She’s come a long way from her High School Musical days, and it isn’t just movie roles which have amped up a gear for brunette beauty Vanessa Hudgens. The actress/singer/Zac Efron’s former squeeze has added some seriously grown up pizazz to her wardrobe of late as she promotes her new film, The Frozen Ground. As she hits red carpets around the world, from UK to Italy, alongside co-star Nicholas Cage, she's been showing off some serious sartorial delights.
We traditionally know VG for her annual hippe-esque boho Coachella numbers, usually featuring some fringing, paisley and crop tops, so we squealed with joy when Vanessa followed in fellow Spring Breaker Selina Gomez’s fashion footsteps. Just like Selena, Vanessa is ditching her Disney cuteness and choosing a much more sophisticated and fash-tastic working wardrobe.
Now that she's touring the premiere circuit with Nicholas Cage, Hudgens has pulled out all the style stops. Our favourite ensemble this far? A green sequin hooded jumpsuit by Diane Von Furstenberg which she wore to a the 2013 Ischia Global Film Festival Awards dinner at the weekend. The elegantly covered-up but glitzy one-piece is as age appropriate as it is sweet.
