Pairs Division: Hudgens and Hutcherson

Posted on January 18, 2012

These two should start dating so the entertainment press can come up with a catchy portmanteau, like “Hudgerson” or “HudgeHutch.”

On second thought, maybe not.


Vanessa Hudgens and Josh Hutcherson at the premiere of “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island” in Sydney. Vanessa Hudgens wears an Amanda Wakeley gown paired with Le Vian, Arunashi, and Sutra jewelry.

SHE: Looks like she never set eyes on that dress until ten minutes before these pictures were taken. Did she get dressed in the limo on the way over? Because that thing is wrinkled and showing off her bra. In addition, it looks at least a size too large for her. Even if it all fit, we wouldn’t love it because it looks like a Tonys gown for some Broadway legend far older than her. Plus her hair’s an absolute wreck and her makeup looks DIY. Come on now, girl. It’s still a film premiere. Pull it together. Score: 2/10.

HE: Looks utterly adorable and like he cares about how he looks. He could have used some fitting because the pants don’t fall on him as they should and they seem to be pulling across his hips a bit. As for style, we think this is a little drab for a red carpet. A white shirt with predominately white tie doesn’t photograph all that well and we find ourselves wishing there was a bit more contrast to be found in the outfit. Still, he put the effort in, which is more than we can say for her. Score: 7.5/10.

Combined Score: 4.75/10. For shame, V Hudge.

    She pulling a Jolie, but she’s no Jolie. Maybe in her dreams, and maybe someday, but not yet. 

  • Pennymac

    He doesn’t have his hands in his pockets!!! It should be an automatic 8 or 9, just because of that!

    • Terence Ng

      It’s because he’s too busy wrapping them in a deathgrip on her hips.

      • Pennymac

        You’re right. And I didn’t notice it before, but she is definitely leaning away from him and that deathgrip. 

    • Some body language expert on Good Morning America said this morning that a man’s hands completely in his pockets shows insecurity. Thumbs out means something else, but i can’t remember what.

  • Looks like she picked that up at Goodwill. Or bought some glue and fringe and Michaels and went crazy. FAIL

    I know it’s a designer gown, and it’s probably because it’s too big on her, but it looks cheap.

      And that…that…*thing*…that silver thing (is that jewelry or part of the dress?) only makes it look chipper.

  • Sarah Shafer

    Whoa body language! It’s almost as distracting as the dress-mess.

    • Yes! The leaning! She can’t get herself far enough away. Did he have garlic at dinner?

    Aside from Ms. Hudgens’s very cute face and nice smile, there isn’t a single positive thing to be said for her look.  The clutch–is it actually embossed leather?–looks like she grabbed it from the dollar table on her way out of the worst used clothing store in Australia.  It doesn’t go with a formal dress at all.  The dress…words fail.  Horror show.  I am so grateful that we can’t see her shoes!

    He’s a cutie, but he lacks confidence and ends up looking like a junior high boy going to his first formal dance.  Not a criticism–just sayin’.

      “Junior high boy going to his first formal dance.”

      YES. I couldn’t put my finger on it when I commented, but he has EXACTLY the same look & vibe the boys I went to high school with did when they had to put on a suit jacket. They were required to wear a collared shirt & tie every day, so they ended up looking exactly like this : “you can make me wear dress up clothes but you can’t make me buy into this!”

  • Jackie Gilliam

    Yay!  You’re finally covering the Journey 2 media blitz!  Get ready for more of him with the oncoming Hunger Games press too.  I actually prefer his suit/shirt/tie combo at the Melbourne premiere.  Check it out.  His tie kinda sorta matched her dress to that one, but it didn’t look planned.  She does look awful here though.  Oh, and I think they were dating or hooking up or sportf**king whatever the kids call it these days during/after J2 filming and after her split with Zac Efron.  She’s moved now though to a different Disney actor.

  • Lori

    She looks like she took “pairs division” way too literally. The top of that dress looks like a bad polyester figure skating costume. Poor Hutcherson deserves a better partner.

  • Anonymous

    Yes, he’s put together . . . for an investment banker.

  • Addicted2Glamour

    Egads her gown. It’s VERY “Small Town Drag Queen.”  Especially the spangly silver arrow  – it looks like it’s put there so the Queen can motion to her crotch with both hands every time the song she’s miming mentions the word “Lady.”

  • MilaXX

    I agree with her score but I would give him more than a 5/10. They are both just a wrinkled, ill fitted mess.

  • Anonymous

    She looks awful. I agree with the 2.

  • Anonymous

    He looks puffy, she looks puffy.  What the hell were they doing last night? Drinking beer and loading up on carbs?

  • Anonymous

    While it may need some help, at least he wore a suit, rather than jeans, a henley, and scuffed shoes.  She looks terrible-that gown is awful and I can’t figure out what’s going on with her hair.

  • Judy_J

    That gown looks like a cast-off from some third-tier ice skater. 

  • I could not pay attention to anything but the piece of black bra showing. Unacceptable. He looks good for a job interview, but the sole fact that he didn´t showup in jeans and beat up shoes should be enough.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything this awful on someone who hasn’t been in rehab. (I’m assuming Vanessa hasn’t been in rehab – has she?)

