Vanessa Hudgens Goes From High School To High Fashion

High school musical actress Vanessa Hudgens appears to have graduated into a style icon!

The actress, who is currently in London promoting her new movie Sucker Punch, has been changing outfits at least twice a day as she goes from interview to interview.

One of the coolest was the printed trousers and layered cardigan look she wore to the radio 1 studios.

Vanessa’s become more experimental with fashion since she split from her teenage sweetheart Zac Efron and tried to carve out a career post HSM.

And very exclusively caught up with her after the Sucker Punch premiere to ask about her fashion sense and style. Read her answers in our mini interview below:

QS: Do you have a signature style?

VANESSA: “I like tough and feminine. I’ll wear a beautiful dress toughened up with something like biker boots or a leather jacket.”

QS: What’s your favourite item in your wardrobe right now?

VANESSA: “I have some old comfortable hoodies and they make everything look cooler.

QS: Do you have any favourite shoes?

VANESSA: “I love slouchy, flat boots. They’re practical and cute!”

QS: Is there a celebrity whose style you admire?

VANESSA: “Angelina Jolie. She’s beautiful but you wouldn’t mess with her!”

QS: Do you learn anything about fashion from the films you make?

VANESSA: “Not really, but perhaps I will take something from the next one. It’s called Beastly and it’s a modern day take on Beauty and The Beast but darker and edgier. It’s all about not judging a book by its cover and in my role I get to wear more dramatic, dark clothes. I’m not so sweet and innocent any more.”

If you want to spring clean your wardrobe with a fresh new look then you can copy Vanessa’s interview outfit with clothes from Very. There are lots of cool multi-coloured trousers including the South printed trousers

Or try the pretty Mint velvet paw print harem trousers

Combine printed trousers with a plain top like the Firetrap 3 in 1 jersey top

And keep the Spring breezes out with the South ladder stitch cocoon cardigan

High fashion trousers need some seriously cool shoes like the Coleen elfin peep toe platform shoes

And Vanessa makes the outfit even more interesting with statement jewellery. The Marrakech beaded necklace is very similar to her choice of accessory

Zac Efron must be kicking himself that he let Vanessa get away. This is one single girl that won’t have a problem finding a new man!
