Vanessa Hudgens IS CHER!

Posted on December 22, 2011

Oh, to be young and in love seen in public.

Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler in Burbank, California.

Free People Cropped Fairisle Pullover

Ember Skye Nicole Bag

And it is because you’re so young, Vanessa Hudgens, that we will not point and laugh (too hard) at the utterly ridiculous getup you put together for your photo op. Because hey, maybe you have some sort of condition where your upper thighs and shoulders get really hot while the rest of you is really cold. And who knows? Maybe headbands and fringe will make a comeback. They certainly worked in getting Cher’s career off the ground. Of course that was almost 50 years ago, but hey, good for you for looking to your betters for inspiration, girl. Maybe you can get that boy toy to put on a fake fur vest and vertical-stripe bell-bottoms for you.

      This outfit is better than the one she wore the other day, unfortunately. Brown, lace bell bottoms were involved.

        When I saw they were posting about Vanessa, I first assumed it was for those brown lace leggings/bell bottoms. She’s on a roll with attention grabbing outfits.

        I thought that was the one they were posting about. Or maybe the black pants with holes. Nope she’s going for the trifecta!

          Yeah, I didn’t think there could possibly be a THIRD sartorial horror so soon, but I was wrong. It’s like she’s on a mission to explore every possible way of aerating her thighs.

      Oh dear lord NO!!!!!!
      Why oh why is THAT the first thing I see today? There are really far too many wrong notes here to single out.  I will say she looks genuinely smitten, however, by Austin. Why is he wearing a stocking cap in effing Southern California? Are they expecting a blizzard?

        Either smitten, or realllly stoned.

        I’m from So Cal and believe it or not, they think it’s cold right now.  For about 3 weeks the temps drop to the 50s and 60s and everyone breaks out their sweaters to bundle up.  The starlet types will do exactly what Vanessa is doing, somehow bring the skank to their ensemble.  Unfortunately, I have seen more than my share of get ups just like this.  When you are visiting LA, and want to see a “celeb” just look for someone who is over accessorized and skanky, both male and female and it will probably be someone famous or semi famous, or a wanna be.

          As a native Caifornian I know very well that “sunny California” doesn’t always live up to its reputation. But let’s face it, he’s not wearing that cap because it’s cold. He’s wearing the cap because that’s a fad among a lot of young men these days.

      alas the shading on those shorts makes Vanessa appear to have had a rather unfortunate accident in them…..

        To be fair, I think that’s the shadow cast by his skinny little thigh, not a feature of the shorts. Still, an unfortunate shadow.

          I don’t think so. I think the areas where patch pockets would be is intentionally bleached lighter. Very stupid look.

    • MilaXX

      She looks a hot mess. if she had just worn that sweater with a simple pair of jeans and flats without the bag and headband she could have looked cute.

    • foodycat

      Doesn’t the boyfriend look like Macauley Culkin? You know, I’d be OK with what she was wearing if only she had skinny jeans on instead of those godawful bleached jean shorts.

      Let’s take a moment on the dude friend here.  Cute outfit, but you MUST ditch the douchehat.  There is not a human living who doesn’t look like a huge tool in that style of hat.  I’m waiting for the moment when this fact sinks into the collective consciousness, and people pull them off their heads with a look of revulsion and a “WTF am I wearing?” look on their faces.  That day can’t come too soon, and hopefully happens on the same day as the Great UGG Awakening.

      • foodycat

        But do you think it will sink in? Clueless made the point about how stupid boys look with their jeans belted under their bums 20 years ago, and yet that fashion will not go away. UGGS are for wearing around the house.

      Someday the little Hudgens are gonna find a copy of this… and then you’ll be sorry!!

    • http://twitter.com/starrika Ali

      It IS ridiculous. However, I’m giving her points for creativity, simply for not staying in the twee-Disney-princess-star-box (see Swift, Taylor) or going for look-how-non-Disney-I-am-and-here’s-my-cooch (see Cyrus, Miley; Lohan, Lindsey). It’s certainly silly and a bit much, but at least she’s experimenting. And she gets bonus points for looking genuinely happy.

        but isn’t Vanessa Hudgeons the one where nude pictures or risque videos of her were discovered? Right around the time of one of her movies?

