Do You Like Vanessa Minnillo's Elegant New Look?

04/25/2007 at 05:00 PM ET

We’ve had some issues with Vanessa Minnillo’s wardrobe in the past — too tight, too shiny, too sequined. But last night at the Breast Cancer Research Foundation Hot Pink Party in N.Y.C, Vanessa looked absolutely elegant, from her sideswept updo to her bib-front lace Monique Lhuiller gown to her Swarovski clutch. At the event, she told PEOPLE that she was moving on from TRL because she didn’t “want to be 48, saying, ‘Hey kids, now it’s Sean Preston Spears’s video,'” so maybe this heralds a new, more grown-up version of Vanessa. With her attention focused on her new makeup line for Flirt, which she calls “foolproof”, we hope to see Vanessa keep up the stylishly good work! Tell us: What do you think of Vanessa’s new look? Like it better or miss the old version?

Vanessa was frequently in the news before Nick – both because of her job on Entertainment Tonight and MTV. People are truly amazing – she’s beautiful, yet most of the people who’ve posted see fit to rip her to shreds! Hmm, I don’t see any of you on the red carpet or showing up on People’s pages! She looks lovely, elegant, and neither her head nor her shoulders are big or broad. Jealously – such an ugly green monster.

I agree, People magazine is really pumping Vanessa up. She’s not a big name so why does she have so many articles on this website?

I really like this dress. Normally, I think she dresses very tacky and cheap. Maybe Nick hired a stylist for her or is buying designer clothes for her.

I still can’t figure out this average looking girl landed a hottie like Nick.

Vanessa is a pretty girl.
She looks great in ALMOST
everything that she wears.
This dress however is NOT
cute. The turtleneck style
with the buttons and ruffles
has too much detail on the
dress. Maybe if the dress
was simple without the
high turtleneck or buttons
or ruffles, the dress
would simply be classy
and stylish.

Anyway goodluck Vanessa on your future
projects ahead! Looking forward to see
her in Fantastic Four Part2.

I think Vanessa is such a pretty girl! I like the color and the added texture of the black belt and even the ruffles. However, I do not like the turtleneck look. I think it makes her neck look big when it is actually petite. Kudos for being daring!

She looks gorgeous!! Look at her…amazing!! All of you who are dissing her outfit and saying she is too top heavy?!?! Are you nuts, I think you all wished you looked half that good! Awesome look, Vanessa!

The dress is a bit risky with the ruffled neckline but I think she pulls it off well. She’s beautiful IMO, so she could wear a potato sack and still look good. I believe I read somewhere that the dress is by Monique it’s not like Vanessa bought the dress off the rack.
