It's been a dog's age since Vanessa Hudgens flexed the singing chops that made her a star. Now, the 26-year-old triple threat is revisiting her musical theater roots in the new Broadway production of Gigi. The iconic role was first made famous by Leslie Caron, who starred in the eponymous 1958 film about a young woman navigating her way through La Belle Époque Paris' bourgeois landscape. But, in the brand new promo for the show, Hudgens channels perhaps the most recognizable symbol of glamor ever: Audrey Hepburn.
With her hair mimicking that iconic Breakfast at Tiffany's updo, and her long , black dress a veritable facsimile of Holly Golightly's classic gown, Hudgens sure has come a long way from her bikini-clad bandit days on the set of Spring Breakers.

Gigi will begin it's run at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. in January before bringing the production to New York later next year. It will mark the first time Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's beloved show has been mounted on Broadway in 40 years.
So yeah, no pressure Vanessa. But, based on the charming sneak peek, Ms. Hepburn, uh, Hudgens, is totally game. Click through to watch.
