Vanessa Hudgens may be baby-faced but she is far from a child. Just observe how grown up this starlet looks in her most recent Candie’s shoot. In this photo she holds a mustache mug on a sunken couch wearing jeans and a warm caramel jacket.
With previews for the Candie’s Fall 2011 Back-to-School collection, each ad also includes a Candie’s life philosophy, such as “Candie’s girls never take life too seriously” and “Candie’s girls never forget to treat themselves.”
Who are Vanessa’s fashion heroes? According to People.com, she admires Bianca Jagger, Cher, Miley Cyrus, the Olsen Twins, Ashley Tisdale and Blake Lively to name a few. An interesting mix, but not so surprising considering how often Vanessa raves about ‘60s and ‘70s looks and her love for ladies who “play with fashion and have fun with it!”
Vanessa is also breaking away from her cutesy “High School Musical” image with films like action-drama “Sucker Punch” and the new indie flick she has lined up for 2012: “Gimme Shelter,” directed by Ron Krauss.
According to MovieWeb.com, “Gimme Shelter” will feature Vanessa as “a pregnant teen who becomes homeless after fleeing from her abusive mother.” She seeks out her biological father for refuge only for him to pressure her to have an abortion. She refuses and takes once again to the streets. In another article about the project on ComingSoon.net, a casting call for Vanessa’s part says she is “eventually taken under the wing of Father McCarthy, the chaplain of the local hospital after almost getting herself killed.”
Skeptics aside, this new drama could be Vanessa’s big break! But dressing like an A-list actress in the meantime does not hurt. Here is an example of Vanessa looking Oscar-worthy in a gray pashmina scarf and brown jacket.
In love with the scarf but know pashmina is not in season? Check out our gray two-tone linen scarf! Light for easy summer wear, this scarf is also available in Ocean Blue and Rose Red to add some flare to any outfit.
