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?

I think she is pretty and i like her in that new outfit. As being known because of Nick, I don’t think it that way. The first time I knew her name and seen her in tv is when she won as Miss Teen USA in 1998. It’s funny because I come to know about Nick when he started dating Vanessa.

I really don’t understand how you could be so critical. Number 1, her head is FAR from fat?! what, seriously, is your idea of skinny then? #2, her shoulders do not look broad; they look beautiful. I feel horribly for these poor women in the spotlight. Some women deserve it, yes. But all this one did was date Nick Lachey and suddenly she’s subject to all this criticism?! Awesome.
Ps, this dress is gorgeous

I think she looks absolutley beautiful…How can u say she is nothing without Nick?..She was somebody before him and still doesn’t need him for people to notice her…What is up with people saying she has a big head or broad shoulders and that her face is fat?…Im sure none of u can judge…Its people like u that make others insecure!

Vanessa makes nice, lovely, sexy, and elegant in this Monique Lhuiller gown; she wears it well! It’s quite a departure from the flashy, sometimes-cheap glad rags she used to wear. More power…
