Vanessa Hudgens in Beverly Hills

Posted on April 19, 2013


Oh, wait. Sorry. We always make that mistake.

Send in the clones.


Vanessa Hudgens (pictured w/ boyfriend Austin Butler) heading to lunch in Beverly Hills.

Jeffrey Campbell ‘Joe’ Lace-Up Boots

Let’s keep this brief:

  1. Her dress is super-cute but her boots (which admittedly, are kind of badass) are ridiculously wrong for it.
  2. The rage the boyfriend’s look is inspiring in us is best left unstated. “Caviar.” BITCH, PLEASE.
  3. Blond Beard is really cute, no?

  • Same exact thought about Vanessa’s outfit. And I immediately had the urge to punch the boyfriend the second I saw his photo.

    • MartyBellerMask

      I wanted to punch Not-Justin once I saw the second guy. Not-Selena, why aren’t you with THIS guy??

  • PinkySlinky

    ‘Send in the clones’…can’t help but go all musical theater now. Loves me some Sondheim

  • I love that his parents gave him a housekey to wear around his neck, so he can let himself in when he gets home after school.

    • Alyssa

      I didn’t notice that until you pointed it out…I really don’t understand why?!

      • Pants_are_a_must

        Because caviar, that’s why.

    • Janet called; she wanted her Rhythm Nation 1814 key back.

    • DebbieLovesShoes

      I’m surprised his parents didn’t also pin his name and his bus # on his shirt, as well.

  • She can take off her knee socks and head straight to Coachella, home of The Stank (and completely unnecessary) Boot.

    • It is Friday of the 2nd Weekend afteralllllllll

    • Mismarker

      My feet are sweating just looking at the boyfriend’s footwear.

      • Celandine1

        My feet are sweating looking at both of their footwear.

  • Agreed on all points, gentlemen. Well said, as usual.

  • Eclectic Mayhem

    I kind of like the boots with the frock but then my formative years were spent wearing – what we in the UK called – Converse AllStars (ie Chuck Taylor High Tops) or Doc. Martin boots with leggings and floaty skirts. *shrugs*

    • conniemd

      Yeah, but it’s a sleeveless, summer dress and the boots are knee high with leggings. She’s either going to have very cold arms or extremely warm legs.

      • Eclectic Mayhem

        haha, yes – good point. I guess this is one of TLo’s ‘Stankboot’ moments!

      • TheAmericaness

        True. That’s what I wore though a lot. That’s why I brought a sweater with me. 🙂

    • BrooklynBomber

      Hi, EM! Havent seen you around lately. Have you been away, or just not here at the same time I am?

      • Eclectic Mayhem

        Hey BB! *hugs* How are you doing? I’m afraid it’s a combo of real-life getting in the way and – for a wee while there – Disqus not letting me post anything! I thought I was in the sinbin for bad behaviour.

        I’ve been keeping up with the PR posts just about. I’ve not seen the show but – on final collection alone – Michelle FTW!

        • BrooklynBomber

          Hi, EM. Disqus is nutty, for sure. Real life has been getting in the way a bit here, too. You haven’t missed much not watching PR; I mean, it’s fine, but nothing exciting. I hope you’re doing fine. Hugs back!

    • H2olovngrl

      Sounds like my life in the nineties to me!

  • muelonil

    Ditto all three points. (Also…Bieber 2.0 appears to be a latchkey kid)

    • Mismarker

      Haha! Right? I think that key opens a storage unit which is full of nothing but douche-tastic hats.

      • muelonil

        Yuuuup! OR maybe the storage unit is full of other clones…

        • Mismarker

          Holy crap. Did you just reference Dave Hester? I bow down!

          • makeityourself

            Oh boy. I find Storage Wars to be strangely addictive.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    We should be talking about Blond Beard and his meticulous grooming instead.

    • Yes. Yes. Yes. He’s gorgeous.

  • kaycem

    vanessa must have a magic milkshake b/c she brings ALL the pretty boys to her yard. first zac e. and now this beautiful son of a bitch: hating her.

