Vanessa Hudgens‘ upcoming NBC show may be called Powerless, but her style game is nothing but powerfully inspirational.

The actress looked stunning in a gypsy queen-inspired look at the PEOPLE/EW Upfronts party in New York City on Monday. Hudgens, 27, rocked a plunging black Haney dress that featured sheer sleeves and metallic gold patterns. The High School Musical alum completed her ensemble with Stuart Weitzman shoes and a necklace by jeweler Jacquie Aiche.

During the day, Hudgens was a ray of sunshine in a yellow Monique Lhuillier two-piece set which she accessorized with Stuart Weitzman heels and Saint Laurent crossbody bag. “Wind blown and sun swept at the upfronts today!” the style star captioned her photo on Instagram and Twitter.

In the first workplace comedy series of the DC Comics universe, Hudgens plays Emily, a spunky young insurance adjuster specializing in regular-people coverage against damage caused by the crime-fighting superheroes.

Also at the PEOPLE/EW bash were Laverne Cox, America Ferrara, Jaimie Alexander, Christian Slater, Ray Liotta and Mandy Moore.
