Vanessa Hudgens in Blu Moon

Posted on June 20, 2013

We’re really trying here, Vanessa. But you’re not making it easy for us.


Vanessa Hudgens attends the Oakley Bali Pro in Benoa, Bali, Indonesia in a Blu Moon jumper.

Blu Moon Tie Bottom Jumper

On the one hand, we want to say, “She’s in Indonesia! Loosen up! Indulge in some flow and some pattern and some color!

On the other hand, those shoes are so hideous and that men’s belt such a bad attempt at giving this thing shape that we’re struggling mightily not to be total bitches. And we have to admit, even on the model this thing is kind of crazy-unflattering. It’s all balloon-y and blouson at those parts most ladies don’t want to be ballooning out. A paisley, pajama-style jumper isn’t necessarily a bad idea for summer, but this one just can’t be prettied up.

    I love batik as art. I’m not sure how I feel about it as western clothing.

    • swiss_miss

      This is paisley, not batik. Batik is a wax-resist dying technik, originating from Indonesia. Paisley is a pattern originating from Persia or India, traditionally made with wooden handstamps, not wax. While there might be some paisley designs made with wax-resist dying technik which would therefore be at the same time paisley and batik, I highly doubt that this paisley pattern was made with wax-resist dying technik. Since the pattern isn’t a traditionaly with batik associated pattern, this design (as far as I know) has nothing to do with batik. Since paisley design have always been used to decorate clothes, I really don’t mind them on Western clothing, though this really is pretty stereotypical.

      • Yes – it’s very difficult to do batik in those sorts of high-contrast colours, particularly in a large expanse, because you have to do the wax design, dye it, boil out the wax, then cover over every little bit of that colour with wax, dye again, etc. You usually end up with the colours bleeding together. And the traditional designs aren’t paisley patterns, as you said.

          I had an exchange sister from Indonesia, and she brought us several batik prints in high contrast colors (one very pretty one in red and black and white). She had pictures of the dying process for it! Not that detailed, though, so yeah, this probably isn’t batik — my head just went there because, well, Indonesia.

    Scrolldown fug. I thought this was going to be a sundress and I was totally behind it – she’s at a surfing competition, after all, an event at which most of the audience are going to be half, if not fully, baked. Then I saw the pants portion. No. Never.

  • Kira Lynne

    I actually stared at her hair before getting down to the outfit. That looks like what I thought was bangin’ as an eleven year old.

  • Meg0GayGuys6

    I could get behind this if it was a maxi, not a jumpsuit.

    And do something with your hair.

    • 3boysful

      I don’t mind the jumpsuit; it’s the harem cuffs that make my eyes twitch.

      Agree about the tresses.

  • plinkiedoodle

    This is batik? Not in my book…

  • FlyoverFi

    I never want to look at an outfit and have my first thought be, “How does one pee in this?”

    • That sums it up.

  • conniemd

    As ugly as the shoes and belt are, they look much better than the cowboy boots and WWF belt the model was wearing. I also agree with the poster that this would look really comfy as a maxi dress.

    • YES to the boots and WWF belt – exactly my same thought.
      The hair is also tragic. Honestly, the piece of the puzzle that bugs the most is that necklace. I don’t know why.

    • Rhonda Shore

      maybe but brown leather wasn’t a good choice either…

  • demidaemon

    Well, at least she didn’t wear her WWE Women’s (sorry, it’s Diva’s now) Championship belt with it.

  • Sara__B

    Vanessa likes the 70s. She dresses 70s a LOT! Why, girl? It was a crappy decade filled with crappy clothes. Trust me.

    • She does seem to go the way of the hippie more often than not.

  • Beardslee

    What stops me is the unkempt hair. I know that artful fingers put that together, but I want to tell that young lady that she’s not going anywhere until she uses a hairbrush.

    Also, I agree about the outfit. Less than the sum of its parts.

  • Monzerrat Ontiveros

    She looks like she is in a public bathroom

  • Janet B

    A different fabric would improve this look slightly. Different styling would also improve it slightly.

    I want to love this, but it’s too ugly.

  • Clueless_Jock

    I kind of love it.

  • marlie

    This is awful, but what’s even worse is that if it was a dress, that print would look great. As it it, it’s awful on VHudge AND the model.

  • thecitysleeps

    It looks better on her than on the model, and I kinda like it in its context. The shoes need to go though.

  • Just plain No. It looks like a cheesy faux Eastern outfit found at an old Shop Called East store in 1972.