        • http://twitter.com/starrika Ali

          I think she or Efron had her phone hacked and the photos were risque but not full-on nude? I don’t remember exactly, but I’m basing my comments more on what she’s chosen to wear out/in magazine spreads.

        Swift is not, nor has she ever been, a Disney property. Hudgens is not all that creative, she is following the starlet pattern of landing a Disney job and then skanking it up to break away. See: Lohan, Lindsay; Cyrus, Miley; Lovato, Demi; Spears, Britney; Aguilera, Christina.  

        • http://twitter.com/starrika Ali

          Swift is marketed towards the Disney crowd and is riding the twee-train as hard as she can. Someone can be Disneyish without actually working for Disney. It was meant more as a cultural reference than a literal statement of fact.

          And while I think Hudgens’ outfits are a thousand shades of crazy, I wouldn’t label them skanky.

          • Anonymous

            I would — Super-Skanky in fact. It may be a common look among 20-something Southlanders, but it’s skanky. And not at all “experimental.”

            • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

              Wow, and you leave your house without getting offended?  She’s showing her thighs ONLY and one shoulder and the stuff she’s covering the rest with is hardly revealing.  Ugly, yes.  Tacky, certainly.  But “Super-Skanky”?  Not even close.

            • Anonymous

              Wow, I am not at all offended by “revealing” clothing. Skank is not defined by that parameter alone. This is a REALLY cheap-looking, ill-fitting, haphazardly put-together, meth-inspired look, which is simply atrocious and well … SKANKY.

            • http://twitter.com/starrika Ali

              So apparently the 70s and hippies were “meth-inspired,” lol. Come to parts of Ohio – I’ll show you what “meth-inspired” looks like. First off, she’s going to have to lose some teeth.

          And that is why my daughter would never be allowed on that godforsaken channel!  In fact, my father-in-law keeps wanting me to take her out on auditions for various projects (no, I don’t know why other than that she’s adorable and a frigging nutball, and why not try to cash in on her even though she’s a kid?!?) and recently he’s sending me all this Disney related stuff.

          Finally, I looked at him and said that if I ever lose my mind enough to let the princess talk me into a career before she can legally sign her own contracts, I will STILL not be crazy enough to let her on Disney!  Their contracts are the closest thing they can legally get to owning you outright and everyone from that channel loses their damn mind at 17!

      But I used to liven So Cal and I remember the few cold days and the High School girls would dress just like this, minus pullover and complain in class …I’m cold turn up the heater.  If they chose to wear a very light sweater it would be only around the waist with their arms from the elbows down to the wrist in the sleeves ?
      How weird !

      Sweaters/sweatshirts/hoodies and shorts is kind of an everyday thing here in So Cal. It is comfortable and believe it or not, practical. Yes our shoulders/upper arms get cold and our legs seem immune. I think all natives have learned the lesson that wearing sweaters + jeans will just make you too hot once the morning ocean clouds burn off unless it really IS raining and freezing cold all day (and that’s not the case in this picture, there’s lots of sun). But sweaters + shorts is just right most of the time along the coast. I feel like she’s dressed up since she’s not wearing Uggs. I always forget this look is not common in other places.  I agree she looks a little silly and over accessorized, but I think it’s kind of adorable because of her youth.

      On the one hand, I can totally see how loopy this outfit is and completely agree that the shorts/sweater/boots combo is more than a little ubsurd. On the other hand, I think that the only time you can get away with being seen in public looking completely out of your mind like this is when you’re young. I think the sweater is cute, as are the cutoff shorts. The bag and boots are beyond fug and I want to rip that thing off her head. Still, she’s young and she’s having fun with her style, plus she’s all starry-eyed over the cute boy there, so who am I to hate? Enjoy it while you still have it, kid.

      Any piece of that ensemble *might* work in combination with totally different pieces than she has deployed here, EXCEPT for those shorts.  Those just might be the ugliest shorts I’ve ever seen.  Well, maybe tied with Josh’s green-laced ones from his PR collection.
