VANESSA HUDGENS looked very cute in a layered peach dress as she graced Variety’s 2012 Power of Youth, which was held at Paramount Studios in L.A. on Saturday.

Despite taking on more mature and daring roles—she plays a bikini-wearing bank robber in “Spring Breakers” and a sexy stripper in the upcoming thriller film “Frozen Ground”—Vanessa hasn’t stopped dressing in cutesy outfits that make her look more like the “High School Musical” Vanessa who was perpetually seen on the arm of her then-boyfriend, Zac Efron.

But it’s a welcome sight, since sexy, sultry looks don’t really suit Vanessa.

The brunette beauty was super adorable in a high-necked peach Moschino dress with layered ruffles, which she paired with sky-high brown platform heels, gold chandelier earrings, and a statement ring.

A purposely-messy updo, smokey brown eye makeup, and glossy, peachy-pink lips finished the look.

We think Vanessa looked great.