    • StellaZafella

      Add a feather boa in the hair and keep everything else EXACTLY the same: Janis Joplin on Haight Street back in the day (or, one of those days, at least)…I know, ’cause I waved at her. She asked where I got my 8″ purple satin platforms…

  • MilaXX

    She accessorized it better than the model, but it’s still bad. If she had a better shoe and no necklace that belt could work. The hair, however, is just tragic.

  • decormaven

    And the gold jewelry is apropos of nothing. Tip: if you’re going to wear some intricate rings, please take the time to have a proper manicure. Why call attention to chipped nail polish?

  • alyce1213

    She’s a mess, as usual.

  • Targettaste

    Hate that the print pattern ended up as a crotch triangle.

    • joancarol

      Looks like a crotch bandanna.

  • hughman

    I <3 Coachella.

    • Coachella isn’t just a music festival, it’s a state of mind.

  • zenobar

    I thought it was a dress. I thought it was a dress. And then I scrolled down and IT BIT MY EYE.

  • Garcia Loca

    Whatever. She’s adorbs.

  • MartyBellerMask

    I still like Vanessa’s styling better than the model’s.

  • Ceur

    I’m amazed at how comfortable and confident she looks in this. Because yes, it is hideous. If she’s that comfortable in her own skin, stylists should challenge her more. She’s obviously not afraid of colours and clothes-that-are-not-minidresses, so they could have some fun with her.

  • Trisha26

    The jumpsuit is hein, I love the shoes! But at least she’s not wearing the boots and WWF champion belt.

  • imspinningaround

    Horrible. It looks like one of those blouson bathing suits designers assume plus size ladies clamor for.

    (And please don’t try to tell me about the fatkini. I’m not offended by seeing my plus size sisters in two-pieces, I’m offended at how TACKY it is.)

  • Lisa Utter

    “The Bottom Jumper.” LOL

  • mlle

    It makes me feel like my grandmother, but I have to say it: you’re such a pretty girl, but no one can see it when your hair is in your face.

    The outfit is egregious, though I do like the fabric itself.

  • It’s the shoes. They burn my eyes.

  • Anniebet

    Hippy dippy days are upon us again? I’m embarrassed to admit I like the pattern on the fabric, just not what it got made into.

    • oohsparkley!

      Finally! I had to scroll down to find someone else who didn’t hate it. I love paisley’s and hippie garb. It would have been cuter as a dress, but I don’t hate it.

  • Qitkat

    It’s cute on her, and she is channeling my gypsy soul. On the other hand, I would look like a paisley pumpkin disco ball.

  • nannypoo

    She’s cute but this is an ugly outfit and her hair’s a mess. Why is she still famous?

  • CMCH

    I really hate the trend of renaming jumpsuits “jumpers.” That one-piece article of clothing with a top and legs? It has a name, firmly established in the English language (and derived, incidentally, from the garb worn by skydivers). And, of course, there are already other articles of clothing called jumpers (pullover sweater in British parlance, sleeveless dress in AmEng). It doesn’t make it any cuter to rename it (not than anything could help in this case). /editor hat /pedantic grumble

    • StellaZafella

      I wonder if they maybe meant “romper”…on the right 3 year old this would also be hippielicious!

  • Guest

    I couldn’t gotten behind this as a maxi dress but it’s pretty awful as a jumper. Blech!

  • At least she didn’t go with the cowboy boots, that’s the nicest thing I can think of to say about this ridiculous getup.

  • myristica_fragrans

    that is the epitome of scrolldown fug! it needs to be a dress to work.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    It also doesn’t help that she looks like she pulled it back on just before she got out of the limo

  • LaSylphide

    Well, at least she’s not wearing the heavy weight champion of the world belt. Pretty print that would look better as a dress.

  • bertkeeter

    For once ANYA would have been a good call!

  • Aurumgirl

    That’s the kind of thing you wear when you know you won’t be going out of the house at all, under no circumstances, never.

  • stubbornthoughts

    I’m having a love/hate relationship with her hair. I LOVE the length, so much better. But I HATE it here, super gross.

  • Erin Hines

    HAHAHAHAHAHA! that is all.

  • prettybigkitty

    Props for styling it better than the model is. . . .right?!

  • Patricia Gillett

    Oh crap, these are back too?

  • PrunellaV

    Poor thing. Born 40 years too late.

  • ItsDicey

    And WTF is up with that hair? No excuse.

  • Patricia Gillett

    The backdrop is describing this so well.

  • Dagney

    oh for fuck’s sake….
