Vanessa Hudgens Channels The Wrong Audrey Hepburn In 'Gigi' Promo

In her Broadway debut -- sadly, "High School Musical" doesn't count -- Vanessa Hudgens will star as the title character in "Gigi," a role that launched Audrey Hepburn's career. But in the promotional video for the play's pre-Broadway, four-week run in Washington, D.C., Hudgens looks a lot more like one of Hepburn's other characters.

A stage adaptation of the 1944 novella by Colette, "Gigi" tells the story of an unconventional, 18th century Parisian courtesan who is urged by her family to pursue a rich playboy.

Here's what Hepburn looked like in costume for the 1951 production:

Meanwhile, Hudgens' Gigi wears elbow-length black gloves, diamonds and a black, satin dress ...
