Vanessa Hudgens Channels Audrey Hepburn for Gigi: Get a Sneak Peek at Her Broadway Debut!

Breakfast at Gigi's! 

Next year, Vanessa Hudgens will take on the classic role of "Gigi" in the Broadway musical of the same name, based on the beloved 1958 film starring Leslie Caron. And as she'll be playing a Parisian icon, who better to channel than the woman who embodied effortless chic around the world: Audrey Hepburn.

In the promotional image and video for the upcoming production—running first in Washington, D.C. from Jan. 16 to Feb. 12 before coming on up to the Greet White Way in 2015—Hudgens, 26, channels both Hepburn and the ladies of turn-of-the-20th-century Paris in an elegant black and white ball gown. Her look is accessorized with opera gloves and, of course, diamonds.

The High School Musical alum also models Hepburn's signature updo—a chignon, with a voluminous bouffant on top and loose curls framing her face.

The clip promises that, "You're invited to experience the romance and glamour of Paris," while Hudgens spins in front of the Eiffel Tower. Based on the Colette novella, Gigi tells the story of a young girl in Paris, training to be a courtesan but craving true love instead.
