown, the incredible transformation she had to undergo to play the character of Apple Bailey in the movie is even more apparent.

In addition to posing with co-stars Rosario Dawson, Brendan Fraser, Ann Dowd, and Laneya Wiles, and director Ronald Krauss, Vanessa and the cast was joined at the screening by Kathy DiFiore, the real life inspiration behind the film.

V also had a special guest at the premiere: former High School Musical co-star Monique Coleman, who raved about her performance on Instagram. “SO amazing catching up with @vanessahudgens after #GimmeShelter premiere! She COMPLETELY transformed herself in this amazing film!! SO PROUD! #friendsforlife,” she wrote. “Just soooo grateful to have witnessed such a sensational performance by someone I love so much!”