  • Rand Ortega

    This is just too much hipster poseur bs for me. That sockless airhead wouldn’t know caviar if it f***ed him. The blond is pretty cute, but he’s obviously an agent/manager who changed out of his Gucci suit trying to dress like the kids so they’ll pay him more.

    • oooh, astute observation, i like that.

    • I don’t care if I’m the only one – I am hardcore in love with that highwater tomboy femme look. Jeans? Shoes? Jacket? Shades? Give ’em all to me now. It’s hot and current and super slick.

      • MissAmynae

        Put it on Rachel Maddow or The Sev, sans hat, and I’d seriously consider switching teams. Its a hot little look if you can pull it off.

      • BrooklynBomber

        I don’t really have an opinion about this dude or his look, but I think “highwater tomboy femme look’ is a pretty perfect description.

        • Agreed on the description, I like. For what it worth, I couldn’t find those guys more unattractive.

          • BrooklynBomber

            He just looks like a little kid to me. But I’m semi-old.

          • I love that you say that. I had typed “But then again, I’m ancient, i.e, nearly 40” but I was afraid it wouldn’t read as sarcasm.

      • I’d wear that, but I’m also a 25 year old female…

      • Agreed. I wish I could dress like this, but I’m too hourglass

        • Woot for hourglasses rocking the highwater tomboy femme! Add a pair of heels and you are good to GO, girl!

      • sekushinonyanko

        It’s very Shane from the L Word.

        • butterflysunita

          Except Shane from the L Word would look way, way better.

  • Sue_Asponte

    Oh, I want those boots! I promise I won’t wear them with prairie dresses.

    • ItsDicey

      Me, too. They’re pretty kickass.

  • lrober03

    Hate the boy’s hat, but I covet his jacket

  • Allyson Wells

    Too bad he’s wearing such a douchy outfit, but I think Austin Butler is so cute on The Carrie Diaries. Not feeling “blonde beard” though.

  • Isabel

    Boots – she spent the winter in places in the Southern Hemisphere and never got a chance to wear them yet. Wants to wear them before it gets too hot.

    • Lori

      She can come to my house. It’s 42 degrees and windy, so it feels cold. She does need to be aware that if she comes to my house she can’t bring the douchey Bieber wannabe and she and I are going to have a talk about her love of lace pants, but she won’t get stankboot.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    Blond beard is the only strong ‘yes’ in this whole set of pics. She looks cute, he looks douchey.

  • Mm, yes to blonde beard. Also, cute dress. Also, I like her boots, but yes, not with that dress. Blonde beard….

  • decormaven

    These kiddies need a good dose of Vitamin D and a de-poseur treatment.

  • Trisha26

    Blond beard would be cute without the beard. Is anyone else bothered by all this “shoes without socks” thing? All I can think is blisters for days. Don’t celebs perspire? Or chafe? (TMI. Ewwwh.)

    • formerlyAnon

      I loathe shoes without socks. But I am old, and no longer relevant to the ways of fashion.

  • muelonil

    Omg wait…did anyone else actually watch Carrie Diaries? Please tell me Caviar is not actuall Sebatian Kydd

    • RebeccaKW

      I don’t watch the show, but I’ve seen the commercials. At first, I thought it was the blond guy from Glee. But now that you say this, I do think it’s the bf from CD.

  • sleepycat

    love Blond Beard, although he looks rather warm buttoned up with dark jeans. (I wear shorts non-stop once it starts heating up, granted I am still in school and famous for wearing sweatpants out of the dorms (yes, i know style faux pas). If only I cared enough to look presentable at all times (I went through my fashionista phase when I was young), granted I go for the well-groomed type though. I like how this comment has turned into a reflection of my style habits.

    Oh and Caviar’s shoes are really cool, and Vanessa’s boots are a crime against fashion.

  • DaveUWSNYC

    Un-de-douchable couple.

  • H2olovngrl

    I can smell the douchiness from here…

  • MikeW_Vegas

    I immediately saw the blonde “handler” and thought about Gaga’s Hot Ginger..

