Following in the footsteps of former Candie's alums Britney Spears and Fergie, "High School Musical" star Vanessa Hudgens was unveiled Wednesday as the new face of the junior brand's spring campaign. "Ever since I saw Fergie do the ads for Candie's, I fell in love," Hudgens said in a press release. "It's such an honor to be a Candie's girl."
Hudgens' fun campaign, which features shots of the actress sunning herself in a cute swimsuit and hanging out at an old-school diner, was shot by fashion photographer Tony Duran, and will appear in magazines and on billboards from March 2011.
Zac Efron's maybe-girlfriend sounded like she had a ball at the shoot: "We had a blast shooting the campaign, one of my favorite sets was using the diner countertop as a runway, it's definitely not every day I get to do that."
VHudge's Candie's predecessor Britney Spears has nothing but encouragement for the line's new spokesperson. "So fun being a Candie's Girl! Look out for the @Candiesbrand pics of their new girl, Vanessa Hudgens!" Brit tweeted Wednesday.