  • Anonymous

    Man, I feel so differently about her look! I think her face looks really pretty, and I like the dress (though I agree about the fit). I think maybe she’s put on a little weight lately, and while I don’t think it’s bothering her, it does seem to be bothering someone in her camp. That is my explanation for the fit, anyway. But the color I think is great, and all the fringe I think calls back to the Joplin aesthetic she’s been attempting lately without getting too Miley Cyrus about it all.

    Yes, her hair is a mess. But I still like the overall thought of this.

    That tie on him would have been great if he had worn a colored shirt of some kind.

  • Anonymous

    I didn’t pay attention to the clothes at first because I was too busy looking at the body language. She is pulling away from him so much that if he removed his arm from her waist she would fall down!

    A 2?! Is that the lowest score T Lo has even given out?

  • Anonymous

    Her: I just don’t like that dress at all. It’s kinda tacky and it does nothing for her. Her hair looks the way mine does when I’m doing housework.
    Him: He’s such a cutie. Mad kudos to him for putting in the effort when others his age can’t be bothered, but he looks hella uncomfortable in that suit. He’s probably wishing he were somewhere else in jeans with a beer in his hand.

    She looks like a total sleazeball. She always does. There, I said it.

    She is just a fashion disaster. She’s a cute girl, but man she looks so bad much of the time. He is as ordinary as could be in this outfit.

  • Anonymous

    Baggy orange dress with long, silver chest hair. Oh, win!

  • The whole dress is a Dreamgirls meets Nancy Kerrigan disaster! Can’t you just see the fringe flying as she twirls on the ice?

  • That dress is a Dreamgirls meets Nancy Kerrigan disaster! Can’t you just see the fringe flying as she twirls on the ice? Ugh.

    As much as I love Josh and his acting abilities, I think he looks really bad! He looks so stiff, and there is something about the suit color and shoe color that looks wrong in my eyes. He doesn’t look very put together to me! 

  • They did date @ one point.. there’s a hilarious interview on Australian tv where the interviewer asks how long they’ve been dating.. long pause and they make uncomfortable faces and then admit they broke up.. Methinks she broke things up by the way she’s leaning away and he has a vice grip on her

  • Jill Roberts

    They look like they were rolling around in the limo together.  Sexy time for VanJo!

    Ugh.  She’s #1 on my irrational celebrity hate list, but still… UGH!

  • I love him, he’s so damn cute.

    He’s graded a bit generously, no? he looks like he’s going to get drinks after work at the accounting firm. 

  • Anonymous

    Yeah I don’t know how she thought that any of that was okay.

    Hopefully he’ll have done a bit better by the time the Hunger Games premiers as that will be without a doubt, way more important than this movie

  • Jenna Kuhmann

    She has been in this business for how long now, and I’ve never seen her look good at an event, not once.  Girl, you are young and rich and very pretty…why don’t you act like it now and then?

  • I just want her to tuck in her bra!  And maybe throw a ratty sweater over that nasty 80’s Vanna White leftover! Even that would look better!

  • Anonymous

    They’re each Just So Cute!  And appear to have absolutely zero chemistry between them in these pics, so I don’t think you need fear impending portmaneaux designators.

    I’d give her a solid 3.5. It’s a nice color. He tried, but it’s soooo lackluster. And yes, the pants don’t seem to fit right in the hips. I also don’t like the tie with the suit, I think it drags down the suit, makes it look like an “I have to wear a suit and tie to work but I don’t have to think about them” choice. 7.0 at best.

    5.25/10 combined score.  Somehow that seems too low, given their individual cuteness and collective apparent goodwill. Ah well. Good will is not enough.

  • Ugh, Josh. I love you but comb your hair.

    she looks like the sweetheart of the rodeo with that tacky silver fringe.  and she just crawled out from under the bleachers where she was helping the bucking bronco riders warm up.

    Aww. In the first picture he looks like the guy I’m dating. He gets a 10 for that.

    She looks like every girl in my hometown, except less blonde. -7 for her.

  • she is sooo irrelevant, the dress is not cute, her hair is godawful. and yet she tries way too hard, idk why you even put up pictures of her

    When is her Stevie Nicks biopic coming out, because it seems like she’s been in character for it forever.

  • The Hudge looks like she’s magnetically repelled by that boy

  • Anonymous

    That is one ugly dress…. and all the other critiques apply as well.  he does look adorable.  The fit on the pants is due to the fact he has a deliciously fat ass.  Thanks god, enough with the scrawny boys and their flat butts and saggy drawerrs!  Bring on the booty!

    Oh my, were you ever so generous.
    She is a mess. He is so blah it is comparable to her mess.

    Ack, she looks awful.  Like she had a quickie in the bathroom with another gal and accidentally put on that gal’s dress while rushing towards the red carpet.

  • Anna Maria Diamanti

    The dress would be fine if it were the right length and she stood up straight.

    Why are so many celebrities unable to get their dresses and pants hemmed in time for the red carpet? Surely they have at least one fitting beforehand? Or so they send their tailors the fake back-of-the-headshot height instead of their real one?

    she looks AWFUL. matronly, cheap.
    he looks like he’s wearing his older brother’s hand me downs.