    • formerlyAnon

      ** sob!**
      Oh Ed, you are missed.
      **sniffle. gulp**

  • VicD

    At least boyfriend is not wearing crotchtacular beiberpants

    • Any pants that are NOT Beiberpants deserve an automatic +1.

  • ceceliadid

    Boy, they look young and dumb.

    • formerlyAnon

      As did we all, once. Or, at least, I certainly did. And for far too long.

  • imspinningaround

    I had that dress in high school. I bought it at a head shop in Manayunk.

    Don’t buy your clothes where you buy a bong.

    • And never go to second location with a hippie.

      • Heather

        I think the comments on this post MAY be the funniest ever? And of course I love any Jack Donaghy reference (my favorite: “I’m expecting a call from 1985”).

  • MilaXX

    1. Agree – but considering the source, this ain’t bad
    2. At least his pants are covering his butt
    3. Yup, blondie is HGH levels of cute

  • GinaGeo

    My husband has a half dozen shirts like Blond Beard, but his are the real deal. And he certainly doesn’t wear them buttoned all the way to the neck. Good effort though.

  • ok her bf actually looks like less of a douchecanoe than bieber. which is really impressive considering his hat.

  • crash1212

    I dunno. I love boots with a summer dress…but I live in San Francisco and I would also be wearing a sweater. Must be a Northern California thang.

  • formerlyAnon

    Her boots are AWESOME.
    The boyfriend had best be under 20. If over and sporting that look, he needs to be terminated. Or at least sent somewhere to do filthy manual labor for $6.00 an hour, 10 hours a day, all summer.
    Blond beard is wearing those clothes well.

    “send in the clones” – You guys take the rest of the week off. You’ve earned it.

  • Imasewsure

    I’m kind of digging her whole outfit even if it doesn’t really match

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    Aww…Justin and Selena look cute here. (I knew it was Vanessa from the beginning, but it took me awhile to realize he was not the Biebs.

  • Blonde Beard is poppin’

  • butterflysunita

    Those boots with that dress hurt my eyes.

  • I dig that she looks sort of grunge. I’d totally love for that style to come back. I am ready to relive the part of my childhood that I actually sorta liked.

  • Blond beard is the only thing worth looking at in this photo.

  • stubbornthoughts

    Seriously, Caviar?


  • jorinde

    yeah blond beard! how can she even look at Caviar guy when blond beard is around?

  • norene_elysium

    I’ve seen really cute and you, Blond Beard, are no Ginger Handler

  • siriuslover

    The boots are too much Xena, Warrior Princess to work on Vanessa Hudgeons.

  • quiltrx

    It doesn’t help my eternal confusion (just like you uncles have) that their turd-spritzed-with-douche boyfriends even look alike.
    I wish we had several close-ups of Blond Beard’s hair and beard. We would have had a lot more fun discussing the merits of those.

  • kathrineb

    Her dress is nice. LOL at the ‘caviar’ hat. Seems kind of try-hard.

  • Qitkat

    I thought I was on the wrong blog for a minnit, the one with kiddies. She is wearing a dress, I swear, that I just saw this afternoon in Macys’ childrens department, shopping for my one-year-old niece.

  • bellafigura1

    1. Love every speck including the thigh socks and boots. Exactly what a kid her age should be wearing (looking at you, Hailee!)
    2. The hat. OMG, too effing funny. Gangsta-lite.
    3. Yes.

  • just3003

    I always thought summer dresses with boots were a ridiculous look, until I moved to LA. The climate supports them. It gets really hot during the day for a little bit, but otherwise is chilly – really cold at night. You can’t wear sandals, most of the year. You wear a dress or light clothing and have a jacket for evening. Warm boots make sense.

  • Maybe the boots would’ve worked better with that dress in brown. The main issue is that she’s simply too short for that boot length

  • lobsterlen

    I hope I am never behind Vanessa wearing wearing those boots in the airport security line.

  • zelavie

    Ugh. The douchiness is overwhelming.

  • Are knee braces chic now? I’m limping with glee.

  • I’m worried the baby stars are just fucking with us on purpose now. How else to explain why they all look the same?!

    Boyfriend looks relatively inoffensive to me, except for the hat. Those hats must be burned!
